It's a common household woid; something you see and use every day.
Groucho, along with straight man George Fenneman, are brought back to the small screen once again and what a treat!
No one like Groucho, ever; his razor wit and sharp ad libs on the show are truly remarkable. The audience is pure 1950s; a sea of faces in black and white and many wearing eyeglasses and the women dressed to the nines, years before velour sweat suits became the vogue for the casual lady.
The contestants are nervous but charming and innocent, providing rich fodder for Groucho's aforementioned rapier wit and enjoy being part of the show; prizes are secondary...the real show is the interplay betweeen Groucho and his guests.
When a contestant misspeaks Groucho is right there ready to pounce with a zinger; and you can "bet your life" it is a doozy!
Groucho had a daughter, Melinda, and when she was about 7 years old she went to an exclusive (translation: Jews excluded) country club in Beverly Hills as the guest of a contemporary, and was promptly ordered out of the club pool.
Groucho heard of this and immediately called the club manager stating "Hey, my daughter's only half Jewish; is it OK if she goes in up to her waist?"
So settle back and enjoy a trip back to the 1950s and a great slice of pure Americana, the one, the only, GROUCHO!
