Bill Cosby has had a difficult time trying to stay out of the public eye in recent weeks, and as more and more women come forward to accuse the TV icon with sexual assault and rape, the Internet has dredged up audio from his 1969 album, It’s True! It’s True!, on which the comedian jokes about having a childhood curiosity with the drug Spanish fly, Mediaite reports. It’s unfortunate timing, seeing as how many of Cosby’s alleged victims say the now 77-year-old star drugged them before assaulting them.
In the clip, highlighted by the Village Voice’s Alan Scherstuhl, Cosby talks about how his early teenage years were filled with rumors about the drug, which was said to make women fall for you if you slipped it in their drinks. He later riffs on traveling to Spain to try to find the source of this drug. Cosby quips in the routine: “Go to a party, see five girls standing alone,” and then, “Boy if I had a whole jug of Spanish fly, I’d light that corner up over there, ha ha ha.”
