That’s the COSTCO we shop at.

And Joan, the First Amendment does not state...

“And you shall have to purchase every book published, especially the ones by Joan Rivers.”

Or is there an addendum I’m not privy to?

Anything to get some attention.
Go away, you plastic-faced clown. Your rancid act is way past its expiration date.

The expression ‘publicity stunt’ seems to have dropped out of the language, but that’s what this is.

Let's play Karnak the Munificent...

The answer:

The one on the left.

The Question:

Which one has had less work?

Joan was always a loud mouth.  And I mean loud to the tenth.

Carson use to have her on as his substitute.

I often wondered if he had her on, to convince the powers at NBC that that was what they'd get if they ever grew weary of him.

I thought she was a no-talent hack then.

This woman is insane.

And very business savvy. She is a multi-multi-millionaire and she did it all on her own. I like that she stays out of politics. This thing today is interesting. Why shouldn’t she boycott a place that is not selling her book. She will get a ton of pablicity and sell more book. Insane maybe, but very very intelligent.

This is why the late Johnny Carson failed to invite her to appear on his retirement show.

He knew a psycho bytch when he saw one.

That book won’t sell itself. I guess she couldn’t afford a rent-a-mob.

How far the mighty have fallen

Mob is not her style. She did this all on her own. There must be a road or bridge nearby.......

She is a multi-multi-millionaire

********

That’s right, she is, but I guess that just isn’t enough because she seems to need more. When is ENOUGH enough for these people. Facelifts, plumped lips and botox don’t cost that much if you’re as rich as she is.

She is a multi millionaire and she still worries she won’t sell enough books. Please!!! She’s greedy and arrogant.

If you ever watched any of Fashion Police, you would see she does get a little political. Against the right, of course. But, she is so obnoxious, I cannot bear her for more than a moment. Before anyone asks, I sometimes watch just to see what crazy outfits get shown.

Pity she wasnt in NYC. You have a First Amendment right to protest, but pull out a bullhorn without a permit and you’ll get arrested.

Her skin is sucked so tight , it squeezes blood flow to her noddle.

She can always paste the book to her forehead on her next QVC visit.

I read somewhere on FR that Cosco is donating heavily to Obama’s reelection ; am I wrong?

Curious about where President Obama’s private Tuesday night fundraiser is going to be held? Big Democratic donor and recently retired Costco CEO James Sinegal is hosting it at his Hunts Point home where Obama will be meeting with 30 business leaders.

Yes, you're right.  This nincompoop is supporting him.
