Oprah Creates Run on Nordstrom Bras -- Hailed as God


Oprah aired a bra intervention episode this week, causing a run on bras sold by Nordstrom’s, according to an article by The Seattle Times. It is hardly the first time that the woman with more money than God has caused a retail frenzy. There is a long list of devoted retailers that praise the glory of Oprah. One retail devotee of Oprah from the Container Store was impressed after Oprah featured an item from her store that soon sold out. She said of Oprah, “She is like God.”

Retailers, of course, only make up a small portion of the vast horde of Oprah disciples. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Oprah, indeed, gives people a sense of religious experience. A poll on Beliefnet.com revealed that 33% of those who responded felt that Oprah “had a more profound impact” on their spiritual lives than any clergyperson. Talk show mini-mogul, Ellen DeGeneres, pictures God as Oprah Winfrey in a purple pantsuit. As we have learned from Oprah: if a talk show host says it, it must be true. If this is the second coming, it appears that the 25 to 35 year old white guy loses out again. (Let me assure you that it only looks like I could care less.)

Now I know why my wife wants to go to Nordstom's this weekend.

I've got to turn on Parental Controls on my Dish Network.

The thing that pisses me off about the big O is the fact she is tryig to tell me what books I should be reading. I don't need someone that is a step up from a trained pony in the cirucs (an entertainer) nosing into my cultural life. It is a lot like medical advice from Tom "Weiner Head" Cruise. That and being and old white guy sucks too - seems that somehow we're to blame for everything wrong in the world.

It was Oprah's Book Club, not Oprah's mandatory-fun-time, "read this or die, you fat, old white man!" Wasn't that you yesterday, who was worried about people not reading anymore? Or did Oprah use her powers of mind control to turn you into her very own life-sized Muppet? Whoever takes medical advice from Tom Cruise gets what they deserve.
