i'm not sure the whole "do you know who i am?" bit is applicable for retired soap opera harlots.

and a p.s. kudos to her 38 year old 5th husband. i know i aint the only one dreamin' of a sugar mama.

"strip in public" seems to be a little off mark.

Thinking of Joan stripping is so disturbing that I think I'll need a few more drinks. It made me think of a picture in my collection that gave me nightmares. Its so wrong that anyone else should see it.

"The ex-Dynasty soap queen had to remove her hat, sunglasses, jacket and shoes"

That is NOT stripping. Farking drama queen.

HOLY shiat, BEARTOY. I just had to click, and now I'm blind.

BearToy:

The bad news is that you're probably gonna get a little time off for that link

The good news is that there's a whole lot of sports on TV this weekend

After reading this thread, I have a question. Does someone make a soap that's safe for my hippocampus? I really need to know.
 
2004-10-23 02:06:31 AM
Damn BearToy, I knew that link was gonna suck, but damn.

I say Joan is holding up pretty well for a 71 yo. And how dare they make her remove her hat, sunglasses, jacket and shoes? I got basically the same treatment at the airport recently. I must be famous to have been targeted like that.
 
2004-10-23 02:19:48 AM
Holy shiat! I thought that said Joan Rivers! Phew!

Hat, jacket, sunglasses and shoes!

It completely pisses me off when dried-out face-lifted celebs think that the rules don't apply to them. In the last four weeks I've been on 20 flights, and had to remove my jacket and shoes 20 times. If I'd been wearing sunglasses and a hat, I'd have had to remove those too. Was I surprised? No. Did I complain? No. It's a normal part of air travel, and it's only humiliating and embarrassing if you make a total asshat out of yourself by wailing, whining and shouting "do you know who I am?"

If the auld hoor doesn't feel like following the rules, she could always stay the fark at home.

71 year old feet?

ewwwwwwwwwwweeeeeee!
 
2004-10-23 07:08:17 AM
Witnesses say Joan, 71, then flew into a hissy fit as she was hand searched, scowling: Do you know who I am?

Funny, that's exactly how I always imagined her behaving in public. Like Leona Helmsley with a thespian past.
 
2004-10-23 07:12:45 AM
First of all the headline is misleading... She didn't "strip", she did the stuff we all do... jackets, shoes, etc..... Anyway, she wasn't so ashamed here NSFW
 
2004-10-23 07:16:28 AM
also on the serious note, this is just another example of this security stuff... I don't mind this that much, because I've done the security dance, because depending on the airport they choose every certain number passenger or something, and people with laptop bags, etc.... But we really need to..... UN-PC thing coming..... racially profile. I heard someone put this better than I will, but it's not racial profiling, it's searching based on supsect description... Middle Easter/Muslim/Arab, is your general description of what we're looking for... Yeah yeah libs, I know other people can be terrorists too, but this is mainly a fundamental Islam thing.

Not only is that picture highly, highly disturbing, but the truth that we men at some point long into life have that to look forward to--or none at all.
 
2004-10-23 07:22:16 AM
Just curious... what is the farking logic in making somebody remove their sunglasses? To make sure they don't have laser beams for eyes?

I want my 4th amendment back...
 
2004-10-23 07:22:52 AM
I think the words "Do you know who I AM?" should instantaneously trigger a compulsory body cavity search by whichever security agent has the hairiest, most developed forearm.

Go deep.
 
2004-10-23 07:22:54 AM
Angry Joan said she believed she was targeted because of her fame.

Funny, thats what I always say. Too bad they could care less, huh?
 
2004-10-23 07:23:41 AM
HAR HAR! get it??? they're blind because she's OLD.
LMAO!!11 old ladies are ugly and should never evar take their clothes off, even in the shower. lol!! boobies!!!
 
2004-10-23 07:26:22 AM
Uhhh, yeah. They also pat you down...and if you leave the little waiting area to go to the bathroom, they pat you down again when you come back. That was in '99. I can't imagine what it's like now.

She needs to get over herself. She's not famous anymore. The "do you know who I am?" thing doesn't work. We, the poor huddled masses, couldn't care less who you think you are.
 
2004-10-23 07:27:09 AM
That's one helluva way to start my weekend, Beartoy. Her knees are WAAAY to pointy.

2004-10-23 07:27:50 AM
What a crybaby. Hope they search on the way out of England too.

See how shaken up your picture has gotten me? :-)

-No
-Good *hangs up*

Don't make me take off my sunglasses. -Griss
 
2004-10-23 07:36:30 AM
Joan Collins=famous?
No.
Not in a couple of decades at least.
And barely famous then.
I think her and Angie Dickinson should team up.
Both equally irrelevant.
And Beartoy should be taken out and maimed.

/man oh man...
 
2004-10-23 07:37:50 AM
WTF is Joan Collins?
 
