BILL COSBY, R.I.P.

How he did NOT die: Rumors that the original Fat Albert died have popped up four times according to an irate Cosby, the most recent being this past August. He called in to Larry King Live to debunk the rumors himself, saying that he wanted friends of whoever was starting the rumor to tell them to stop, because it’s not funny anymore. And while we agree that four times is sort of overkill, well, kids do say the darndest things.
