I never forget a face, but in your case, I’ll be glad to make an exception.”   —   Groucho Marx

(One of the funniest men of all time!  I’m not sure if he would make it in 2019, as his humor would probably be labeled as “misogynistic”.  How would Winnie the Pooh put it???  “Oh, bother.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I didn’t like the play but then I saw it under adverse conditions – the curtain was up.”   —   Groucho Marx

(Ooh!  Burn!  Groucho was the master of the subtle – and not so subtle – insult.  All in good fun though.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I find television very educating.  Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”   —   Groucho Marx

(Just a little irony, from one of the kings of the Golden Age of Television!  I highly doubt that he found anything dull about the paychecks TV provided him!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(I’m sure Groucho was born a smart-mouthed, middle aged, wise guy!  He might have looked like a baby, but it was probably like that Our Gang episode, where Stymie figured out:  Dey ain’t no babies.  Dey’re fidgets!  The Marx Brother’s movies and the Our Gang/Little Rascals shorts were the funniest things I’ve probably ever watched.  Although, The Birdcage, with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane, was probably the funniest modern era movie I’ve ever watched.  I laughed so hard I cried.  Laughter is definitely the best medicine.  I feel so cleansed after a real good laugh.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A little tougher than it looks!  I always love a good Groucho quote.  We need to see more of them, in my opinion.  A little surprised we didn’t get one last Mother’s Day quote.  I’ll give you a Groucho Mom quote:  “My mother loved children – – – she would have given anything if I had been one.”  Not sure I get it, but he said it!  Be well and do good, friends.  Oh!  And, a Happy Mother’s Day to all of our moms!)   —   YUR

My mother loved children – she would have given anything if I’d been one.”   — Groucho Marx

(Sometimes your life has such strange coincidences.  Yesterday, a friend lent me a copy of “Duck Soup” that she had just picked up at a garage sale, and this morning I saw a clip of Groucho guesting on the old Dick Cavett Show!  AND, just yesterday morning I was humming to myself “I love to go swimmin’ with bow-legged women, and swim between their legs”.  Don’t ask me what inspired that!  Cuz, I ain’t tellin’.)   — YUR

A child of five would understand this.  Send someone to fetch a child of five.”   — Groucho Marx
