Bob Hope Memorialized

| Filed under: Media Minute

bob-hope.jpg

Here's one way to honor someone after death, by placing their image on a postage stamp.

And the United States Postal Service is doing just that.

The Bob Hope stamp design will be revealed on Monday during a ceremony on New York's Ellis Island. The same place where thousands of immigrants like Hope entered the U.S.

Although the English-born Hope was never part of the U.S. armed forces, he did dedicate a lot of his time traveling worldwide to entertain those in service during WWII and throughout Operation Desert Storm.

In fact, in 1997 Hope became the first person ever recognized by the U.S. as an honorary veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Which living person would U like to see on a stamp? Besides Madonna!

    I really don't care who is on a stamp. The postal service is too expensive. I don't send letters and use UPS whenever possible.

    Don't see many 'philately' posts.
    I think the rule is you have to be dead to be on a stamp.

    I think that is just wonderful. As long as they don't put BHO's face on paper currency or a mountain.

    Re: EnoughAlready – haha…no worries…aren't they all stickers now?

    I want Obama to be the sticky part I lick….

    I vote for Amy Winehouse. We could call it the "Tramp Stamp".

    Well, certainly NOT Madonna! WTF has she done for this country? She's sure not anything close to resembling a hero. Give me a break. It's about time Bob Hope got a stamp, though. He truly was a hero, especially for all the times he went abroad to entertain the troops.

    Is that the best they can do? A stamp?!
    .
    An aircraft carrier should have his name on it for what he has done for the troops.

    Who wants to see Madonna's ugly-ass face on a stamp? Didn't they already make a stamp with a bulldog on it?

    Obama stamps would be neat

    How about Perez bent over and Bubba behind him.

    Re: SlickWilley – Oh My God, I was about to write something slick to number 2, but I read this and cracked the hell up. This was the funniest part of my day, thank you.

    A postage stamp?
    They should have stamped on the next bunch of twenty dollars bills!
    At least his value hasn't deflated.

    I was lucky enough to see him live when I was a kid. He was hilarious. Postage stamp of a live person? I guess I'd have to go with Liz Taylor… She IS still alive, right?

    Bob Hope is one of my all-time idols.

    Speaking of stamps, why can't they just have NICE looking stamps?
    I was buying them the other day and even the postal clerk thought all the stamps sucked.
    I got the sunflower design but even that is kinda blah.
    I like when it's a book with several designs like birds or flowers or something.
    If I had to see one more of that liberty bell forever stamp I was going to scream.

    Bob Hope and Charlie Sheen separated at birth!!

    Bob Hope is an Icon. An honorable man. Loved America. There is no way Madonna should be on a stamp. Barack has to prove himself to be honored in any way.

    Actually, I wouldn't like to see Madonna on a stamp. I don't really care much for what is on a stamp, I just use them to mail shit. I am in Canada, so I don't know what you guys have already had on your stamps, but I would choose someone who has made a difference in people's lives like the Dalia Lama or the like…someone who is devoted to mankind, the unsung heroes of the world, I suppose.

    Re: Miss McGillicutty

    Obviously you haven't lived elsewhere, or so it would seem. The postal system in this country is superior to anyone else I have seen. Canada has a wonderful system to get mail to about the right area. It is the unfortunate fact it takes to get a week to get delivered from the time it arrives there. I am only basing this on the greatest gripe I hear from Canadians. Of course if you are a cheap canuck, does it make a difference? (This is sure to really raise the hair on some people's scalp!) My friends in Toronto, Vancouver, and Victoria will probably fall off their chairs laughing when they read this one.
