So what’s up with that, Ben’s Chilli Bowl? The infamous sign indicating who eats for free at Ben’s has gone through a few changes over the years. The classic one said that only Ben Cosby eats free was replaced last year with one that said Bill Cosby and the Obama Family. Sometime since the sign (pictured above, click to enlarge) has been changed again to say
WHO EATS FOR FREE AT BEN’S
MICHELLE, MALIA & SASHA OBAMA
NOT PRESIDENT OBAMA
BECAUSE BILL COSBY SAYS SO!!!!
No, we have no idea either. The counter staff working today said they didn’t know what the deal was.
UPDATE: WLDC Alum Brittany points us to this Meet the Press video where Bill Cosby says that President Obama hasn’t earned the free eats at Ben’s yet. Let me point out that he says he doesn’t mind Michelle and her mother eating for free but the sign omits Mrs Robinson (what do you say?) but includes the Obama daughters.
