You're in Trooooouble... by xanykaos You're in Trooooouble... by xanykaos
Here's a tip:

If you ever find yourself in an alternate dimension/time strip where the Marx Brothers are still alive, and you pop backstage to see them, and they look at you like

One of my favorite things to read about were they're off-camera antics. Apparently, as nutty as the four of them were on stage, they were worse in the mundane world. My favorite story is probably the one about them ganging up on Alexander Woolcott and force-stripping him down to his underwear. Why? For the hell of it.
Notice--the Four of them were nuts. That means Zep too. It's weird to think of him as being trouble, but he was. Probably second to Chico in trouble-trouble, somewhere behind Harpo for "screw-with-people-for-the-heck-of-it" trouble. But they were all crazy. Glee.

Colored version of this coming up soon.

Oh, my. :D Marx Brothers art? My day just got a hell of a lot better.

I don't think they stripped Woolcott, though--it was one of the producers of the revue "I'll Say She Is," wasn't it? The one who tried to negotiate with them about taking the show to New York? Ahhh, God only knows. But those men were so wonderfully insane, and it's great to see you doing such a fab tribute to them.

Have I mentioned I love them?

I once had a dream that I met Harpo. There was this parking complex full of beds instead of cars and they were all full of people. I went all the way to the top level looking for an empty bed. And then, what do I see? Harpo! asleep! Without the slightest hesitation I roll up his shirt- and blow a razzberry on his tummy. He wakes up, looks at me, smiling, and ties a piece of red string from his shirt around my wrist.
