Default Bob Hope - A little Humor from a great commedian

I just received an email from one of our 9th Infantry Div Commo Platoon Vietnam buddies with a reminder of Bob Hope.

===

I had forgotten that he lived to be 100, and also didn't realize it has been 10 years since he died. Always enjoyed him, his movies and his show. He touched a lot of lives during his life. Thought you might enjoy a bit of memory touching, so sent it along to you. Enjoy and recall a great comedian.

For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your Grandparents.
And thanks for the memories. WHAT A WONDERFUL E-MAIL.

I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART.

Tribute to a man who DID make a difference.

ON TURNING 70
'I still chase women, but only downhill.'

ON TURNING 80
'That's the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing.'

ON TURNING 90
'You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.'

ON TURNING 100
'I don't feel old. In fact, I don't feel anything until noon.
Then it's time for my nap.'

ON GIVING UP HIS EARLY CAREER, BOXING
'I ruined my hands in the ring. The referee kept stepping on them.'

ON NEVER WINNING AN OSCAR
'Welcome to the Academy Awards, or, as it's called at my home, 'Passover.'

ON GOLF
'Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.'

ON PRESIDENTS
'I have performed for 12 presidents but entertained only six.'
ON WHY HE CHOSE SHOWBIZ FOR
HIS CAREER
'When I was born, the doctor said to my mother,
Congratulations, you have an eight pound ham.'

ON RECEIVING THE
CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL
'I feel very humble, but I think I have the strength of character to fight it.'

ON HIS FAMILY'S EARLY POVERTY
'Four of us slept in the one bed. When it got cold, mother threw on another brother.'

ON HIS SIX BROTHERS
'That's how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.'

ON HIS EARLY FAILURES
'I would not have had anything to eat if it wasn't for the
Stuff the audience threw at me.'

ON GOING TO HEAVEN
'I've done benefits for ALL religions. I'd hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.'

Give me a sense of humor;
Lord, give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to the person receiving this
The grace to pass it on to others.

===

Although I was a newbie to Tan An Vietnam in 1968, I had the pleasure of seeing live Bob Hope's Tour Dong Tam Vietnam Christmas 1968 with the still beautiful Ann Margret.

Thanks for the post and thanks for the memories. I remember watching Bob Hope on TV when I was just a young lad. He was one of the greats.
