Rosie O’Donnell Explains Why She’s Batty

It’s all starting to make sense now.

From Fox News:

Rosie O’Donnell used to break her own limbs with either a baseball bat or a wooden hanger when she was a child. This revelation, as well as many about her experiences on “The View” last year, is contained in a new book she’s written due shortly called “Celebrity Detox.”

She broke her own bones, she recalls, “my hands and fingers usually. No one knew. It was a secret.” She used a Mets baseball bat she got on bat day or the hanger. Why? It was “proof I had some value, enough to be fixed.” She recalls that she was no longer sad about her mother’s death, but “distracted.”

This is shocking. Shocking! Until Rosie’s revelation I was under the impression that a Mets bat never made solid contact with anything for most of the 1960’s. I was mistaken.

By the way, Rosie finished that decade with a .187 average, meaning she hit almost two out of every ten fingers she swung at.

Rosie also dangles another clue about her childhood in two sentences. “There were many benefits to having a cast. In the middle of the night, it was a weapon.”

Now those imaginary flies and cartoon bluebirds think twice before messing with Rosie, dammit!
