    Im a perfect example of the grumpy, old man.Im really good at it.

    -Ned Beatty, Actor

    One would think that going through life as a grump is not a good thing; however, an Australian behaviorist, Professor Joe Forgas found that grumpy people are more pro-ductive on the job because they are better de-cision-makers and think more clearly than their happy-go-lucky counterparts. Whereas positive mood seems to promote creativity, exibility, co-operation and reliance on mental shortcuts, negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking, paying greater attention to the external world, Forgas said.

    It seems that the being grumpy may affect the heart negatively, though. Health psy-chologist Dr. Martha Whiteman at Edin-burgh University found in a study of 1,600 people that bad-tempered folks have hardening of the arteries leading to heart disease more often than their relaxed coun-terparts.

    THE GRUMP IN ALL OF USInarguably, everyone gets a little grumpy sometimes, but some people are grumpy all the time. Theres something loveable about a grump, a curmudgeon - a surly, cross, ir-ritable, grouchy, snippy, short-tempered person. Maybe they serve as our alter egos because we all cant walk around being surly and nasty all the time. Or can we?

    Its not easy being around a grump or cur-mudgeon, but we sure enjoy watching them on screen and on stage.

    HERE ARE A FEWFAMOUS GRUMPS

    W. C. Fields (1880-1946) was one of the original curmudgeons. He was an actor, co-median, writer and juggler, making over 40 fi lms in his lifetime. Fields openly disliked

    women, children, animals, religion and Christmas. He married Harriett Hughes and had two children. His marriage didnt last, but he remained on good terms with his ex-wife. After his marriage to Hattie, he lived with actress Carlotta Monti, who remained at his side until his death. Report-edly, he voluntarily fi nancially supported his children and loved his grandchildren. So much for his image. He also was not fond of fame. It is said that he would hide behind the bushes at his home and shoot people in the legs with his BB gun when they would stop and gawk. Fields was probably best known for his drinking, al-though he didnt drink much in his early days. Eventually, though, it was part of his persona in fi lm, on stage and in his real life. Alcohol-related illness was the cause of his death on a Christmas day. He was 66. It was reported that a friend discovered Fields reading the Bible before his death. When his friend questioned why Fields had taken to the Bible, he responded, Im checking for loopholes.

    Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Disney fi lm originally released in 1937, was the dwarf who was indeed grumpy about everything, but es-pecially the presence of Snow White. Like W.C. Fields, he wasnt fond of women and didnt trust them. He eventually accepts and grows to love Snow White, of course, and cries when she dies and is sad to see her go after her Prince Charming awak-ens her with a kiss. Grumpy was actually a softy underneath, but he still personifi es the stereotypical grump.

    Oscar the Grouch on the childrens pro-gram Sesame Street is a green monster who lives in a trash can. Youd be a little cranky if you lived in a trash can, too! Oscar made his debut back in 1969 as an orange Muppet monster, but changed to green after the fi rst year. Somehow, Os-

    car manages to fi t an unimaginable array of treasures (junk) in his trash can. Hes a hoarder who doesnt have anything nice to say to anyone. His voice is played by Car-roll Spinney, who was the original Oscar voice.

    Walter Matthau (1920-2000) brought grumpiness to an art form. He was in nearly 70 fi lms, 16 stage productions and numer-ous television shows. He played both nice guys and villains and took home Golden Globes, Tonys and Oscar Awards. In all his work, he is probably most famous for his portrayal of the character Oscar Madi-son in The Odd Couple. Madison was the sloppy, sportswriter curmudgeon op-posite the fastidious Felix Unger played by Art Carney in the stage version and Jack Lemmon in fi lm. He and Lemmon played grumpy old men in Grumpy Old Men and the sequel Grumpier Old Men. Talk about loveable curmudgeons these guys were the epitome. The Matthau-Lemmon duo made a total of 11 fi lms together.

    Archie Bunker, the grumpy, opinion-ated, bigoted character in the 1970s sit-com All in the Family was the guy we loved to watch. Bunker, played by Carroll OConnor, was a blue collar worker, a fam-ily man and an extreme conservative New Yorker. The bantering between him and his liberal son-in-law stole the show when they played out every imaginable politically in-correct topic in the comfort of your living room for 12 years.

    HONORABLE MENTIONSFamous grumps are too numerous to high-light, but here are a few more worth re-
