Joan Rivers' Outrageous Joke About Whitney Houston

Of all the incendiary things in Joan Rivers' new book, I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me, probably the most scorching, outlandish, macabre, tasteless, sick, twisted, and funny one of all is the following wisecrack, in Joan's section about travel:

"I hate Houston. It's crawling with bugs.

"Oh, wait, that's Whitney Houston; I'm sorry, my bad.

"(Can I just mention that Whitney looked fabulous at the Grammys?

"She was in mahogany from head to toe.)"
