Does anyone know what the joke was at the roast??????

What would be the sports equivalent of Jeffrey Ross' famous (and unprintable) line about Bea Arthur and Sandra Bernhard at Jerry Stiller's roast? Since it came out of nowhere and defined roasts as we know it, the best I could come up with was either the Stansbury Statue of Liberty dunk or Dr. J's dunk from the free throw line, as they both came out of nowhere and vaulted the contests to the next level, just as Ross' line did for celebrity roasts. A case could also be made, I suppose, for Bob Beamon's long jump in '68, because I can't see anyone topping the joke for quite some time. Thoughts?
