Thanks to Kevin for bringing this to my attention.
Legendary comedian cum humorless dick, Bill “Dr. Huxtable” Cosby is at it again, this time in book form. All puns intentional.
From Publishers Weekly:
With his at-times controversial social commentary fresh in the public mind, comedian Bill Cosby teams up with some psychiatrist named Alvin Poussaint to take a hard look at the state of black America, bearer of “more than their share of poverty,” and present ways to overcome the “deep-rooted” challenges of the poor-including crime, lack of education and broken families.
Basically, Cosby serves up a typewritten tongue-lashing, lambasting black America, placing the blame squarely on the shoulders of Hip Hop and the N word.
But is there something going on below the surface? And by surface, I mean right on the front cover? For all his talk of education, you think Cosby would have at least had someone proofread the title. Either that, or he’s trying to tell us that he’s a huge proponent of sticky faces. From the suggestive lack of punctuation to the peter-track footprints, I think all signs point to the later.
That’s right, the title of the book is Come On People. Not- Come On, People- Come On People. You see the difference? It’s amazing what a comma can do.
And you know what? Maybe he’s right. Maybe that’s the answer to all our problems. We should all just whip it out and spray liquid love all over each other. Cook up a tasty batch of Jello brand pudding peace. The world would be a better place.
