Bob Hope, ski-nosed master of the one-liner and favorite comedian of servicemen and presidents alike, has died, less than two months after turning 100. Hope died late Sunday of pneumonia, his longtime publicist Ward Grant said Monday. Hope's family was at his bedside at his home in Toluca Lake. The nation's most-honored comedian, a millionaire many times over, was a star in every category open to him — vaudeville, radio, television and film, most notably a string of "Road" movies with longtime friend Bing Crosby.

I was just about to post this, very sad. He did so much good for other people during his career, how could you not respect him.

Proof you don't have to use every 4-letter word to be funny.
And that, sometimes, it's nice to just give a little something back.

Never be another Bob Hope.

One of the cool lines from Hope was: when asked where he wanted to be buried when he died he said "Surprise me."
