A Lesson In Sign Language From Joan Rivers

| Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TrueSilly!Joan Rivers

OMG!

This has to be one of our favorite Joan Rivers moments of all time!

Check out the comedienne, alongside daughter Melissa, appearing on The View this morning, and teaching all of us at home some of her favorite new words to say using sign language, now that she has a professional signer at her stand-up shows for the hearing impaired (above)!

LOLz!

All the more reason she is still one of the biggest badasses in Hollywood!

In the immortal words of the MileyBird…she just can't be tamed! Ha!

Keep up the HIGHlarity, gurl!

    "Comedienne" is now considered a sexist term, much like actress or waitress. Get with the new century, Perez. Please, now it is just comedian.

    Babs just shat her depends!

    What is she… a hundred? Hundred fifty?

    "hearing impaired"….REALLY Perez???? For someone who cries offense to every non-PC thing that is said, you should really get with the effing program. That is SOOOOO offensive to the deaf/Deaf community. The are Deaf and/or Hard-of-Hearing. Welcome to 2011.

    Re: COL Kurtz – As a female, I'd be extremely offended if I was grouped with another gender when there is a correct term out there that applies to my gender specifically for that title (comedienne). YOU are the one that needs to get with the times, sir.

    Re: nonyabzwx

    nonyabzwx is right. It is unacceptable to use "hearing impaired." The proper term is deaf and/or hard of hearing. Come on Perez…

    She's the greatest

    You've said "hearing impaired" in other posts and it's incredibly offensive. "Hearing impaired" implies that there's something wrong with the person, as if they're not complete without being able to hear. Where as "Deaf" (with a capital D) signifies their involvement within the Deaf community, as well as their pride to be an ASL user. It's also acceptable to use the term "hard of hearing", but only for those who have hearing loss but do NOT consider themselves part of the Deaf community.

    Just to reiterate previous comments, the proper term is deaf and/or hard-of-hearing. As a sign language interpreter and a member of the deaf community, it is infuriating to see "celebrities" make a mockery of the community and language. And for the record, Joan Rivers just made a jackass of herself–that is nowhere near the sign for orgasm. She did a great job at grabbing her crotch and looking like an idiot though!

    Joan may be 78, but she is STILL one of the edgiest comedians around! The woman's got balls.. and to all you haters out there, stop confusing Joan's comedy with her real-life personality. It's an ACT! She's a COMEDIAN! The woman's got balls and I love her!
