   Beach Boys (24 July 1967): 
   "At threescore and five 
    I'm very much alive 
    I've still got the jive
    to survive with the Heroes and Villains."

MathBabbler didn't think anything about it, but the Wikipedia entry for the number 65 reminded him that 65 is a popular retirement age.

Update::2009.08.25

MathBabbler learned that on 9 August 2009, Smokey Bear turned 65 years of age.

The MBNA (MathBabbler Number Analyst) had lots of functionality added to it since the time this nBAB was created on 10 August 2008, so MBNA output has been re-inserted.
