The Wit of the Marx Brothers
Groucho on art (from Animal Crackers):
    Captain Spaulding (Groucho): Tell me, Mr. Chandler, where are you planning on putting your opera house?
    Roscoe W. Chandler (Louis Sorin): Oh, I thought I should like to put it somewhere near Central Park.
    Spaulding: I see, why don't you put it right in Central Park?
    Chandler: Could we do that?
    Spaulding: Sure, do it at night when no one is looking. Why not put it in the reservoir and get the whole thing over with. Of course, that might interfere with the water supply. But, after all, we must remember that art is art. Still on the other hand, water is water, isn't it? And East is East, and West is West. And if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does.
