It was an unusually dark moment in the vanilla-as-Puddin’-Pops ceremony known as the Emmy’s Awards when a certain “Dr. Bill Cosby” was crisply announced as the next presenter.

Turned out it was a bit of particularly ballsy trolling on behalf of host Jimmy Kimmel, who quipped, “Don’t worry, he’s not really here. I just wanted to see what you guys would do.”

The audience went ashen and gaspy. A certain Tina Fey attempted to quell her own rapidly melting face as she boggled at the announcement, quickly recovering when she realized it was a joke.
Take a look here:
Twitter quickly seized on the moment with a vice grip and has yet to release its grasp:
Announcer: Please welcome Dr. Bill Cosby!

Confusing “my sh!t don’t stink” rich, privileged white liberals in Hollywood is always good for a laugh.
I don’t like Tina Fey. What has she ever done for the gay rights cause? I can’t think of one thing.
@Brian: Something tells me that thinking is not your forte.
@Brian: hey Brian— who DO you like?
Meanwhile Brock Turner 0 outrage. Go suck one, Hollywood. Actually make it two.
Whomever thought of that bit is BRILLIANT!
When I first saw the broadcast, I wondered, “What the hell?” and thought it would be like Ann Coulter at Rob Lowe’s Roast.
