Out of the Box: W.C. Fields Market Advice
Some of you, especially the young whippersnappers, will not know who Fields was because you are too young. That’s ok, time to learn a few new tricks. Today, is not a normal “Out of the Box.” It is a look at the markets from a different perspective.
William Claude Dukenfield, who gained popularity by the name W. C. Fields, was an American actor, writer, juggler and comedian. He was one of the most influential comedians of his era. Fields started off his career in show business as a juggler and for some time he was even regarded as the world’s best juggler. However, his foray into Broadway and later into Hollywood is what made him a comedy star. He became particularly famous after performing in the Broadway show ‘Poppy’ in 1923.
So there you have it. A little wisdom to start off your day. A little something for all you little Chickadees.
