Most Violent Stooges Sequence Ever?

Here's a scene from They Stooge to Conga (1943) wherein Moe gets a spike in his head, eye and ear - in that order.

To desensitize viewers from the carnage, sound effects make the spike being removed from Moe's skull sound like a champagne cork popping.

I've always found Moe's retribution (it involves a blow torch) particularly harsh.
