Tired Of The Old Poll? Try A New One!

Thingy from Pondering Life is calling for the equivalent of the "mercy rule" on the favorite comedy team poll—the Marx Brothers have a comfortable lead over the nearest competition, the Three Stooges.

But we here at the Monkey don't believe in mercy, at least not where the Marx Brothers are concerned. Besides, we got two votes for Our Gang just last night and some interesting information about old radio broadcasts from Uncle Tom down in the comments section—don't want to shut that down.

Still, maybe Thingy will be satisfied if she has a second poll to vote on. This one really has no effect on anything. "What's your favorite Lionel Barrymore performance?" Grand Hotel? You Can't Take It With You? It's A Wonderful Life? Key Largo? Or some other classic movie, such as Captains Courageous, Dinner At Eight, Sadie Thompson, A Free Soul?

Have at it.

Plus it makes me smile just seeing the words The Three Stooges. They're only down by 7 votes -- there's still plenty of time to erase that gap.

Who Am Us and Thingy are choosing up sides on their respective blogs, re: the favorite comedy teams poll. Don't get left out! Remember what Thomas Jefferson said: "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."

Or as Zoe put it, "Go go Marx Brothers!"

Only down by 5 votes now -- nearly within the margin of error. Hold on to your hats all you hat people!
