Joan Rivers created quite a scene at Costco yesterday, yelling through a megaphone that the store is "like Nazi Germany" and will probably start "burning the Bible" next, before handcuffing herself to a shopper's cart. Rivers staged the protest at a California store because, she claims, Costco banned her new book due to a couple racy jokes on the cover. One particularly weird line from Rivers: "This is private property that was stolen from the Indians! The Indians are the original owners of this property!" Police eventually asked Rivers to leave, and she complied, TMZ reports. (More Joan Rivers stories.)
