My Sister is Gonna Be On Oprah!

So, my awesome sister Beth does volunteer work with the non-profit organization Main Line Animal Rescue. The organization's founder Bill Smith, who won the ASPCA lifetime achievement award in 2007, recently went on a crusade to get Oprah to do a show on puppy mills (since she's always bibbedy-blabbing about her dogs and such) by erecting a billboard outside of Harpo Studios pleading for her cooperation. Well, it worked and Friday's show will feature Smith, as well as pre-taped segments from the MLAR facility which Beth will more than likely be appearing in. Anyway, despite my excitement over the sis being on TV, it's a really good cause, so check it out. I'm breaking my lifelong streak of "never having voluntarily watched an Oprah" to do so.

Oh yeah, and Oprah is dedicating the show to her dead cocker spaniel. Oh, fuck you Oprah. But anyway, still watch.

Since there's no way I can be home to watch it, you should tape it and youtube that sucker! Assuming The Oprah wouldn't crush you for that...

Oh! I saw the last half of the show but I don't think I saw her?? Was she on??

Nope, she wasn't on... They cut out her whole segment, presumably so they would have time for Oprah's Dead Dog Montage in the beginning. It was still a good show though, even if Oprah is, y'know, an asshole.

Yeah, I'm a bit behind the times on this, but gimme a break, I've been in Sumatra for a month.

As for yer sis' gig - I gotta think it's for the best that it got cut in favor of a dead dog.

C'mon, does your sis really want to be forever associated with that megalomaniacal bitch? (Uh yah, I'm obviously in the 'fuck off and die, Oprah' camp).
