If you were to 'play' Groucho Marx in a Pulp adventure set during his lifetime, how would you do it?

* as the historical Groucho Marx, comic
* as one of Groucho's fictional characters
* I wouldn't

In a miniatures game? Captain Spaulding would be the most action-y of his characters, with the possible exception of the Go West character.

I'm presuming this wasn't about RPGs or playing him in a movie…

From "Duck Soup" as Rufus T. Firefly, supreme leader of Freedonia in it's war with Sylvania:
"Hail, Hail, Freedonia, home of the Brave & Free!"

Only if I could bring Harpo and Chico along (Zeppo just isn't all that exciting, and Karl is a downer at parties).

Zeppo is a crucial member. It is always worth striving to achieve Zeppo-Consciousness — the ability to stride calmly through a world semi- and full-surrealism and still be the romantic lead.

And bring Gummo who is always standing right behind you!
