Hats off to Harpo

Today is the birthday of Harpo Marx.
Harpo got his stage name during a card game. The dealer (Art Fisher) called him "Harpo" because he played the harp.
"I was the same kind of father as I was a harpist - I played by ear. " Harpo Marx

Good thing he didn't play the saxophone. Saxophono Marx doesn't have quite the same ring as Harpo

He could have been Cello Marx or Piano Marx or Oboe Marx
