Celebrity Birthday of the Day – October 2

Groucho Marx was the leader of the Marx Brothers. He is a classic comedian who has had an undeniable influence on most comedians that followed. He was the unfortunate victim of dying soon after another celebrity, as his death was only three days after the death of Elvis Presley, thereby pretty much going unnoticed. Kind of like Farrah Fawcett. But even in death, his jokes lived on. Shortly after his death, a note was found in his home stating that he wished to be buried on top of Marilyn Monroe. And just for a bit of trivia: you know those gag disguise toys you can buy? The ones with the big, black glasses attached to a huge nose and a mustache? Well, that toy was modelled after Groucho Marx!
