Brain Damage (starring Bill Cosby and God)

Bill Cosby HimselfIf you tell somebody not to do something, and then they do it anyway, and then you ask them why, and they say “I don’t know,” that’s brain damage.

Let me give you an example.

GOD: Don’t.

BILL COSBY: Don’t what?

GOD: Rape the women.

BILL COSBY: Well, where are they?

GOD: They’re over there. But don’t rape them.

And then God steps out of the room for a moment. We don’t know where he went. The Bible doesn’t say. But you know how when you turn your back on your kids for just a moment…

So anyway, God turns around, and Bill Cosby’s raping the women, and now God’s wondering why He didn’t just stop after making the elephants.

GOD: Didn’t I just tell you?


GOD: Well, why did you do it?

BILL COSBY: I don’t know!

Well, that’s brain damage!
