As if we even need to say it: we still love ya, Lucy!

All these years later, we still find ourselves chuckling, thinking about any number of hijinx Lucille Ball got herself into on her hit series, I Love Lucy. And so we're happy to raise a glass of freshly stomped wine to Miss Ball on what would have been her 100th birthday.

We can't think of anyone who deserves it more!

Let's run through the numbers real quick: Lucille was born 100 years ago today, August 6, 1911.

New episodes of her hit series, I Love Lucy, haven't been made in over 50 years but the comedy still finds a spot on-air for each generation to giggle along with—as it should, there are nearly 200 episodes of the show—and that's not counting any spin-offs and other sitcoms that the Queen of TV starred in until her death on April 26, 1989.

And then there's everything Lucille was that can't be captured in digits: mostly, the laughter.

Whether she was trying to hawk inedible vitamins or having issues wrapping chocolate with her BFF Ethel, Lucille defined what it meant to be a funny lady and paved the way for nearly every comedic chick that came after her.

And though she was often imitated, she could never be replaced.

So take a few minutes and YouTube your favorite I Love Lucy moments and let us know what they were. Today, it's as simple as a stop by Google, since the swanky search engine flaunts a tribute to Lucille and her namesake series.

That's one sweet century.
