And I must say interviewing Celine Deon twenty-seven times sounds like an exercise in masochism.

You know that's a spoof, right? I doubt she really interviewed her 27 times.

Sure she did.

I stand corrected.

Hehehhe, love it.

I didn't check, but I thought the 27 interviews with Celine Deon thing was very likely accurate. It makes for a stronger piece when things like that are factually correct.

Well, there were 4,561 shows that ran 25 years. They were bound to recycle things. Just look at The Simpsons!!

Now that Oprah is on repeat, it's really weird to see teaser spots for tomorrow's episode. I want a date-stamp on those, so I know how old the interviews will be, and how out-of-date the products placements are. Because I always feel like a goon getting excited about Great New Thing, only to realize that it came out in 2007, and everyone is tired of it now.

Not that I'm actually home during the hours of Oprah, or even watch it when I am at home in the weekday afternoons.

One of the Onion's charms is that they're probably gonna fact check that shit.

That, an "Oprah actually hated her show" bit is a gimme so it's no surprise they ran it, but the execution felt kind of phoned in. Yes, ha ha, those are some people who were on the show. Yes, say fucking a few more times, that's totally at odds with Oprah's established persona. Etc. Just, I dunno. No sparkle. No zazzle.

It's definitely far from the best work that The Onion can do, cortex, but it just felt soooo cathartic.
