Dear Diary,

On the “Amos ‘N Andy” show today, Andy was telling Amos about meeting Bob Hope yesterday. Andy said, “Every time Hope said something funny, I’d top him and say something funnier.” The the Kingfish came in and told Amos how Andy just stood there with his mouth hanging open and kept calling Bob “Mr. Pope,” because he was so excited he didn’t know what he was saying. That sounds just a little more like the truth, as Amos himself remarked. I wish they would do that sort of thing more often. I imagine Amos and Andy will be Bob’s guest next fall.
