More fuel for the "I Hate Carlos Mencia" bonfire. Or "I Hate Ned Holness" bonfire, whatever:
I understand there are only so many jokes and ideas, but this is vintage execution by Cosby. The stuff about raising the kid like a wild dog eating the tree is both insightful and hilariously delivered. The hyped up exaggeration about the school and stadium perfectly sets up the "Hi Mom!" punchline. Mencia goes with a one-note blasé run-through of football jargon. NO! It's a quintessential example of the same joke being done by a lesser comedian. Booooo!
