Bexx:It think it's the weird weather. I had a headache all day. I took so many drugs and I still have a slight one. Excedrin is the only thing that works and they took it off the shelves for some recall. And I can't find it anywhere. Take some meds.
“All the Stooges go on individual emotional journeys in the film, but perhaps none so much as Moe, who joins the cast of “Jersey Shore” and even gives Snooki a different kind of poke than she’s used to: the classic Stooge eye-poke! “We first wrote this 12 years ago, and all the hitting and abuse does start to wear you down a bit. So, we wanted the Stooges to split up, and back then we had Moe ending up on ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.’ But that show’s long gone now, so we rewrote for ‘Jersey Shore,’” explains Peter.”—
from Yahoo!’s look at the upcoming Three Stooges film (which is sure to be an instant classic).
Let’s go through all the reasons why this particular caption is messed up, shall we? (Remember, there about five other captions that are equally stupid, appalling, depressing, etc.)
1) “All the Stooges go on individual emotional journeys in the film…” So what you’re saying is, these are characters in a film that has a plot and character development? I suppose we can all look forward to that. (Not.)
2) “…but perhaps none so much as Moe…” Bleh, ugh. Not that I want to see any of the Stooges go on this “emotional journey,” but wouldn’t it have been more interesting to see Curly, a character generally considered to be the stoogiest Stooge, go on the greatest journey? You know your movie/story is bad when Moe is the deepest character/the one most everyone in the audience is meant to relate to.
3) “who joins the cast of ‘Jersey Shore…’” Nope. Nope, nope, nope.
4) “and even gives Snooki a different kind of poke than she’s used to: the classic Stooge eye-poke!” WHOA! YAHOO! That is simply uncalled for. Look, I get it. Jersey Shore is a morally reprehensible trainwreck of a cultural phenomenon, and most of the subject matter and themes presented on the show are directly contributing to the fall of Western civilization as we know it. But to insinuate that Nicole Elizabeth “Snooki” Polizzi is some sort of trollop? For shame, Yahoo!, for shame.
5) “All the Stooges go on individual emotional journeys in the film, but perhaps none so much as Moe, who joins the cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ and even gives Snooki a different kind of poke than she’s used to: the classic Stooge eye-poke!” Sometimes it’s a good idea to go back and read a synopsis of your story to see if, in the big picture, it actually makes any sense at all.
6) “We first wrote this 12 years ago…” So you’re telling me this film is twelve years in the making?
7) “…and all the hitting and abuse does start to wear you down a bit.” Oh, really, Pharelly Brothers? The physical comedy that originated in a vaudeville show and eventually found its way onto a half-hour television program doesn’t hold up well over the course of two hours?
8) “So, we wanted the Stooges to split up, and back then we had Moe ending up on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” But that show’s long gone now, so we rewrote for “Jersey Shore,”’ explains Peter.” Translation: “So, because we wrote this script twelve years ago, a lot—and I mean a LOT—of the jokes we wrote did not hold up well. As such, when we rewrote the script, we had to add a bunch of jokes that would make sense to an audience that was born exactly twelve years ago. In this manner, we replaced ‘Queer Eye,’ a show that has almost zero cultural relevance today, with ‘Jersey Shore,’ a show that, while currently popular (though one could argue that the zeitgeist surrounding the show has certainly fizzled), will, of course, eventually become a distant cultural relic, possibly by the time our film is released on Blu-Ray. We liked the idea of having a very timely reference in the film because it would have been a lot harder to write something that would hold up for years to come. We wanted this film to be one of those films a dad twenty years from now puts on for his kids to watch and while they whine and plead for him to turn it off, he says something like, ‘Shut up! This is classic cinema! Look, it’s Snooki! She’s hilarious.’ Something like that.”
