January 10, 2011. The Gookie

"The Gookie," Harpo Marx's iconic funny face. The eyes cross, the cheeks puff up and the tongue rolls.

Since I was 15, I've been making that face to make my younger cousins laugh, then my nephew and nieces, and finally my cousins' children.

Lon Cheney was called "The Man of a Thousand Faces." One of the telltale signs of PD is a masked, expressionless face.
Could I, the man of one face, still make "The Gookie."

The challenge was made. His second called on my second. My second ran away, so my third answered. Deep beneath that mask, would "the Gookie" be awakened.

I did it. Still Champion. I accept all challenges.
