It was billed as yet another Oprah bounty hunter show, announcing the capture of more wanted men on the modestly self-named Oprah’s Child Predator Watch List, for which she gives out $100,000. But that was a small fraction of what yesterday’s “HOprah” show was really about:
Leonardo DiCaprio (or, as we more aptly call him, “DiCrapio”) as HOprah’s new environmental expert/analyst/correspondent (with cameos by lefty Hollywoodite Laurie David). DiCrapio played at all three, yesterday, with Dicrapio and Oprah lecturing the audience about global warming, along with some annoying academic who made a Gore-esque style film on the matter (DiCrapio is the narrator).
But HOprah’s and DiCrapio’s “Global Warming 101″ would have been more aptly titled “Hypocrisy Warmed Over 101.”
The best parts of the show were the multiple complaints by HOprah and DiCrapio about the amounts of gas and energy Americans. “We use 25% of the world’s oil supply,” the wimpy actor whined. Predictably, they attacked SUVs and lectured us to drive Hybrids and stop using so much guess.
So we have a few questions for HRHypocrite HOprah and DiCrapio:
* Oprah, will you sell your private jet and quit wasting so much gas to take your fat rear for jaunts all over the country?
* Oprah, will you tear down your obscenely gargantuan, Aaron Spelling-sized mansion in Montecito, California, so you will stop wasting so much energy heating and cooling it?
* Leonardo, will you give up that gas-guzzling Lincoln Navigator SUV that you drive most of the time and which wasn’t mentioned on HOprah?
* Leonardo, will you, too, move out of your oversized manse in Hollywood, so that we little people can stop laughing at your lectures about energy use?
Didn’t think so. ‘Nuff said. We little people must DO AS OPRAH AND LEONARDO DICAPRIO SAY, NOT AS THEY DO.
