A full-blown pie fight would ensue followed by the Three Stooges running away as the tune “Three Blind Mice” plays in the background
Anyone familiar with their antics knows that the Three Stooges were a “slapstick” trio in the most literal sense. They began shooting their short films at Columbia Pictures in 1934. Their career in vaudeville had ended and they were free of previous unfair contracts with the abusive and alcoholic Ted Healy. The Columbia Pictures contract was not that much better, but the Stooges found much fame later when those short films were revived on TV in the 1950s. Their slapstick comedy still attracts many viewers on YouTube where Curly’s “Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk” and “I’m a victim of “soicumstance” will live on forever. The genius of the Three Stooges was that everyone has a bit of “stooge” in them. I think about how many more short films they could have made had modern HVAC systems been widespread at that time. They could be a trio of bumbling HVAC technicians hired by someone of high social standing to “repair” an HVAC system in a large house. Curly and Larry would accidentally break a refrigerant line spraying freon into Moe’s face. In real life, this would be quite dangerous to wanna-be DIY HVAC repairmen. In the movies, Moe would pick up a pie and throw it at the other two, missing them but hitting the snobbish homeowners who just entered the room to check on “the boys”. A full-blown pie fight would ensue followed by the Three Stooges running away as the tune “Three Blind Mice” plays in the background. I’ll always be a fan of the Three Stooges, but my advice is to not be a stooge and try to make HVAC repairs yourself. Instead, contact a reputable and qualified team of HVAC professionals and hope that the right three men show up for the job.
