    A great take on an old vaudeville routine. The 3 Stooges did my favourite version of all time. The last time I heard it was in the 70′s, on the Mike Douglas show (Moe Howard was the guest).

    On the floor?
    No! Let me have it!


    This is probably my favorite scene ever. Lucy was (and is) the pure definition of comedy perfection. ♥

    And I LOVE her gasp! Can’t get enough of it. So funny!

    I am not 100% sure….but pretty sure this is an old routine passed down through the years in the old vaudeville days of the stage in the early part of the 20th century…..very likely pre-dates the three stooges. In fact many of the routines the 3 stooges did were from the silent film era….like the clam in the soup that kept squirting curly. Of course the three stooges did these old routines perfectly. Nothing wrong with updating old successful routines for younger audiences.

    the three stooges was the birth of this gag

    Martha? Slowly I turned. step by step inch by inch I looked for a rock and I couldn’t find one so I grabbed a handful of Niagara Falls and I let him have it!

  20. KiminyLala says:

  21. kribbod says:

    this is stupid, what does cake have to do with turning?

  22. mrfamous333 says:

    It started on Vaudeville in the 20s and 30s. I Love Lucy is a bit later.

  23. Pikatroid42 says:

    Which came first, this or the Three Stooges version?

  24. Matthew6870 says:
