FINEBAUM: THE BEAR LIKED REDD FOXX

New, 4 comments

In one of those things we may only find interesting, it turns out that Bear Bryant thought Redd Foxx was the funniest man on the planet. We're happy to find out that the Bear, along with us, might have found Foxx's "Fuck you, bitch" said through coke bottle lenses to Della Reese in Harlem Nights to be one of the best timed profanities ever spoken in film. (Seriously--it ranks right up there with John Cusack in Gross Pointe Blank going "Oh, that guy...he's an assssssshole." There's a whole dissertation on the elegant use of profanity just waiting to be written, and Redd Foxx could occupy a whole wing by himself.)

Made The Bear laugh, and told Della Reese to fuck off. Genius.
