The Three Stooges Ride Again

Outlined against a blue-gray plasma screen, the Three Stooges rode again. This time, though, theirThreestooges
names weren’t Moe, Larry and Curly but, rather, OJ, A-Rod and Barry.

Bumbling, stumbling and anything but humbling, the neo Three Stooges are the uber role models for everything that’s wrong with today’s society. Whether it’s OJ’s criminal behavior, A-Rod’s surly self-centeredness or Barry’s lying and cheating, the Three Stooges are there in all their glory for us to see.

And, sadly, the media loves to shine the spotlight on these goofballs. I find it all rather tiresome and long for a TV Land marathon of the real deal.

Who wouldn’t prefer to see Moe poking Larry and Curly in the eyes than view OJ in another courtroom, A-Rod muffing another ground ball or Barry parking another home run into McCovey’s Cove? Here’s hoping it’s strike three for at least two of the modern Three Stooges.
