Thursday Thoughts

When I was child, the local television station often ran old reruns of movies and any Marx Brothers movie was always a joy to watch. 

While Groucho was the witty guy with all the great lines, Harpo was always intriguing.  Never speaking a word, he chased all the women and wooed them with his harp music.

I just discovered that Harpo's son has started a website, Harpo's Place,  dedicated to his father to make sure the "real" story of his life is not distorted.  If you're a fan too, check out the site.  And be sure to check out the Harpo Marx Family Rules

The Marx Brothers are truly wonderful. And the family rules make sense too - especially the one about the pool cue ;)

wv: zlethimp. Someone ought to invent a whole new language out of wv words. Esperanto? Pah!

white: I liked the rule about standing on your head if the world gets too much for you. Standing on your head gives you a whole new perspective on the world. Unfortunately I can no longer perform that act which greatly elucidates my current curmudgeonly attitude.
