The New Yorker Archives – 1929
For all you Groucho Marx fans out there, a wonderful piece of New Yorker history from 1929.
And, for “You Bet Your Life” devotees, as an added incentive only from Around the Block, “Say the Secret Word and divide a hundred dollars — it’s a common word, something you always have with you, you see every day or you can find around the house.”
Who knew Groucho was a magazine contributor?
Oops, “Magazine,” that’s the Secret Word. I guess I was never good at playing games. So, never mind about dividing that 100 bucks!
But enjoy Groucho’s essay. It’s a treasure.
