Oprah Winfrey is screwing Australia for $3,000,000

Oprah Winfrey loves all the free press and adulation she gets when she has her big giveaway show and everyone in the audience gets some amazing gift. What she doesn’t love is being the one that pays for any of it.

Like when she gave away 276 Pontiac G6‘s. Pontiac paid for all that. Cost them 7 million dollars. And the audience had to pay the taxes (Daily Show report here). To her credit, this blog says she gave the audience $2500 to cover the taxes one year, but in that case, Oprah, who according to Forbes is the worlds 234th richest person with a net worth of $2.7 billion, still fucked them with a $5500 tax bill. And of course, they would presumably have to pay taxes on that $2500 as well. Oh she’s just an angel.

Well now it’s Oprahs final season, and for her premiere this week she gave her audience… an 8 day vacation to Australia!

OMG! How amazingly nice of Oprah the Australian people! They’re the first in line to get screwed by Oprah this year, because their tax dollars are helping to bankroll her narcissistic antics. Popeater says…

Oprah Winfrey announced this week that she’s taking a plane full of fans on a trip to Australia, where she’ll be taping several episodes of her talk show and shuttling her guests to various sights.

So Isla Fisher, Sophie Turner, S.I. model Natalie Mendoza, porn star Kiki Vidis, Miranda Kerr, Yvonne Strzechowski (the blond girl from ‘Chuck’), Holly Valance, Naomi Watts, Rose Byrne, Elle Macpherson, and Isabel Lucas came here, and Oprah is going there?

Wow Australia is really getting fucked in this deal.

…Australian taxpayers will help foot the bill, to the tune of $3 million, the nation’s tourism minister said.
“We spent hundreds of millions of dollars over 30 years without much effect, I must say that honestly,” he said. “The publicity that Oprah will bring to Australia around the world is something you couldn’t buy.”

There is literally no one on earth who pictures Australia as anything other than wonderful. Clean, beautiful, filled with friendly people and gorgeous women with sexy accents in bikinis on pristine sun kissed beaches. They might as well spend 3 million to advocate putting cowboy hats on puppies. These are things everyone already loves. It would be like Jessica Alba printing up a list of reasons for why you should let her blow you.

    In retrospect I’d rather read about this than anything that was posted yesterday.

    Didn’t Oprah wear a fried chicken dress to the VMAs?

  4. RemSteale 09/14/2010 11:48

    So they are going to take an average Oprah audience to Australia?

    Can you re-inforce a 747 that much??

  5. RemSteale 09/14/2010 11:52

    Actually this is a golden opportunity, just take them a couple of hundered miles into the outback and leave them there

    I said ,”The dingo ate your baby!”

  7. MrAdams 09/14/2010 11:56

    This is a one-way trip, right?

    Just imagining all those hens on one plane for 18 hours is a little too much for this cracker…..pass.

    I wonder what Oprah’s clam smells like.

  11. RemSteale 09/14/2010 12:02

    It would be like watching Chicken Run

    The definition of horror

  12. RemSteale 09/14/2010 12:03

    It would be like watching Chicken Run 13 times in a row.

    Bloody 64 bit windows….

  13. Tom Foolery 09/14/2010 12:08

    Rem it would take quite a few in flight drinks and sleeping pills to get me through that blood bath.

    200+ Orca, I mean Oprah, devotees on a plane? Quick, somebody alert Al Qaeda

  15. RemSteale 09/14/2010 12:09

    Makes you understand air rage

  16. Gildorg 09/14/2010 12:09

    Maybe they could re-film, Snakes on a Plane…

    Though the snakes might be the ones eaten this time around…

    Australia was wise to keep its coons aborigines on the plantation “Outback”…..

  18. Watt 09/14/2010 12:12

    Yeah except tourism to australia from the us:

    18 hr flight,
    7 nights in a hotel
    Meals
    Taxis
    Tourism shit
    Etc.

    Its not cheap, and the average fat slob america isn’t going to drop $8,000 to fly a family of 4 over there for 7 days.

    Is Tom around today?

    How’s your ass feel buddy….nothing like special teams having all your offense

    I missed the part of the story where Oprah forced those people to take those cars.

    They got fucked because they had to pay $5,500 in taxes for a brand new fucking car and $2,500 in cash?

    Where do I sign up to get ‘fucked’ like that?
