See Bill Cosby school Jon Stewart on cursing

Legendary comedian Bill Cosby told Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart what many parents may be thinking: Stop cursing.

Cosby spoke about the audience reaction to the “Stand Up For Heroes” benefit show that he and Stewart did for wounded warriors recently in New York City.

“You were out there, and you used some words,” Cosby said while appearing on Stewart’s show Wednesday, getting laughs from the audience. “And you said” — Cosby then made gibberish noises, mocking Stewart’s cursing without actually saying the words. “And I said to myself, ‘Oh my.’”

That people laugh “so hard” at Stewart’s swearing and cursing shows a change in today’s culture, Cosby said.

“I’m 76 years old,” the comedian said. “What you have to understand, Jonathan, from whenst I cometh, when people cursed, the next thing is somebody was going to hit you. See, now there’s a whole new culture. People curse and they laugh. But for me, when you were cursing, I started crying.”

Stewart was taken aback by the comment.

“I wasn’t cursing,” he said. “It was Yiddish.”
