BODY OIL -- The results of a confidential survey taken at Yale found that almost 10% admitted to having sold sex on campus. Co-ed hookers aren't called "women of the evening" --
They're called "women of the the all-nighter."
CHUMP CHANGE -- Baltimore Raven QB Joe Flacco signed for a record $20
million a year for six years. Sounds like a bundle but the record
probably won't stand for long. Pope Francis has the same agent and just
wait until his salary is announced.
TOE-TAPPER -- The New York Jets recently auditioned a highly-regarded
female place kicker who proceeded to execute a 13-footer. Too bad the
coaches were too embarrassed to suggest she wait for a tail wind.
-- The first presidential press conference occurred one hundred years
ago this week during Woodrow Wilson's administration. It went well
until a cub reporter with NBC News asked the president if he'd guest on a
show she was pitching -- Barbara Walters didn't get Wilson, but she did
sell "The View."
DOUBLE DIGITS -- The tech world is abuzz over the new Samsung Galaxy
S-4 phone which can follow your eyes and pause movies when you look
away. It takes commands with the wave of a finger and if you're giving
the finger to your server, it automatically dials AT&T.

"Having spent twenty years writing for the indefatigable Bob Hope, and traveling all over the world, Bob Mills is well qualified to salute the famous corps of gag men who kept the comedian knee-deep in jokes.

Compiled from Bob's newsletter "Funnyside Up" published in 2000. This is a yuck and chuckle-filled stroll down memory lane to a time before the Bush administration had inflicted its damage -- a time before the search for WMDs and Osama bin Laden. See what we were laughing at back then, who was in the news and who had yet to enter rehab -- which NFL stars had yet to do time in the Gray Bar Hotel.
