Joan Rivers

Costco Won't Sell My Book!

6/1/2012 11:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_joan_rivers_video_tmz_5Joan Rivers' new book is set to hit stores next week, but you won't find it at your local Costco ... because Joan claims the bulk retailer has cancelled its order because Joan refused to remove a few raunchy jokes on the back cover. 

Joan called in to TMZ this AM in the middle of the morning meeting and explained how Costco objected to 2 fake testimonials:

-- Wilt Chamberlain: "Even if I were alive I wouldn't f**k her."
-- Marie Antoinette: "I don't like her. Let her eat s**t."

Costco had neither a comment nor a sense of humor.

You liberals think you just get to trash our society with your "anything goes" routine. Well, just wait, things are going to swing back the other way hard... and then you won't be so smug and self-righteous.

There's a problem here    

Anytime I can see Joan Rivers I will stay on that channel to watch. Her face is mesmerizing. Even her lips barely move. I find it fascinating. Having said that, her persona is obnoxious but she's a rather interesting person. Her face is amazing though, and not in a good way.

She can barely speak! What makes her believe she can write!

It's not that Costco doesn't have a sense of humor -- it's that they potentially have small children in the store. How would you guys like your seven year old reading jokes like that and then repeating them to their teachers? Yeah, parents will love that.

Her Decadent mind and life-style is not worth reading about---She has been a PIG her whole life long-- Her filthy mind and thoughts are what made her rich and famous- Her mind is Uglier than her Face, if that is possible!!! She should have been a RABBI- The Jews must be really proud of her!!!

Joan's wrong about Wilt -


He'd have done her in a second.

Well, we at least know one Crowded House member who won't have to worry about "Dreaming It's Over" in regard to Joan's career. I also know a Beastie Boy who will not be "Making Noise" about this book. GD I am such a dick and will go to hell...one day.
