The Stooges funniest and most poignant one ever, 30 June 2000
Author: MisterWhiplash from United States

The Three Stooges must've known what was goin' on in Germany (all three are Jewish), so thety decided to do a parody. It is not only they're funniest one yet, but also the'yre most meaningful (I thought this parody was much better than the Groucho Marx one in 1938). Here, The stooges play Hailstone, Gailstone and pebble. They become the heads of Moronica (I love the slogan: Moronica for Morons) and start to create chaos. Very smart comedy, including scarily right on impression of Moe doing Hitler (though I crack up at the thought of him speaking) and Curly doing Mussolini. Gags of course, but the puns are hilarious as well. A++
