Proving there's no stunt queen like a meemaw stunt queen, New York Times bestselling author (oh, and gaydored legendary comedian) Joan Rivers was escorted by police out of a California Costco. Joan dusted off her Depression-era "marital aid" handcuffs and locked herself to a shopping cart in protest of Costco's banning of her book I Hate Everybody ... Starting With Me.
Joan of course added her patent irreverent comedic stamp to the incident, saying,"Costco, who sells condoms by the pallet, who sells Paula Deen books and - which is not good for their customers' health - they decided to ban my book," the 79-year-old Rivers said. "This is a First Amendment violation. You're banning a book because it says a funny quote by Marie Antoinette? Where is this going to lead us to?
"This is a store that sells 300 rolls of toilet paper at the same time, and I say any customer that buys 300 rolls of toilet paper deserves a funny book to sit on the toilet and read."
