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!

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. Wink

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!"  Grin
