Alternate Maxisms

At office, especially today, I was stifled for humour and warmth of any sort. So I fell back upon my tried and tested Mr.Marx, Groucho Marx of course. His quotes are as tart as a lemon pie and as witty as your significant other at the peak of your 'being attracted' phase! Go on, smile away!

I don't care to belong to a club that accepts people like me as members.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.

Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?

Those are my principles. If you don't like them I have others.

He may look like an idiot and talk like an idiot but don't let that fool you. He really is an idiot.

From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend reading it.

Ice Water? Get some Onions - that'll make your eyes water!

You know I could rent you out as a decoy for duck hunters?

You've got the brain of a four-year-old boy, and I'll bet he was glad to get rid of it.

A man's only as old as the woman he feels.

I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book.

I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it.

If I held you any closer I would be on the other side of you.

Women should be obscene and not heard.

Why was I with her? She reminds me of you. In fact, she reminds me more of you than you do!

Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife.

As soon as I get through with you, you'll have a clear case for divorce and so will my wife.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.

- Groucho Marx


  1. Amazingly hilarious! Would be great to use some of these in apt sitautions.

  2. "Behind every successful man is a woman, behind her is his wife."


  3. This is so funny!! Especially the "I have had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn't it" is such a straight faced sarcasm!! write more!

  4. Hey there, Cuckoo,

  5. # SBS: Way to Go!

    # FTD: Hmm! Shall use this at the right time. Just you wait!

    # Kiki: Woody Allen is really funny too. Google him for more laughs.

    # Y: I know, Groucho is one of a kind. Easy to get addicted to. Thanks for your compliment. :)

  6. Hello Cuckoo

    I chanced upon your blog from the comment you left on Y's. Anyway - for what it's worth, I rather liked your blog particularly the "Alternate Maxisms" and "Grumpy Mee" pieces :)

    All the Best!

  7. Duck Soup is one of my favourite movies. Hilarious. In fact, the funniest guy is the one who doesn't talk at all. Harpo, the harpist :)
