Just perused over to Amazon to check out something that was mentioned over on Camworld, Amazon's Gold Box. Took a look at the "Movers and Shakers", and for some reason sales of Bill Cosby's Wonderfulness album was up 29,000%. I have to say, it's one of my favorites. I love Bill Cosby records, listened to them fanatically as a kid. I used to go to sleep to them every night, and I still can recite many of the routines by heart. It's odd that it went up that much in so short a time, as did To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With and Bill Cosby Is A Very Funny Fellow. Right!, both of which were up, respectively 13,000% and 8000%.
Interesting note: I went to camp one year and made friends with another camper who also loved Bill Cosby. We left camp, and never wrote. We lived in different cities, he in Chicago, I in Detroit. But several years later, we both ended up going to Washington University in St. Louis, where we met each other on the first day we were there. It's interesting how you live your life, and the same people show up. Some call it fate or karma -- I say it's because people who like similar things tend to go similar directions and do similar things. Call it the gravity of personalities.
Or just say Bill Cosby is a funny fellow.Posted by Ted Stevko at June 17, 2002 12:24 AM
