Lampanelli:

Giraldo Would've Loved Gottfried Burn

10/4/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli didn't think Gilbert Gottfried was out of line when he cracked a cremation joke about Greg Giraldo just hours after his death -- in fact, Lisa thinks Greg would've appreciated it.

Lisa -- who Greg endearingly referred to as a "Circus bear in a pant suit" -- spent lots of time exchanging insults with Giraldo at Roasts throughout the years ... and this weekend in NY, she told us, "You don't do the Roasts like we do without having a sense of humor about it."

When we asked about Gilbert's self-described emotional issues -- Lisa told us, "That's every comic ... we make jokes about the stuff we're about to cry about."

Check out the clip -- it's pretty good.

People say that they dont want people to be sad after they died but lets be serious......I believe in God...and in the bible it says that a dead lion is nothing compared to a dog who is alive...it also says that at the apocalypse God will bring the heavens to the earth and raise the dead...and THATS when he will decide who goes to hell or heaven...until then, they sit there in this abysmal pit of darkness getting there faith tested...[how long will they last before they start doubting God as they sit there in the dark] ...so I think that when ur dead and ur sitting there in this abysmal pit of darkness and ur watching everyone on the earth u long for someone to show how much you've meant to them......because when YOU die, your basically saying goodbye to everyone you know...so in a sense its like EVERYONE IN THE WORLD has died simultaneously...with my understanding of death, he prolly would have liked people to be more sad about it first, and THEN start doing the comedy thing later

it's true, if you know and appreciate Giraldo comedy he would have loved gilberts joke. Giraldo was all about bustin balls and not being politically correct. He absolutely hated political correctness and would bite someones nose off if they made a big deal about gilberts joke.

Y do he got    

MAY B he thought those were all sweet tarts when he popped all those pills? od oh thats a gasman dead wow now thats funny...he should have made that his stage act maybe he would have sold out.DEAD FUNNY? I don`t know maybe not as funny as being fat and alive or a loser and alive..life an`t a standup act funny or not.I read somewhere he was broke and had two million in taxes so he made his OD look like a accident to get his family some cash.Loved his car yaa that funny a whole family got hit by a train that GREG was driving ha ha ha.I think you have to be alive to be funny and death isn`t funny unless your a cartoon.

Had the joke been told to Greg he would have laughed his ass off. He'd use it. The joke works and is by no means a slap at Greg. G.G hit it.

Who cares what he would have thought, have some respect for the kids he left behind. I am sure those grieving his loss don't see anything funny about it.
