Saturday 9: The Curly Shuffle (1983)
Unfamiliar with this song? Hear it here.
2) It was released to coincide with the Three Stooges getting a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame. That's the Hollywood in California. There are 23 other Hollywoods in the United States and two in Ireland. Have you ever visited any of these 26 Hollywoods? If so, which one? THE Hollywood. In California.
3) The inspiration for this song was Jerome Horowitz, aka Curly Howard of The Three Stooges. He had many signature phrases, including "nyuk, nyuk, nyuk," "woob, woob, woob," and "sointenly." Give us a movie quote, and be sure to tell us who said it.
4) Curly's older brother, Moses Horowitz, was better known as Moe Howard. Moe was convinced that Lou Costello of Abbott & Costello developed his screen persona by stealing from Curly. It turns out he was right! Lou Costello was previewing early prints of Three Stooges films before they were released to the public. Tell us about a time your gut instinct told you something that turned out to be true. Sometimes I can sense doom. I impulsively sent a gift to my friend Reg via Amazon. Just a little surprise certain to brighten his mood. But I just knew it was a bad idea somehow. Today I got a message from Amazon that it's been delivered "near the garage." REALLY?! Not the front door? So far I haven't heard from Reg. If I don't get word by end of day tomorrow, I'll shoot him an IM and ruin the surprise. GRRR! I really would have preferred to be wrong.
9) Random question -- Your best friend needs help hanging a picture. Would you be comfortable holding the nail so your friend could swing the hammer? Better for me to hold the nail than to swing the hammer. I'm a klutz, and therefore far less trustworthy with a hammer than my best friend.
