Strike!, 21 June 2001
Author: Dan Mudd from USA

An Ache in Every Stake (1941) stars Moe, Larry, and Curly as ice men delivering frozen water to hot people.

Curly said it best when he said, "Why don't you just get an electric icebox that does away with work, worry, and bother?" Curly's hilarious turkey stuffing/preparation bit is in this! Two potatoes diced! Can of peas! Pinch the salt! Loaf of bread well soaked!

Larry also is funny breathing in natural gas...I almost fell over!

They end up ruining two cakes of the judge (Vernon Dent) and destroying the judge's birthday party dinner.

This is one of my favorite stooge shorts that is right up there with Three Little Beers! Watch for it on TV or Columbia Home Video.
