Have sixty-seven minutes and five-seconds to spare? Terrrrrific news! That means you can listen to Howard Stern’s entire tribute to the late Joan Rivers on his show yesterday.
As you may know, Stern and Rivers were great friends. So much so, that over the weekend he gave a very Joan Rivers-esque eulogy at her funeral. There’s no video of it to be found on YouTube, but Margret Cho posted an excerpt on her blog.
In the morose silence Howard Stern said, “Joan Rivers had a dry pussy.”
At first, the words just hung there, as no one knew exactly what to do. Of course I started laughing hysterically, and everyone else, remembering who we were there to honor, followed suit. Howard Stern actually choked back tears as he continued – “Joan’s pussy was so dry it was like a sponge – so that when she got in the bathtub – whooooosh – all the water would get absorbed in there! Joan said that if Whitney Houston had as dry a pussy as Joan’s, she would still be alive today…”
Seems like the beginnings of a very fitting sendoff.
