Oprah at the Onion
Oprah Stuns Audience With Free Man Giveaway
CHICAGO—The season premiere of The Oprah Winfrey Show unleashed a surprise for viewers Monday, when host Winfrey presented her studio audience with an unexpected gift: eligible men.
. . .
Harpo Productions, Winfrey’s production company, assured the winners that their prizes are guaranteed to “be into [them]” through 2010, and agreed to pay all local and state taxes relating to the men, as well. However, federal income tax and expenses such as meals, movie tickets, motel stays, teddy bears, plush slippers, and commitment rings will not be covered.
And the funniest thing is, if she could, she would.
