Honeymoon Excess

Connie Bailey is ought but carefree
This young frail ties the knot with all three
One wed to this troupe'll
Buy bed that's quadruple
What's entailed is too naughty to see.

David Cairns

Thelma Todd and Harpo Marx in Horse Feathers (Norman Z. McLeod; 1932). In the final scene,  Todd's "college widow" Connie Bailey marries Harpo's dogcatcher, Chico's "iceman", and Groucho's school president! Title by Donald B. Benson, prone to excess.
