Joan Rivers, RIP.

So Joan Rivers passed away the other day and 2014 has therefore brought us yet another notable loss from the world of entertainment alone.

Since her death I’ve obviously seen a lot of obituaries and articles about her, but one thing stood out quite a bit among all the chatter. I spotted an article on The Huffington Post (You can read it here) from a writer who helped Rivers write a speech back at the end of the 1980’s.

Now that all seems pretty unremarkable, except for when the writer last met Rivers at an event and spoke to the comedy star. The writer asked:

“How do we treat the little people Joan?”

Her answer?

“Why, We Treat Them Better. We Only S–t on People at Our Level or Higher.”

Genius. Have a read at the article, it’s actually pretty heart-warming. RIP.
