TIME has reported that in recently unsealed court documents (obtained by the Associated Press), Bill Cosby “…admitted in 2005 that he secured quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with and that he gave the sedative to at least one woman and other people”. The comments come from a deposition in a sexual-abuse case filed by a former Temple University employee.
As Cosby is currently facing several accusations of sexual misconduct from multiple parties, this revelation has already planted doubt in the minds of many of his defenders…and of course opened the joke floodgates on twitter:

While we at Geek Juice admit this makes Cosby’s denials against his accusers a bit suspect, we won’t just jump to the conclusion that this recent information validates ALL the claims against him (barring further evidence). As comedians however, we’d like to think his quaalude use might explain his descent into unfunniness since 1996…and might be the cause of the bizarre behavior he exhibited in the 2000s (as satirized below).
