It's just Joan Rivers being herself. I had heard her say this joke & it didn't bother me. In fact, I made a similar joke only today when on our local news it was reported that an Ultra-Orthodox Jewish couple were on their way to give birth & a BMW hit them, killing them & the baby was delivered alive.
I found it darkly humorous that they were killed by a German car.
Dear Abby: Would you please settle a friendly debate between me and my friends? Is it ever appropriate to use your cellphone to update social media or send a text message during a church sermon, or is it still considered a rude act? — Old-Fashioned in Kentucky
Dear Old-Fashioned: It’s still considered rude. In a house of worship, we are supposed to be thinking about more important things than our social schedule, our Facebook page or who tweeted us.
Dear Abby: My colleagues and I are concerned about a close friend and co-worker. He insists that it’s not against the law to read books while driving. He says he does it only on highways because everyone is going the same speed and direction and you only need peripheral vision.
In every other aspect of his life, this man follows the rules. Is it true that this is legal? — Concerned in Ohio
Dear Concerned: Of course not! A distracted driver who is reading books is at least as dangerous as one who is eating, texting, applying makeup, shaving or talking on a cellphone.
