Bill Cosby tells us how he really feels about Pudding Pops

Bill Cosby’s take on flibbidy, flobbidy, floobidy, flargedy and flurgidy never came up during my interview with him today about his upcoming Father’s Day shows at the Schuster Center in downtown Dayton.

But I managed to get in more than a few questions about fathers, modern parenthood, statement wrongly attributed to him, comedy and Central State University in Wilberforce.

That said, the legendary comedian, author and activist and I spent nearly 3 minutes on a topic that burns hot in the minds of several of our Facebook friends: does Cosby really, truly like the Jell-O Pudding Pops he famously pushed in the 1970s and 1980s?

I saved the question for last, of course.

Cosby talks about the discontinued frozen treat in the video above and gives this scribe the business and a ‘comedy writing credit’ of sorts.

Pick up a copy of the Dayton Daily News Sunday for our full article on Cosby and his upcoming local show.

Until then enjoy the video above.

The only thing that could make it better would be watching it while eating a homemade pudding pop.