2004-10-23 07:41:03 AM
BEARTOY!!
 
2004-10-23 07:43:30 AM
Granted those Brits love their soap operas...

All I'd see there was some old twat wearing a hat and sunglasses indoors. And a big bulky jacket suitable for hiding things. Nothing suspicious about that. Singled out for fame, indeed.

Incidentally, the proper response to "Do you know who I am?" is, and always will be, "Why?"

What a tease you are. You post a link to a hottie like that but don't supply contact details. Hang your head in shame. ;-)
 
2004-10-23 07:47:16 AM
71 ..... and lookin' good.
 
2004-10-23 07:53:00 AM
oh no! You mean she had to go through all the check that other passengers go through?? The drama!

Oh, and...

Great idea! While we're at it, let's round up all the white men in their mid 20s to mid 30s who live on their own since they fit the "general description" of your average serial killer.

/Fark would go awfully quiet....

Great, so you look out for A-rabs because you're looking for Muslims and end you up ignoring, 3 million Angolans, 6 million Burkinabe, 1.2 million Burundians, 8.6 million Cameroonians, 7.4 million Chadians, 38 Million Chinese, 5.3 million Congolese, 201 million Indonesians, 8.8 million Ivorians. 115 million Bangladeshis, 144 million Indians... so far we're up to 538 million non-arab muslims.

Farking brilliant.
 
2004-10-23 07:59:16 AM
Still, I would have hit it back when this was taken in 1872 or something
 
2004-10-23 08:00:07 AM
It's rather tough to be embarassed when you've gotten naked for Playboy, and stripped in just about every film you've ever been in. Fortunately, that all seemed to have stopped in the 80's - she was getting a little ripe.

Maybe she should have indignantly shouted, "Do you know who I was?"
 
2004-10-23 08:01:46 AM

I barfed. Excellent work. You're a bad person. Meanwhile, good-natured people who're genuinely trying to help others are being kidnaped. Infidels Win.

Not sure where you got that I said "only Arab" there equusdc, but I guess without an argument you had to make something up... I specifically said "Middle Eastern/Muslim/Arab"... Meaning all of those things... Infact the part you quoted from my post makes my point... I said ".... maily a fundamental Islam thing.", in reference to terrorism. But again, you're clearly lost, you quote something from me without the word Arab in it, and argue about something that isn't there.

and Bailey Building And Loan, while that is the stereotypical serial killer, I don't think serial killers are a global threat, in the way terrorists are... Not to mention, you like the other guy make something up... I never implied "rounding up" Muslims, I just said they should be the ones being searched at the airport more than anyone else... Or was it a band of white grandmothers that purpotrated 9/11... I can't remember. Your "rounding up" is comparing apples and oranges, when the topic is airport security checks.
 
2004-10-23 08:06:28 AM
OMG, Beartoy:

I shoulda known better, but the temptation was too great. My face is in PAIN after that link. ROFL.
 
2004-10-23 08:06:41 AM
Did she actually have the balls to say that she was being targeted because of her fame?
 
2004-10-23 08:11:37 AM
Props to Joan for being in one of the best episodes of the original Star Trek. Unfortunately it was straight downhill from there. I recall some late night Showtime flick where she stripped to reveal a quite unspectacular chest, but we were so innocent then -- boobies were boobies.

But again, you're clearly lost, you quote something from me without the word Arab in it, and argue about something that isn't there.

How the fark do you concludethat your statement "Middle Eastern/Muslim/Arab" does not include the word "Arab?"

Last I checked Indonesia was an Islamic country known to have MAJOR terrorist cells--and it's not in the Middle East--ditto most of the African countries.

...and you call ME lost?

Yowza.

Jesus Christ BearToy - I'm gonna have to burn my eyes out with red hot pokers now !
 
2004-10-23 08:24:58 AM


It was only later that Airport authorities found out why she was so upset about being makeup scraped and searched..
 
2004-10-23 08:26:41 AM
I think I've diagnosed your problem equusdc, you apparantly can't read... First you accuse me of singling out Arabs, not Muslims in general as I clearly specified... And also included Middle Eastern and Arab in there too... So proved you were wrong there... So desperately now you go on about other Muslim nations that aren't in the Middle East... What's your point? I said Muslims in general and said regarding terrorism "... mainly a fundamental Islam thing" I mention Middle Eastern only because they are more easily identifiable by appearance, but I certainly didn't single out Arabs or Middle Eastern people out of all Muslims who we should be searching harder than random people.

She added: Of course Im in favour of tight security. But to be singled out in front of the entire queue was frankly humiliating.

Translation: I'm in favour of tight airport security as long as they don't single me out. Let them single out the commonfolk instead.

Poor baby. Welcome to life outside your sheltered mansion.
 
2004-10-23 08:42:13 AM
If she would have asked me " Do you know who I am?" I would have said "No but I know who you were".
