On Wednesday night's "Why?" Hannibal Buress returned to familiar territory in a sketch lampooning the disgraced legend Bill Cosby and his former host-spot on the show "Kids Say the Darnest Things." Buress' version: "Children Say Things That You Don't Expect Them To Say Sometimes."

Abandoning the whole formula of the classic show -- asking kids super cutesy questions and anticipating their cutesy response -- Buress cut right to the chase, asking each kid one-on-one about rap lyrics, basketball and the point of parental blocks on Netflix.
