    Smooth peanut butter? Heresy.

    Larry Fine, Moe Howard, Curly Howard, Shemp Howard, and "Curly Joe" Besser

    I could name all five, but seeing as caltechgirl already did that in the source post, I felt it would be a bit derivative.

    I'm not a big fan of peanut butter, unless it's smooth with honey (no jelly or jam for me). Even then it's only an occasional meal now, as I had way too much in poorer and younger days.

    That was kind of interesting. I still like peanut butter. In fact, most days I have a spoonful before heading off to the gym in the mornings.

    You missed a Stooge: Joe Besser came between Curly and Curly Joe (hence the latter's name, not unlike Pope John Paul...) -- don't feel bad, I always forget him meself...

    ...and Curly Joe's last name was DeRita...

    ...and apologies to Colossus -- I knew that Pope reference sounded familiar...
