Curb Your Catechism: Larry David to Play Nun for ‘Three Stooges’

By  · Published on May 2nd, 2011

Respect has to be given to anyone moving forward on a terrible idea with such gusto. The Three Stooges is a monumentally dumb idea, especially considering the legacy left by the trio in comedy, but if you’re going to blow the goat, you might as well go all out while doing it.

The latest piece of absurdity comes from Deadline Poughkeepsie, which reports that Larry David will don the habit to play Mother Mengele for the picture. Because nothing says screwball comedy like dressing a Jewish man in a Catholic garb and giving him the last name of a Nazi who made lamps out of people.

Instead of this, can’t The Farrelly Brothers just remake Doctor Death: Seeker of Souls or something?
