All three of us were in our bed this morning. I was making funny little gestures and Mia which both she and Beth were finding amusing for different reasons.

Her: Daddy must be one of the Stooges. Which Stooge are you?
Me: Iggy Pop.
Her: What? Was Iggy Pop one of the Three Stooges?
Me: No, he was one of The Stooges.
Her: I don't think that counts.
Me: Well, I've always hated the Three Stooges.
Her: I don't think you can be a guy and hate the Three Stooges. They'll take away your membership.
Me: I have a penis and I have a daughter. I've got the goods and I've procreated. I think I've met the major membership criteria.

I'm with Beth... I think it's weird that you don't like the Three Stooges... I thought that was a requirement to be a guy...

I say again, gnuck, gnuck, gnuck.

You know if I didn't have an SE who had no great affection for The Three Stooges as well, I'd curse Beth for having nabbed one of the last few good men out there... ;)

Meh, never did like The Three Stooges that much anyway. A fun cultural fallback, but not much else.

I like the Stooges in small doses, but Abbot and Costello are *much* funnier. I remember watching A&B movies when I was about 9 or 10 and my dad just couldn't get over the fact that I loved them. Even now if I'm flipping channels and I come across an A&B movie, I'll watch it.

Hey, we agree on something. I don't like them either.

Thanks Chris. It's been a great year!

I'm an Abbot and Costello girl myself, but if I really had to choose, I'd take Charlie Chaplin any day. He was the man.

I never liked the Three Stooges. Never been a big fan of physical comedy in general.

I know a papers guy if you need a membership card.
