The Celebrity Meme

Anastasia has tagged me for the Celebrity Meme.

If you could spend 24 hours with a celebrity:

1. Who would s/he be?
2. Where would you expect him/her to bring you?
3. Where would you bring him/her?
4. What would you like to do with him/her?
5. What’s the one thing you’d been always wanting to ask the celebrity?
6. If s/he didn’t treat you well, would s/he be your favorite celebrity?
7. What would you give to him/her as a gift before saying goodbye so s/he’d remember you?
8. Tag 3 people.

I pick Bill Cosby. He's my all-time favorite comedian. He would take me to a comedy club where he was doing an act, and afterwards we'd go for coffee or something. All I want to do is hear his material. He leaves me in stitches and his humor is so warm-spirited, not the mean stuff you see from some "comedians." I would ask him: where do you come up with the material? Where do you get your ideas? How do you take a good story and make it better? I might even ask if he *really* likes Coke and Jello pudding. I can't imagine that he wouldn't be kind, but I suppose it would change my view of him if he weren't. As a gift ... well if he really liked Coke and Jello pudding, that would settle the "gift" part of the meme; but odds are he's tired of those by now and maybe a copy of one of his humor collections signed by me and my kids with "Thank you" on it.

So Dr. P, Mark, Jeff, and Phil, feel free to play along if you want to: you're tagged.

I accept.

I love Cosby's Noah-and-God routine.

I love his "We never pray until it's too late" shtick, which may be a part of the Noah-and-God routine; I don't remember for sure.

"We never pray when we oughta. We wait until it's too late. We wait until we're on the railroad track and the train is coming right at us before we say, "Oh, my God!" And God no more than has time to say, "Whut?" ...

Great choice! He's my all time favorite comedian too. Actually, I'm trying to figure out a way to include his "Noah" routine somewhre in a sermon series I'm doing on the life of Noah. :-)

I played his "Noah and the Ark" routine for my Sunday school class one day last year, kind of an end-of-year party.

"What's a cubit?"

And Owl - glad to see you're still around, & praying for you and your decision.

Take care & God bless
