A correction. I mistakenly gave the age of George Burns at the time of his death at 101, when he was acttually 100. Really, the man played God. He could have been anyage he wanted to be after playing that role. It kind of reminded me of an old slam. To paraphrase, Burns was so old, his Social Security number was 3.

Meanwhile, back to Bob Hope, he had an extensive collection. His Joke File, which he updated almost everyday for the freshest joke, held 7 million, which was kept in two safes. He made a large donation to the Library of Congress of personal items and effects he gathered over his many years. Take a look at it here.
