Groucho Marx Entertained the Troops With Weed Jokes in 1943

By

Groucho Marx wrote this very sweet letter to U.S. troops in Suriname in 1943, in which he manages to express sincere appreciation for the troops but also include a joke about accidentally eating marijuana from his vegetable garden for an entire month. You know Harpo got him into it, that scallywag. Anyway, that versatility is why Groucho’s the greatest. That and the fact that his facial features are distinct enough to be made into a mask.
