Good for her that plastic floats.

Did they not research her 40+ years of comedy history before hiring her?
 
2014-05-05 09:07:50 AM  
Joan Rivers has been trolling since probably before subby was born.

too bad they didn't wait until she was on the ship and then threw her overboard
 
2014-05-05 09:17:15 AM  
Wait, did she double down on this schtick?
 
2014-05-05 09:18:28 AM  
How does anyone manage to get butthurt over or care about Joan Rivers?  Like at all?  It's Joan Rivers.  You know what you're going to get if you hire her, and as for this weird antipathy that people have managed to develop about her lately...seriously?   Life is way too short to spend it disliking someone whose whole schtick is being brassy, catty, and abrasive.

There is a 50/50 shot that she did die and what parades around really just an plastic auto-joke bot at this point.

She ran out of funny a looooooooooooooong time ago.

Now she's plastic, not funny, crude, lame, a moving mummy that needs to go towards tasteless to make the news.

I was never a fan, but now... she needs to go back to that closet that she emerges from every so often, 'cause when she does, it's always crap like this.

For the same reason people get pissed when Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a "slut". Sh'e doing this shiat in front of a national audience, she is on a farking TV show that some people somewhere obviously watch, it's not like she said this to some reporter on the corner.

No.  It's the insects inside her skin making her move around and talk.  Thousands and thousands of insects.

As I said in a prior Rivers thread:
Joan Rivers has been dead for twenty years, but her soul is locked inside the slowly decaying vessel by a twisted confluence of dark magic, self importance, and ignorance.
We must educate the Rivers-Lich so her soul - and humanity - can be free.
 
2014-05-05 09:44:28 AM  
She later reportedly said, "One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They're OK . . . I bet you within three years, one of them will be on 'Dancing With the Stars.' "

OK, this is farked up, but I am gonna laugh my ass off if one of the two is really on Dancing With the Stars, especially if it is within 3 years...
 
2014-05-05 09:46:12 AM  
I don't know if there's more to it because I don't want to click on that crappy website, but it seems like another case of the People Looking to be Offended Brigade finding their new target of the week. I'm not a fan of Joan Rivers, but if idiots keep going after comedians every time they say something that might cross a line, comedy is going to be a whole lot shiattier.

Hopefully Rivers will be alive to comment on it again.

Always doubles down but never actually made it onboard.

I think she got the 'New and Improved' anti-aging compound they gave Dick Clark. I foresee this particular Dalek being around until my daughter has grandkids...

I don't know... I am not aware of any of these types of "kidnap victim celebrities" doing "reality" TV like this.... they'll do interviews for Barbara Walters or such, but, I'm not aware of anyone like Elizabeth Smart or Jaycee Dugard doing a reality competition show, but, maybe someone who watches more of that will be able to point one out.

Which Sister of Eluria is she?

You know, cruise line, you probably should do a bit if due diligence when booking an act.
Joan is the Lenny Bruce of her time.

And shiat, by Joan Rivers standards that's pretty tame.  She has a long history of very hard/offensive/obscene comedy.

why do they hate her first amendment rights?

I could make a joke like "Joan Rivers is such a coont that Edgar Rosenberg took the easy way out", but I guarantee that she was the first person to make that joke.

The cruise goes into International Waters.  Goodbye first amendment, hello casinos!
 
2014-05-05 11:18:45 AM  
Walking the fuzzy line between "funny" and "offensive", and then stomping down really hard with both feet on the "offensive" side is what she does. It's how she stays in the public eye.

It's not what I find entertaining, but she's ridden that strategy for decades, and it hasn't failed her yet.
 
2014-05-05 11:24:07 AM  
That's some good material.

Private corporations are not bound by the free speech clause in the First Amendment.  They can write contracts that limit your speech to a fairly high degree.

I would doubt that, but it's still not a valid comparison. If it were more like "My quarters were as cramped as when my daughter Melissa was raped and tortured by that Mexican" then she would put her money where her plastic mouth is.

Dinjiin: ManateeGag: why do they hate her first amendment rights?

But sadly, no-one can write a contract that will grant you the power to detect sarcasm.

/A second Faily Award goes to subby who managed to completely cock up describing what actually happened. Rivers complained about the size of her daughter's guest room, not the NCL room.
//She did make an cruise room crack *after* she was disinvited from the cruise.
 
2014-05-05 11:54:07 AM  
"Cheeky kidnapping joke"

Is that similar to a saucy holocaust joke?

"Lately"? Try looking back some decades. It's nothing new.

What's funny is farkers with such reverence for vaguely amusing comedians who as offensive or more.

She compared her daughter's tiny apartment to it too. Should be a continuous drinking game, take a shot when you need to forget Joan Rivers exits

You, apparently, don't have a much of a laugh filter then.   It might be a slightly noteworthy event being that it had been predicted by Joan River, though generally devoid of humor.
 
2014-05-05 01:05:36 PM  
I wonder how many dicks she had to suck to get to where she is today...
 
2014-05-05 01:06:53 PM  
I thought her double-down followup was funnier than the original joke.

Lenny has been dead for nearly 50 years, and even six feet under, he's still funnier than Joan has ever been.

2014-05-05 01:48:39 PM  
Don't these idiots listen to the comics they hire? She told a joke, she gets paid for that. Get over it!
 
2014-05-05 01:50:24 PM  
I am far more politically incorrect than most. I once made a joke about my father in law passing.

What joan did crosses the line.  big time.
 
2014-05-05 02:07:52 PM  
Headline fail: She got dropped from the cruise becasue she compared her daughters guest room to the basment. It wasn't until after they dropped her she then made a reference to the cabin.

/just saying.
 
2014-05-05 02:11:38 PM  
Dead giveaway.
 
2014-05-05 02:27:42 PM  
She's a comedian. Relax.
