Groucho Marx


The picture of me on the cover of TIME has changed my entire life. Where formerly my hours were spent playing golf and chasing girls, I now while away the days loitering around Beverly Hills’ largest newsstand, selling copies of the Dec. 31 issue of TIME at premium prices … Yesterday, despite the fact that it was raining, I made $13. This is all tax free, for I steal the copies of TIME while the owner of the newsstand is out eating lunch . . .
