Few comics can match the cross-generational appeal of Bill Cosby--and even fewer can top the Jell-O man when it comes to his effortless rapport with the wee ones. First with Fat Albert and Junior Barnes, and later with the little Huxtables, "Cos" has always had a knack for getting kids to say... well, the darndest things. Perhaps he puts it best: "When talking to kids, you've got to pretend that you don't know much--and a few seconds later, you realize you're not pretending."
Who better than Bill Cosby, then, to host Kids Say the Darndest Things, a cute-kid TV show in the spirit of Art Linkletter's House Party. This slim book collects Cosby's (and Linkletter's) most brilliant, wonderful conversations on the program, interspersed with trademark Cosby comic patter. Sections include religion ("Do you know what happened to Adam and Eve?" "They ate the apple and went to hell and their parents went to Los Angeles."); family life ("I want my lunch." "Well, how do you ask for it?" "Like this: I want my lunch."); sex ("As for birth control, I'm against it for humans but for it against insects."); and history ("Who was Paul Revere?" "False."). --Paul Hughes
