The old saying goes, watch what you do and say before it comes back to haunt you and in Bill Cosby’s case this is what’s happening.. I’m not going to say that this man is guilty and maybe someone is out to tarnish his image and legacy, but it’s kind of hard to overlook when you have an interview you did with Larry King years ago surface of you explaining to him “LIVE” how he drugged his women before rape..
In the interview clip, which was rebroadcast on Headline News, Cosby is describing a story about “Spanish Fly,” a drug that purportedly makes women “amarous.” The original “story” was part of his stand up act in 1969. Bill Cosby retold it to Larry King in 1991, and that same year his book “Childhood” came out.
Cosby happily describes to CNN anchor Larry King the “powers” of the drug, as transcribed by FiveThirtyEight.com, Via the Grio:
COSBY: Spanish Fly was the thing that all boys from age 11 on up to death — We will still be searching for Spanish Fly.
KING: [laughs] That’s right.
COSBY: And what was the old- The old story was, if you took a little drop — It was on the head of a-
COSBY: -pin! And you put it in a drink-
KING: That’s right. Drop it in her Coca-cola — It don’t matter.
COSBY: It doesn’t make any difference. And the girl would drink it and-
KING: And she’s yours.
COSBY: -‘Hello, America!’
He may have been playing, but I bet he never thought they would dig up the most incriminating evidence….. Sad days…
