When I was a kid, our school would occasionally entertain us by gathering everyone in the auditorium to watch the films of The Three Stooges, The Little Rascals and Laurel & Hardy on old-school projectors, as it was cheaper than letting 300 kids loose on our small town early.  I was fond of the Stooges, but never really appreciated the comedic duo of Stan & Ollie, for reasons I strongly suspect are due to subtleties in their performances.  But are they better than Martin & Lewis?  Abbott & Costello?  Spade & Farley?  French & Saunders?  It’s a hard call, but one that Faithful Spoilerites get to make the call on, thanks to today’s laugh-a-minute query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is leaning towards Pryor and Wilder, but part of that is that Gene was hilarious in everything, asks: What pairing constitutes the BEST comedic duo of all time?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
