The best of the 'baby' shorts, 26 May 2003
Author: csweetleaf2 from Walla Walla, WA

I thought that this was one of the boys 'overlooked' shorts and it seems that this short isn't a hardcore favorite, I thought that this short was awesome, like the scenes when they try the diaper on Curly, when Larry buys the baby beer, when the baby throws spaghetti at Moe, when Curly couldn't pronounce artichoke and Moe tells Curly that it is 'you oughta choke', or when Larry uses a pair of scissors and accidentally stab Moe's butt, the best part of the short is the chase scene.
