Bill Cosby has been noticeably silent lately about the decades-old and new rape and sexual assault allegations against him, and now things look even worse after someone found a comedy segment he did where he jokes about drugging women’s drinks.
Alan Scherstuhl dug up the stand-up segment Cosby did in 1969, when the comedian released his ninth comedy album, “It’s True! It’s True!” In his routine, Cosby makes jokes about drugging girls’ drinks, which is what most of his accusers alleged he did to them before sexually assaulting them or raping them, with “Spanish fly.”
Spanish fly is a species of beetle that has aphrodisiac qualities when taken, and is used as a sexual stimulant and considered a poison.
From the segment:
“It always happens when you’re 13, only when you’re 13 on up ’til when you get married. Guys standing around and talking about Spanish fly.
‘You know anything about Spanish fly?’ ‘No, tell me about it.’
‘Well there’s this girl Crazy Mary, you put some in her drink man, she, ‘Haaaaaaaaaaaaah.’
‘Oh yeah, that’s really groovy man, Spanish fly is groovy, yeah.’
From then on, any time you see a girl: ‘Wish I had some Spanish fly.’
Go to a party see five girls standing alone: ‘Boy if I had a whole jug of Spanish fly, I’d light that corner up over there. HAAAAAAH.'”
As of Nov. 16, 14 women have accused Cosby of abuse.
