Hello, Happy Friday! I came across this cute happy dance photo of Laural and Hardy on Photobucket. So it gave me the idea to check out their Official Website. I liked their website so much I thought I would share some of what I found on there with you. I enjoy watching the classic comedians of our day sometimes. It's just simple, silly, slapstick comedy. My brothers and I always watched the Three Stooges growing up, so I had to include a video clip of them. And come to find out they are coming out with a new movie of the Three Stooge in the spring! I hope you enjoy flashing back to these classics as much as I did, and may your weekend involve something that makes you want to do a happy dance!
Thanks for visiting,

The official date of death of Mr. Laurel and Mr. Hardy:
Hardy: Aug 7, 1957.
Laurel: Feb 23, 1965.
8x7=56. 2x23=46. 56-46=10. Laurel was 75. Hardy was 65. 75-65=10.
Hardy died at 65 in '57, which is 75 backwards, Laurel died at 75 in '65, which is the age when Hardy died in '57, which is 75 backwards, which is the age when Laurel died, in '65, at age 75, which is '57 backwards, which is when Hardy died, at age 65, to infinity to the tenth power, which is how long Laurel & Hardy will continue entertaining a world in need of laughter ... if we have anything to do with it!
At one point, Stan Laurel had married his first wife once, his second wife twice, and his third wife three times. 1-2-3. Then he spoiled that arithmetic progression, but created a different symmetry. He went back and married his second wife, a third time, and concluded by marrying his fourth wife once. 1-3-3-1. What does this mean? TWICE TWO? Maybe TWICE THREE? You tell us. Perhaps Oliver Hardy had the answer in SONS OF THE DESERT when he said, "I never realized that such a deplorable condition existed in your home.
In addition to fishing, Stan's other interests included raising ducks and hydroponic gardening (a process in which plants are grown in chemical solutions rather than soil). He once successfully cross-bred a potato and an onion, but couldn't get anyone to sample the results.
