The Fatuous Famous

The slow influx of celebrities to the scene of hurricane Katrina today bought Opray Winfrey sweeping to the microphone at the sports dome in New Orleans, a venue that thousands of people will continue to call “home” for another few weeks.

Over the crackly system, with a nice dose of echo, Opray – apparently under the misguided impression that the good folk of New Orleans had lost their collective brain cells, along with their homes and jobs – shouted: “YOU ARE SURVIVORS OF A LIVING HELL”.

Ah, yep. Thanks for that inspirational and soothing little pep talk Opray.

If not for you, how else would they have had any clue of the bleedin’ f#@king obvious!


  1. yea, but she'll end up giving a shitload of money. Grisham donated $5 million to Mississippi. she can say whatever she wants--obvious or not--as long as she gives.

    I agree with Robotnik. Oprah usually annoys the crap outta me, but this one time, let her say what she wants as long as she gives - and she better give BIG! Here via BE, BTW.
