100 Facts in 100 Days: Fact 88

Posted on January 22, 2007 @ 4:31 pm

88. I always keep a pair of Groucho Marx novelty glasses handy — you know, just in case. I’ve found that there aren’t many problems in life that a pair of Groucho glasses can’t remedy. For instance, let’s say you’re stuck in traffic. Just grab the Groucho glasses from the glove compartment, put ‘em on, and the time flies by. Plus, it’s a source of entertainment for all the other motorists when they glance over and notice the gleam from your plastic nose.

The best use I’ve found for Groucho glasses, however, is as a teaching aid. Last semester, for instance, I was preparing to deliver an incredibly boring lecture to my class. I mean, this lecture was so mind-numbing that I was falling asleep just writing it. So, at the last minute, I donned the Groucho glasses and taught class wearing them. Sure, it was still a boring lecture, but it’s hard to fall asleep when your instructor keeps sneezing because he’s allergic to his own fake mustache.
