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
:o)

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