Too Many Candles on That Cake?
Feedling frumpy and lumpy and old?
Do Not Despair.
The famous American philosopher, Jack Benny, embraced the secret to the aging process.
“Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
“Gags die, humor doesn’t.”
The famous “Stuck at 39” was a funny running gag that got started the year after Jack Benny celebrated his “first” 39 birthday on his radio show.
Take note, he said it was so much fun, he decided to do the same thing the following year. He said “There’s nothing funny about 40.” Mr.Benny, my idol, would celebrate his 39 birthday 41 times.
Cheer Up, Binkie – age is a many splintered thing.
