Ludwig von Mises Stars in Vegas

The long life of the great economist Ludwig von Mises became a small bit in a very funny Las Vegas comedy routine by Alan King. (Via Bob Murphy):

BTW, at a very early age I realized that economists and comedians live very long lives (Mises 92, F.A. Hayek 93, Milton Friedman 94) (George Burns 100, Bob Hope 100, Henny Youngman 92), since I'm not very funny, I became an economist.

BTW2, Murphy mentions that King mispronounces Mises name, but does not give you the correct pronunciation. Here at EPJ we complete the story, it's pronounced ˈluːtvɪç fɔn ˈmiːzəs.
