Good, I always thought he was annoying.

*reads TFA*

Oh.
 
2013-11-20 09:02:05 AM
I saw him on TDS last night. Can't wait to see his new special.
 
2013-11-20 09:11:54 AM
I met him.  He's mostly blind now, getting senile, and getting even more annoying, to be honest.  He's like your senile great-uncle who talks about The War constantly - except instead of talking about his unit and other boring-as-hell stories, he does odd comedy bits only he thinks are funny while people laugh politely and pity him.
 
2013-11-20 09:18:23 AM
Were his pants pulled up?

Did he offer you his pudding pop?

I met him at a university track meet in the '84 or '85.  He was watching from the stands, and couple of us went over to talk to him.  He was very cordial, and we discussed value of nutritional eating for performance.

That joke he tells about Larry Holmes not being able to speak correctly makes me laugh every time.

Why is there such hate on Fark for Cosby.

Waldo Pepper: Why is there such hate on Fark for Cosby.


I think because he knocked a girl up and ignored his son forever or something like that.  It's hard to keep up with fark hate sometimes.
 
2013-11-20 11:14:42 AM
I remember a 24 hour deli on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that had a photo of him playing dead next to their beer coolers.  That was in the early 90s so he's been doing that schtick for a while now.

I had no idea there was, nor do I get it.
I saw him do stand-up about ten years ago, and he was still great.

I still hate Bill Cosby because my farking Mortimer the Magic Marker that I waited WEEKS for (as a child, when that was a long time) was just a stupid regular marker with a sticker on it and it didn't make noises when you wrote with it. Farking misleading commercial.
 
2013-11-20 11:20:41 AM
With the bippin' and the boppin' and the sweaters and the telling African American youth to take responsibility for themselves while simultaneously perving on young women while married.  Who want's some jello?

Waldo Pepper: Why is there such hate on Fark for Cosby.


I wish I knew why people were down on Cosby. He's a true original, unpredictable, intelligent guy. He was funny, smart, and talked about morality too. Not that he always lived up to it - who does? But he was out there willing to be a lightning rod, willing to criticize people when it wasn't good for him to do so. Willing to demand things like education and the values of intellectualism, not shrink away from them. A good man.

To all you haters out there laughing about pathetic old people...oh boy. Your are digging your own karmic graves each day. No one WANTS to get old and feeble - it's not a choice. Making fun of the elderly is like making fun of children for being stupid. You work your whole life, you screw up along the way, but do your best. Next thing you know you're in a nursing home, alone, lonely, bored, possibly incontinent. Some 21 year old kid is making fun of you as he or she cleans your room. No one is protecting you. You're simply unable to care for yourself and now the very people who owe their existence, their safety, their way of life to you are talking about you as if you're a stupid moron who CHOSE to have the kidneys give out.

Sorry about the rant. Making fun of the elderly is an especially sore spot for me. And I'm a lifelong Cosby fan.
 
2013-11-20 11:26:43 AM
Saw him a couple years ago in Fort Wayne, I really enjoyed. Took my old man for his birthday. We grew up listening to Cos, and I'll tell you, he had all fresh material.
 
2013-11-20 11:30:44 AM

Waldo Pepper: Why is there such hate on Fark for Cosby.


I think because he publicly said African Americans should have jobs and not bastards.

People didn't like him much after that.

"Why I asked WHY the poor had no food they called me a communist."

So the fact that his son was gunned down around the same time these revelations came out was not enough to satisfy you? You have to go the whole "hypocrite" route?

That's sad. You're sad. Eat a salad. Seriously.

Well, you are spozed to hate them if they're young and rich, or if they're old and rich, or if they're in politics and conservative, or liberal, or rich. And hate them if they're cool, or lame, or successful, or unsuccessful, or straight, or gay, or transsexual, or got caught doing drugs, or speeding while drunk, or texting while driving, or had sex with a dog or kid or old person.

He made a few "take personal responsibility" speeches, so now fark's moon bats hate him.


// but it's not racist when they disagree with a man who happens to be black. It's not like the DNC has a history of that.

Isn't that what Fallon does every night on his show

Mizelled: Bill Cosby Himself is still one of my favorite things ever.


Just saw a good bit of that last weekend when the cable channel was promoting his new special.  I still, to this day, laugh myself breathless at the whole parenting bit he does...because it's 99.998% true.

"My father established our relationship when I was seven years old. He looked at me and said, "You know, I brought you in this world, and I can take you out. And it don't make no difference to me, I'll make another one look just like you."

Took my son to see him earlier this year.  Was very funny.

Just watched it on Hulu.

Cosby played Fallon and the Roots like a bunch of puppets.  Don't get in that man's way.

I have you Farkied from 10/9/2013 as still trotting out that stale "You didn't build that" line, so it's not a huge surprise to see you in here using the phrase "moon bats."

"Fresh & insightful" isn't really your thing.

He was just in town for a show. Didn't hear one "he was great!" from show goers. Just polite "it was nice he came here" talk.

Pretty sure there were 1500 people thinking they REALLY overpaid to see a "legend" grouse...
 
2013-11-20 01:05:13 PM
I watched the video. There's a pretty sad moment there when Fallon is talking about a chalk outline and says "There's been a murder." You can see something change on Cosby's face.

Yes, Cosby was an original. He had a great career. I'm not "down" on him for that. He's just not very funny anymore (IMO). He was in town a week ago and the reviews from the crowd were not good.

Just going through the motions.

TDS had him on. And you dont have to listen to some stupid commentator as you watch the clip there.
