Joan Rivers told abortion jokes on national television in 1967. If that’s not fucking badass, I don’t know what is.
Yes, she said a lot of fucked up and offensive shit over the last 40-some years. She was not perfect and she was definitely problematic.
Her celebrity fashion schtick had gotten really old to me over the last few years, which bothered me because her standup was consistently off the chain. Tell me if you know of any other 81 year-old woman completely un afraid to make anal sex jokes in front of fellow geriatrics.
Joan Rivers worked her ass off to get to where she was, however, and she did not let anyone discourage her from becoming exactly who she wanted to be—plastic surgery included. She was not afraid to be human, to be brutally honest, to say what everyone else is thinking, to be an equal-opportunity offender.
If you haven’t seen A Piece of Work, do so immediately and you’ll understand a little bit better just how much of an incredibly strong, smart and hard-working woman she was.
When I heard she was in the hospital last week, I knew the inevitable was coming soon. I’m just glad we got to have her still in her prime, up to the very end.
I don’t know… I worry people will read this and think someone who knows how to write wrote them.

Fleur finally found a place where my kids can’t reach her. Smart kitty.
If only it were actually that easy…
