I'm not THAT old

I just had to explain to a fellow student here in business school who the Marx brothers are. Remember them? Those funny guys in black-and-white?

There's Groucho: "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
There's Chico: "Well, who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes?"
There's Harpo: The mute who would cut things, set them on fire, and was a master of physical humor.
There's Zeppo: The straight man.

There are certain events and people in history that shouldn't be forgotten. Albert Einstein. Three Mile Island. Abraham Lincolm. Martin Luther. Martin Luther King, Jr. John F. Kennedy. And the Marx Brothers. Let them not slip into the night!

This is quite possibly the most right you have ever been!

One of my favorite Goucho quotes;

"Follow my advice, and you'll have more women than you can shake a stick at...if that's your idea of a good time."

My favorite is an exchange between Groucho and a woman he's dancing with:

woman: "Hold me closer"
Groucho:"Lady, if I were any close to you I'd be in back of you"

Good stuff.

Oh, and a piece of Marx Brothers trivia I just recently aquired (which means everyone but me has known this for years), if you look closely you'll notice that Groucho's moustache is painted on.
