  • No, the real question is, where in the world did you hear that women "don't get the three stooges"? I don't think anyone under the age of 40 gets the three stooges, if you do than your a freak of nature.
  • As a child, the unusual adult behavior. As a adult, the absurdity of it all!
  • That was 'the act' they did. More of a "slapstick" kind of humor, or stage humor. Very classic and very funny.
  • It's because women think too hard about it to laugh.
  • It's just funny. More absurd than funny, though.

  • I don't get it at all!
  • I've always thought the Three Stooges were kinda dumb. *shrug*
  • i think its called silliness-humor at no ones expense, just the 3 of them. i love them.
  • It's a "guy" thing...if you have to have it explained to you, you'll never understand...
  • Hey! I'm a woman and I find the 3 Stooges side-splittingly funny!
  • Women see three men slapping poking and kicking each other. men see three guys messing up the simplest of jobs and smacking each other about like we wish we could do on some of the morons we have had to work with. When people mess up it is kind of funny. If you watched a man try and fix a small leak and as he was fixing it he ended up have several big leaks and acting like he is in a panic you may laugh too. You have to look past the slap and pokes and kicks.
  • I don't get it either.
  • I don't know if you find any of the clips on "America's Funniest Home Videos" to be funny but their humor could be considered a scripted version of that.
  • Because there are few things funnier than the Niagra Falls routine!
  • When I was a kid, I enjoyed them, but then kids like everything that's on TV. As an adult, I just find their humour tedious and childish. I don't 'get' 'The Simpsons' either, but there you go.
  • I love a lot of the dialogue. Judge:...and please, drop the vernacular! Curly: this ain't a vernacular, it's a derby! classic.
  • Yeah, and we don't light our farts, either. Go figure!
  • Smoke some pot hang out with someone who does think they are funny and play "Pardon my scotch." If you are not laughing hysterically then you have no sense of humor. Half of the funniness is laughing because someone else is.
  • I have always hated them. So has my husband and most of the people I know around 40-65 years old. I personally think they are loud, annoying, cruel, and nothing worthy of a good laugh. I just couldn't get into laughing at men that treated each other so mean and with such great disrespect.
  • I think it is the Venus/Mars thing. There are many exceptions, as noted in the other answers, but mainly, you either have that kind of funny bone, or you don't. I wish to caution people to not use blanket statements like "no sense of humor". I've been accused of that more times than I can count. It is not funny to put down people who laugh at different things than you do.
  • Simple. The Three Stooges allow the REST of us guys the luxury of having a superiority complex. I suppose women don't find it funny because they probably find Stooge behavior to be no different from how they see men on a daily basis.
  • My mother and sister love watching it and think it's funny..It's not just a guy thing.
  • The people here really need to CHILL OUT! The Three Stooges are "mean, cruel, obnoxious, bad role models..." - Are you kidding!? The Three Stooges was a comedy act comprised of three brothers, and many of their best friends, *pretending* to be those things. There was no forcefulness in the act - nobody did anything they didn't want to do, for the sake of comedy. And obviously, they didn't actually slap and kick each other - the sound effects made it believable, while in reality they were barely touching each other.
  • Spreadout! I am a fifty year old woman and I have watched and loved the Stooges most of my life. It's funny because people don't behave that way. It's funny because it's broad and silly. It's funny because damn...haven't you...even a little bit...wanted to have a food fight? It's funny because they are inept and dysfunctional but always together. It's just plain funny!
  • Whoever said that nonsence never watched me spit root beer out of my nose watching it
  • Men don't take many things as seriously as men. I think once one has children, our brains become wired differently.
  • Well firstoff Im a chickk. Not manyy peoplee find it funnyy. But mee on the other handd i think its hilariouss. Whats not funny about people standing around fuckin each other upp. Men prolly find it funny tho cuz most menn aree immatureee and havee nothinn better to do thennn sit around and watchh the shitt. but I wouldntt blamee emm. Shitt cann be funnyyy.
  • I do not think it is what they do, I think it is how they do it. They are clowns, trying to get a laugh. They knew their audience at the time, and that was mostly male. Vaudeville was a rough place, and times were hard. People looked for entertainment, and to see someone else slapped for a change made them laugh. Its the same today for toilet humor and F-words. The comedy is a reflection of the audience, not the performer. The performer is smart enough to know you and make money off your personality.
  • Its so random its funny and back in the minds of all mankind we love to see violence even if its something we don't perfer
  • Sublimation. ;-)
