The time has arrived to share a few details about one of my wellsprings of inspiration.
My numero uno guro (oops! — make that guru) is Harpo. A paragon at keeping his mouth shut. A prototype at dealing with authorities.
One example: Extremely practical advice on how to deal with PASSPORT DIFFICULTIES —
These role models of mine are not only Americans, they have other unmentionable attributes. Everything I ever needed to know I found on a screen somewhere.
You had me worried, usx. Great clip, I love the Marx brothers. Did you know that Groucho lost it all in the crash of ’29? At least we can hope that after the coming crash all those marxists in Hollywood are left destitute.
yeah, the post title was one of those Yahoo News types of headlines 🙂
Hey, that’s a great way to distract the border guards so maybe they don’t notice the U.S. birthplace on a Canadian passport. I’ll have to try that next time!
Darn, I was going to make a comment about Groucho upon just reading the post headline. I might have known that was coming. That was great. What other unmentionable attribute, that they’re all of the male sex? Or how those males with yet another unmentionable attribute may be distinguished from some others without that same attribute?
*How marvelous! (And just what we need more of in all this muck that we’re all muddling through, plus….a sense of humor.) Of course, I expect that these days the lot of them would have been tasered, machine-gunned, or whatever is the method of those in authority in these humourless times.
What a wonderful world it would be, if it could be so, (Harpo, Chico, Groucho, and even Zeppo!) Marxist…But where is Margaret Dumont?!……………..Great Choice and many thanks…. Will
