He did nothing and got the snot beat out of him for it every time. If Moe was a theorem, Curly and Shemp Holy deities, and Joe, a little fey, Larry is eternal.

If Larry Fine were alive today...come to think of it, if Larry Fine were alive today he'd be desperately clawing and scratching at the inside of his coffin trying to get out. Be that as it may, if Larry Fine were alive today, he probably would have died of congestive heart failure trying to blow out 109 birthday candles.

Let's take a moment to remember some of our revered frizzle-topped Stooge's "Finest" moments. Hurry up and get dressed, Larry! The girls'll be here soon for your birthday party, I'm warning you!

Ah... the Stooges. Guilty pleasure of my rerun-watching youth, and vehicle of parental disappointment.

My kids have absolutely no use for Larry, Curly, and Moe. My heart breaks.

What? No still of Larry circling his finger to his temple from "Who Done It?"

"Shemp? Are you okay?":

My two daughters were ganging up on my son over some minor trifle. The words and accusations were flying at my boy when he stopped the argument cold by yelling "SPREAD OUT!".

I was never more proud of my son or parenting skills than on that day.
