Curly's head names!
« on: October 25, 2006, 08:31:15 PM »
I'm not sure if this is posted anywhere, but I was wondering if there is a complied list of names used for Curly's head.  I've heard them used tons of names:

Puddin' head
Flatbush Flathead

That's all I can think of off the top of my (grape)head!  lol

There was a thread started a long time ago by someone asking the same question, and our beloved leader Dunrobin posted a list of the "head" names in ascending order that he used for the number of posts made by members here at - perhaps he may indulge you on this.

I think Moe called him 'ironhead'  a few times.

I know that Moe has used the term "lunkhead" a number of times, possibly to all of his "underlings."

I was watching Flat Foot Stooges the other day, & Moe calls Curly "Burr Head" (when asking about Curly's horse harness invention).

Nyk, Nyuk, Nyuk...Hey guys and gals ! I'm new here and happy to be here ! I was reading the thread and thought, hey, Larry had some cool nicknames too...

1. Muscle-Bound Porcupine (my favorite)
2. Weasel-Faced Porcupine
3. Nest Head (Just heard Moe call him that today)

Chime in...

Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk..

Ostrich-head and fossil-skull apply, I think.

These come from the New 3 Stooges cartoon titled "3 Lumps and a Lamp". When Curly-Joe wishes for the moon, Moe lays out an arsenal of insults unparalleled in Stooge history:
"Why did you have to wish for the moon, you
know nothin'
[deep breath]
[deep breath]

A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?
