CHICK HUETTEL: A Christmas comedy: The wisdom of W.C. Fields

Published: Saturday, December 22, 2012 at 05:57 PM.

“On the whole I’d rather be in Philadelphia.”

Can we approach life with happiness and fun all the way to the end? W. C. Fields showed us the way. I just bet he was amazed when he was in front of the heavenly gates, and even more astounding, he’s keeping the whole crew up there in stitches.

Fair winds to ye matey.

Merry Christmas.
