Bozo

Adam Bernstein

Had a blast yesterday piecing together the life of Eddie "Bozo" Miller, who ate his way into the record books.

His son-in-law insisted Miller was truthful in everything but his age, which the hometown paper in Oakland incorrectly reported as 99. And typical for the mischievious Miller, he lied in the counterintuitive direction.

Miller is the sort of fellow whose life of crazy anecdotes are almost too good to check. One story I skipped but will repeat here is the time he sent a pregnant woman to the home a newly married male friend. When the man's wife answered, the pregnant woman was to ask with great urgency, "May I please speak to your husband?"
