My wife and I watched the new Bill Cosby stand-up special on Comedy Central last night. He looks his age be he's still got it. He has gotten preachy in his older years, but there was none of that in this performance. I highly recommend it.
It reminded me of this classic bit he did decades ago. It went something like this. I'm paraphrasing...
"Until we were old enough to go to school where they called the roll, my brother and I thought our names were Jesus Christ and Dammit. That's all our dad called us. 'Jesus Christ, I told you not to do that!' 'Dammit, what are you doing in bathroom!'
One day I was playing outside in the rain. Dad threw open the front door. 'Dammit, don't you have more sense than to play in the rain? I said, 'Dad, I'm Jesus Christ. Dammit is inside watching TV."
