Fridge / The Three Stooges

Fridge Logic

  • Moe, Larry and Curly never stuck out as particularly competent at anything they did, but in the shorts where they serve in the military they tend to have combat roles. How did they ever get past basic training?
    • America was headed into The Big One; they didn't have the luxury of being able to refuse anyone.
    • Its not just WW2, they've served in other military forces, like the one where they're southerners during the Civil War and keep switching sides. The same thing applies though, in all cases they were conflicts where beggars couldnt be choosers.
    • These were the Stooges. Their commanding officers must have sent them into combat just hoping to be rid of them, permanently. Those three even made their sergeant in basic training cry.

Fridge Horror

  • The end of Men in Black. The Stooges are allowed to carry firearms.
    • In a fair number of their shorts they're on the police force and even hold the rank of detective.
    • They've had guns way more often than that, but this is the Three Stooges universe, no one ever dies if they get shot, unless its funny.
  • The movie leads to one inescapable conclusion: The Man Your Man Could Smell Like is directly responsible for the existence of Jersey Shore.

The Movie:

  • Rule of Funny notwithstanding, how do the three spend all their lives in an orphanage and never learn how to take care of babies?
    • Would you let them anywhere near babies after seeing how they handled everything else?
