Your Blitz is on the Fritz!

Three Stooges Hitler.jpgAs I sit in my upstairs study working on URCNA committee work, I can hear my son downstairs watching the Three Stooges--the episode where Moe dresses up like Hilter and Curly like Mussolini.

My son is just plain cracking up.  Life is good. 

My favorite Stooge episode is the one with the laughing gas.   "Disorder in the Court" is also a classic.  "Drop the vernacular . . .  That's not a vernacular. . . . It's a derby."  If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about.

While there may be others that I don't know about, can you guess what noted Reformed theologian is a huge Stooges fan?

Wild guess: Meredith Kline?

(wistfully) How I miss Saturday matinees at the Surf theatre in Huntington Beach. For $1 Three Stooges and Steve Reeves' gladiator/sword & sandal movies ran all afternoon.

Much of this catechism informs my world-view today.

Vern Poythress?

Of course we could also ask which stooge is which among the Whitehorse Inn gang. As in Kim = Curly, Mike = Moe, and Rod = Larry???

(They should really do a skit!!!)

And just who would be the dispensational stooges? All six of them: Curly, Curly ... Moe, Moe ... and Larry, Larry???

No, way! Rod would have to be Moe and Mike would be curly! But that's not fair to Ken! Who would he be?
He is not only a fan; the Three Stooges are under the umbrella of his scholarship.

His name is R. Scott Clark.

Berkhof or Van Til? Oooop wrong tense (is, not was).

All of the answers above could be right for all I know--my guess is RC Sproul.

I have "Disorder in the Court" on a DVD--it's more Shemp than Curly on the DVD--but that line you quote is pure Curly.

FOr the reocred--I like both of them.

I also have "Disorder in the court" on DVD. It's a true classic! Long live the stooges!

My favorite is any of them with a pie fight!!

My favorite is, "Calling all Curs", but "Disorder in the Court" runs a close second.

I think I have Curlyitis- "I'm trying to think, but nothing happens"

I'll go with RC Sproul as well, he just seems like the type who would appreciate the Stooges.

Judge: Do you swear...
Curly: No, but I know all the woids.

Court clerk: I'll SUE you for this.
Moe: Oh, sue-perstitious eh?

So do we get an answer on who the Stooge fan is?

"In Slippery Silks" The cabinet maker stooges, who later inherit a dress shop, attempt to reproduce a $50000 ancient chinese cabinet brought in by Vernon Dent......

Dent to the Stooges boss: "Will this cabinet be in competent hands?"

Curly: "Certoinly!.... we're all incompetent!"
