Jay Mohr, Alyssa Milano

Thanks to Jay Mohr's bad joke, Alyssa Milano has had a chance to make a few literally wise cracks of her own!

The Project Runway All Stars judge has responded to Mohr's sort-of apology for rude comments he made about her body during a radio interview last month, the comedian insisting that he didn't think anyone could possibly believe that he was serious.

And in addition to staying on that high road, Milano's sense of humor remained intact.

"@jaymohr37 Thank you. Apology accepted," she tweeted, then added a few spaces down...

"(She grunts while aggressively yet cautiously prying off her head-to-toe Spanx). #PassTheCookies."

A writer named Amy MacKinnon took the words right ouf of our hands when she responded to Milano's tweet with, "@Alyssa_Milano demonstrates how to graciously and appropriately address a kerfuffle."

Milano had called Mohr out on Christmas Day after getting wind of what he said about her after they saw each other Dec. 6 at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards gala in Las Vegas, where they both presented.

"@jaymohr37 So sorry you felt the need to publicly fat-shame me," the 40-year-old wife and mom tweeted after Mohr cracked on the air that Milano looked as if she had had a baby and then decided, "'I don't really give a s--t."

"Be well and God Bless. Please send my love to your beautiful wife," she added.

After a fair amount of a different type of shaming took place in the blogosphere, Mohr finally responded yesterday with, "'@perezhilton @alyssa_milano She's stunning. I mistakenly thought the absurdity of what I was saying would have [been] taken as a joke. #fail."

Fail, indeed.

May Milano's latest tweet put an end to it. And may fewer people believe that fat jokes are actually funny, no matter how "obviously not serious" the joke teller claims them to be.
