I’ll moider you, Porcupine!

Hey Blog Guy, whatever happened to the Three Stooges? Are they retired?

Not many people know this, but they moved to South Korea and ran for office, because we hadn’t yet started electing comedians to Congress here.

They’re in the Korean National Assembly now, wreaking typical havoc, as you can see in this studio publicity shot from “The Three Stooges, Seoul’d Out!”

Awesome! So what’s going on here?

I believe Moe just grabbed the microphone and shouted, “Mr. Kim has won the lottery! Is there a Mr. Kim here?”

Of course, hilarity ensues.

Wait just a minute! I thought it was the Marx Brothers who entered Korean politics!

Nope, they’re down in Honduras. Try to keep up.
