Happy Birthday Philly Native Larry Fine.



If Three Stooge Larry Fine were still alive today he'd be pretty old. Because he was born in 1902.

I don't choose to do the math on TBY because if I did, you'd never really learn it now would you?

Did you know Larry Fine was a violinist and a boxer? And that his dad accidentally spilled acid on his arm? Yup. It's all right here in this Wikipedia article.

Happy Birthday Larry Fine. Wherever you are.

I had a boss who looked just like that. And the mentally retarded office messenger used to bellow "LARRY!" at him every day.

My favorite Stooge was Shemp.

No, not really.

I always thought the guy was a little strange, but that's just me. I imagined that he was an angry drunk, but I heard that from Howard Stern first.

Happy Birthday to the man I modeled my hair after!

Sklersdad - I think it really needs to come out a bit more on the side to be called a Larry Fine.

The less I seek my Stooge the closer I am to Fine...

Peace - Rene

My favorite is the courtroom one.

I think I heard they picked larry just because of his wacky hair.

I vote for heaven. A heaven full of pies he can throw, rugs he can trip over, and triple eyed virgins for him to...you know...poke ;)

Now there's a man who suffered from his art. Right between the eyeballs.

Everyone knows Larry Fine was a boxer from the episode where they're professors in the all-girl school.

Also, Moe was an accomplished paper-tearer-musician-type-person.

True story.

Moog - I don't remember the boxing one. Now I need to see it.

You don't remember the boxing one?

That's because I fucked up that comment and wrote 'boxer' instead of 'violinist.'

Stay with me...I'm stupid.

Is this "That Blue Yak" or "That Blue Yuk Yuk Yuk" ?

Oh wise guy, eh?
