Zen Moe-an

While reading the following ancient parable in Alan Watts' "The Way of Zen" (1957, Pantheon Books) I was suddenly enlightened:

The Stooges were Zen masters!

Don't believe me? Read it for yourself:

On one occasion Moe and Curly were out for a walk, when they saw some wild geese flying past.

"What are they?" asked Moe.

"They're wild geese," said Curly.

"Where are they going?" demanded Moe.

Curly replied, "They've already flown away."

Suddenly Moe grabbed Curly by the nose and twisted it so that he cried out in pain.

"How," shouted Moe, "could they ever have flown away?"

This was the moment of Curly's awakening.

(It'd sure wake ME up, nyuk nyuk!)

Farrelly Brothers and MGM making new Stooges movie!

WOW! A new Three Stooges movie is in the works over at MGM - and produced by the (in)famous Farrelly brothers!

Now, this could be really good ... or really awful.

Kinda like that Gawdawful Kevin James movie, "Mall Cop" (shudder), which I VERY reluctantly plugged back on the old side ... and really wish I hadn't).

So ... we'll see!

I do kinda like the idea that it's not another biography of the Guys, like the one produced by Mel Gibson back in 2000.

Which was actually pretty good. So I see no reason to reinvent the wheel. (Unless you just have nothing better to do - always a possibility in this economy!)

So good luck, Farrellys! We hardcore, never-say-diet Stooges fans wish you only the best!

Just don't blow it, knuckleheads!!!

Welcome to the Stoogeswoman's Blog!

Hi, friends and neighbors! As you may or may not know, my name is Christine Lehman, and I run an (in)famous website called Women Who Run With the Stooges!

Yep, that's right - I've decided it's finally time to move into the 20th century and get me a blog. Who knows, if it woiks out, I might even get into that Twitter thing too (nyuk nyuk)!

Anyway, welcome aboid, knuckleheads! Tell your female Stooge-lovin' pals to come on over! (Stooge-lovin' guys welcome too - but behave!)
