The comedian says drunken ramblings were a joke by a now ex-employee

The laugh was on Roseanne Barr Monday, when an intern administering her MySpace page posted a drunken-sounding ramble purported to be from the comedian.

“I would rather just smell like pee, like old ladies are meant to do. Aloha,” read just one of the foul-mouthed entries. (Barr, 54, is reportedly in Hawaii.)

By Monday night, the potty-mouthed posting was gone. A note on Barr’s official blog read: “One of the interns who was administering my MySpace page has been fired. I apologize for the offensive blogging that went on there last night.”

Barr added, “I write only at I apologize to all on MySpace who received the offensive bulletins. The matter has been handled.”

Proving that she can still take a joke, however, Barr also posted a separate entry three hours later, this time with a claim that the same intern had stolen her sex tape.

“I am offering $25,000 for [its] return (unless someone would like to distribute it – then I am willing to deal),” she wrote.
