When I watch this video — from last night’s episode of WE tv’s “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best” — of 78-year-old Joan Rivers and her friend Lynne smoking a bowl, hot boxing a car, demanding Cheerios, chanting “food truck! food truck!” and stepping into a hot tub fully-clothed to drink water from her shoe, I can’t help but think how awesome it must be to smoke with old people.
I get not wanting to smoke with your parents, because it looks like Melissa is having a miserable time dealing with her mother and Lynne (who makes an always-topical Natalie Wood joke), but if movies and TV have taught me anything, and they have, it’s that senior citizens smoking=HILARITY. Like that old dude from Road Trip — classic. Joan may look like she belongs in the Mos Eisley Cantina, but if she loves food trucks and calling Chelsea Handler out as much as I do, she can smoke with me anytime. Maybe she’ll call Louis?
