PHOENIX -- The world lost a pretty outrageous woman Thursday when Joan Rivers passed away at the age of 81.

The comedian was hospitalized last week after going into cardiac arrest during a procedure. She was placed on life support before passing away.

As the entertainment world mourned her death, we wanted to take a look back at some of her best jokes. It certainly proved difficult given her long and hilarious career, but we were able to narrow it down after a lot of debate.

We wanted to show her raw comedic style in which no one was safe, especially herself. From some of her funniest self-deprecating one-liners to scathing shots at celebrities, Rivers never pulled a punch.

Rest in peace, Joan. You and your humor will be missed.
