I'm happy that somebody "got" the reference! I feel really old when nobody gets the Marx Brothers quotes!
Glenn, you are a man of discriminating taste!

Groucho, Chico, Harpo, Zeppo, Gummo  ...

How'd I do?

Ed like Gummo and Zeppo......you forgot the original brother.... Ives.
Ive's toys make happy boys. Ives goes back decades before Lionel trains.

Yes, you got the five. Karl was a Black Sheep cousin.
Their mother was Minnie.

Gentlemen, I have reconsidered my life membership:
I sent the club a wire stating,
PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION.
I DON'T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB
THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER. ;)

So, who was the funniest...the Marx Bros, Laurel and Hardy ("...a fine mess you've got us in again, Stanley!") or Da Tree Stooooges? ("Oh...wise guy! Nyuk Nyuk!").
"Why a duck"...per Charlie Brown--"I can't stand it!"  ;D
