Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk

According to a recent Zogby poll, nearly 75% of the interviewees could name each of the Three Stooges — Larry, Moe and Curly — but only 42 percent were able to name the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. In addition, 77 percent of Americans could name at least two of the Seven Dwarfs, while just 24 percent knew two of the nine justices of the Superme Court.

These days, it's tempting to say there's no real difference between the Three Stooges and the three branches of government. Except maybe that the Stooges' brand of stupidity was funny and harmless.

And the chances of getting an intelligent legal decision from the Dwarfs are probably better than putting faith in The Supremes.

Thank the liberals for dumbing down the schools. Oh no , Johnny can't read, we will pass him anyways or else he'll get a complex!

I;ve watched Jay Leno a few times when he takes to the streets and asks the fucking simpliest questions that EVERY American should know. Stupid, stupid.

Interested -- I have to say I hope the Three Stooges are remembered long after George Bush, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Teddy Kennedy and Pat Robertson are forgotten....
