Cosby sweaters!

cosby sweaters

Did you know people still wear these? I thought they had all been retired to thrift stores, only to be resurrected for the occasional “bad sweater party,” but the other day while filling my car with gas I saw one of these walking by on an actual human. I poured 3 gallons of gas all over my shoes before I snapped back to reality. Did I really just see that? It’s burned into my memory like that famous photo of Big Foot casually walking through the woods, only this Sasquatch looked like he had been barfed on by a unicorn.

Speaking of barfing up a Cosby Sweater, check out #1.

Anyhoo… How is it possible that a living, breathing human with eyes could see one of these monstrosities and think, “Oh yeah. I need a sweater that looks like it’s made form the tears of 1000 clowns.” The bigger mystery is who invented this style of sweater? Wait, and even bigger question is why are they still being produced?

I bet if you put that douchebag Guy Fieri in a giant blender the end result would look remarkably like a Cosby Sweater.

    Oooof. I hadn’t seen such a sight since watching the Cosby Show, way back when, when I was a little children… I honestly cannot thank you for sharing, not this time, Listy.

    Did Bill Cosby also wear them on “Picture Page”? My younger cousin watched that shit with the beeping pen and all that stupid bullshit. Bullshit, I say. BULLSHIT!

    OK, so I had to investigate:

    He’s got some terrible, but not as bad as the sweater, sweatshirt with an iron-on picture of himself on it…

    He also must’ve been high on the marker fumes.

    I met Bill Cosby at a Temple Basketball game. I told him I loved picture pages….he told me to leave him alone.
    It was special

    Hey. I think these Cosby-like sweaters are quiet nice, so I would like to have any information about these sweaters. What are they called? Where can you buy them?
