Groucho Marx & TV Bookstore Display

 

A Reddit user posted that photograph of a bookstore display featuring a dead television and a classic Groucho Marx quote.

It is the perfect quote to remember this weekend: “I find television very educational. Every time someone switches it on I go into another room and read a good book.” Wikiquote traces the famous Groucho quote back to Halliwell’s Filmgoer’s Companion by Leslie Halliwell.

You can find hundreds and hundreds of iterations of the quote online. Follow this link to see more photographs related to the quote.
