We Love Oprah Like Oprah's Audience Loves Free Things

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

At 3 p.m. local time today, the last hour of a 25-year-journey begins, as Oprah Winfrey ends her self-titled afternoon talk show. While this super special last season has pulled out all the stops and is playing every schmaltzy, tear-duct activating card in the producers' hands, some of the best memories of Oprah's show are the ones that evoke smiles, and, more importantly laughter. There's nothing like watching a room full of people go balls out apeshit upon learning they will now own the panini press they never knew they wanted in the first place.

Your video lunch today is a healthy portion of Oprah moments and spoofs, from her penchant for yelling out the names of her celebrity guests, to a remix of her famous "You get a car, you get a car!" episode, and a couple of spoofs.
