I'm so glad to finally see this on iTunes (I've looked many times in the past) so that I can share this with my children.

Classic Bill Cosby you cannot help but enjoy this fine artist and comedian. One of my best iTunes purchases. A keeper for sure.

With no vulgar language, you can still share this with your kids and evryone gets a good laugh!
