Wide, Wide Rivers

Thirty-one years ago, Joan Rivers hosted Saturday Night Live.

She was in her heyday.  She had yet to be exiled from Johnny Carson’s world.  And, perhaps most importantly, she was still funny.  The ‘Deuling Joans’ bit (her going against Joe Piscopo in drag) was hilarious.  And her opening monologue contained a joke that still causes me to laugh uncontrollably.

She complained that football players were dumb, having once been on a date with one when they saw a sign that said “wet floor.”

According to Joan, “He did.”

Think about it.

That was 1983.

And that was funny.

But this is 2014.

And as disgusting as I find TMZ, sometimes its necessary to link to it:

Joan Rivers is scoffing at the 2 women who were held hostage in a Cleveland, Ohio basement  … telling TMZ they shouldn’t complain — “They got to live rent free for more than a decade.”

Joan tells us she WON’T apologize, telling them to lighten up, adding,  “One of them has a book deal.  Neither are in a psych ward.  They’re ok.  I bet you within 3 years one of them will be on Dancing with the Stars.”

At this point I guess my only question is why Edgar didn’t commit suicide sooner.


As to the title?

Do some research on The Fugs.

  1. Never cared for her. She could be funny – but she liked being mean & punching down. She’d fit in well at HuffPo.
