Taxi KAB fashions

Bill Cosby is probably one of the most famous comedians known to man. Okay, maybe not to man, but definitely to our parents’ generation. But this post isn’t about Bill Cosby being a good comedian, it’s about his sweaters. 
I don’t know what it is about hideous, old sweaters with God awful designs, but for some reason, I love them. Not even kidding. 
 It all started with the bad fashion in the 80’s and 90’s, when “The Cosby Show” aired regular, new episodes and Cosby himself was in his prime age. In nearly every episode that I have watched, Cosby is wearing one of these atrocious sweaters. Not that I have a problem with it. 
It soon became in the late 90’s and early 2000’s that these sweaters were known as what they truly are: UGLY. People probably burned these sweaters by the dozens.
I’m not going to lie, I know they could easily strike a person dead with their blinding colors, distasteful patterns and possible smell of moth balls, but there is just something about them. 
By 2010, these sweaters were deemed “cool” again. But not by the fashion industry: by scenesters, hipsters, and grandparents alike. My guess is that these sweaters were deemed awesome because they are simply ridiculous. We even have a day dedicated to these horrible gifts from Heaven called Ugly Sweater Day. 
So the next time you see one of these sweaters on a person, instead of turning up your nose to the terrifying thing on their body, acknowledge the awesomeness which is THE COSBY SWEATER.
