    I kid you not – this is my yoga teacher. I studied with him for about five years. It was a shock to walk into class with him for the first time – you don’t really expect your yoga teacher to be a 70-year-old black man who does, even in real life, bear a striking resemblance to Bill Cosby. But he is amazing. (The people in his photo are his wife, kids and grandkid, btw.)

    Would you like a pudding pop?

  3. logan says:

    nobody noticed winona ryder in the middle?

  4. Amanda says:

    Doesn’t anyone else wonder why in the world this group would be in a group photo together? I mean… Is this more, or less awkward if it was a family photo as opposed to a … exercise club with one really young member?

    Gimme five. That’s right. Up high….

  6. Allison says:

    When I posted the link to this on Facebook, a few of my friends noted the Bill Cosby resemblance.

    This photo is awesome, just like the opening credits always were for The Cosby Show!

    The opening dance of “The Cosby Show”, BEFORE a rethinking of the show’s format!

    To look at these comments, one would think that there is nothing unusual about this photo apart from the gentleman’s resemblance to Bill Cosby.

    • M says:

      Well, that and I’m glad the little girl is looking to her left & not straight ahead. The 70s & 80s were a strange time. I remember things like this going on during Mousercise on the Disney channel in the 80s.

    • JenW says:

      This is the problem with screening comments. Everybody ends up saying the same thing because nobody can see what other people have said until the comments are approved.

    • justme says:

      Yep, I was thinking the same thing. For me, the most awkward part of the photo was voiced by M, above, but I couldn’t think of how to put it in moderator – friendly terms so it would actually show up on the site. Let’s just say the short – short period could be very……erm……revealing.

      I’m seeing a sit-com where Bill Cosby plays the patriarch of a family of yoga enthusiasts. The mother is played by Susan Powter and their daughter is played by Lisa Bonet. The son-in-law is Ralph Macchio.

  9. Dave says:

    My first thought, too–COSBY!!!

  10. M says:

    A bunch of squeals about Bill Cosby and no one even mentions Ralph Macchio to the right?

  11. Jackie says:

    The African American Gentleman looks just like a younger Bill Cosby

  12. JenW says:

    I know this is stating the obvious here, but the guy on the left looks a lot like Bill Cosby.

  13. Sarah says:

    Is that Bill Cosby on the left? I guess those Jell-o pudding pops are good for the abs!

  14. Jill says:

    I didn’t know Bill Cosby was so flexible.

  15. Doug says:

    Bill Cosby in his younger, fitter days.

  16. Merv says:

    I never knew Bill Cosby did yoga.

  17. Mark says:

    Young Bill Cosby doing yoga…awesome.

  18. dpittman70 says:

    Bill Cosby?

  19. Pyvsi says:

    When I said I admired Cliff Huxtable’s flexibility as a father, that’s not quite what I meant.

  20. Raymond S says:

    How did Bill Cosby end up with these people?

  21. Dread says:

    Is that Bill Cosby on the left?

  22. Rahvin says:

    Apart from them being superflexible: The guy on the left looks like a fitter version of Bill Cosby…?

  23. TonyT says:

    Is that Bill Cosby on the left?
