BOB HOPE IN HEAVEN
For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your Grandparents.
And thanks for the memories
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.’
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.
