On Friday, Oprah aired her last-ever “My Favorite Things” episode. Except oh wait, it’s not really the last ever because tomorrow there is a second batch of people waiting to get all the same gifts or something. Except she’s tricked them into feeling intense suffering by making them watch all these other people come out with their gifts, and makes them feel like “they just missed the bus.” Oprah actually says that she wanted to see the looks on their faces when they realized what they were missing. As a follow up, she wanted to see the looks on their faces when they actually got what they wanted and she gave it to them! I know she does a lot of good for people, but this just seems cruel and self-serving. I wonder if she has some sort-of Santa Claus disorder, where she must be the reason people are happy through gifting. I may notify the DSM for their fifth edition about this possible illness.
UPDATE: Some awesome GIF’s and stills of Oprah’s audience here.
