I would bet money that, like our Shemp, the name came from the Three Stooges, a comedy trio whose short films made a huge impression on Boomers and were still somewhat culturally relevant for the youth of GenX. Lots of physical comedy.
@anthracite Quite possibly! We're a generation too young for much knowledge of those, beyond just knowing they exist, and the names Larry, Curly, and Moe
Boomers often liked to judge character based on which Olde Tyme Comedy Trio you liked more: the Marx Brothers or the Stooges. Personally I always found ‘em both kind of weaksauce.
I'm a grumpy queer dragon lady and this is my quiet cave for me and some friends.
@anthracite ah, we just recognise it as the name that the Spyro the Dragon devs put in every game they made as an inside joke
