Gag of the Month

The gag is simple.  A man who has been riddled with bullets takes a drink of water and water comes spurting out of the bullet holes.  The above screen capture displays a variation of gag featured in The Three Stooges' Three Pests in a Mess (1945).  Following are three other variations of the gag.

Olsen & Johnson's Hellzapoppin’ (1941)

Abbott & Costello's The Time Of Their Lives (1946)

The gag is used for a pivotal moment in the story when Costello's character realizes that he was fatally shot by soldiers and has turned into a ghost.

Married with Children (1991)
