Now Oprah's Just Showing Off

2010_11_22_Oprah.jpg We knew that Oprah was going to give away something else today, but we had assumed that it would be another set of stuff similar to what she gave away on Friday's show.

This is what we get for assuming.

The Big O, not fazed at all by the Pontiac G-Six fiasco from a few years back, gave away to everyone in her audience a 2011 Volkswagen Beetle. You don't think the folks who attended Friday's show were watching that and having just the slightest pangs of envy? not to mention us hitting the calculator to figure out the tax hit?

The audience also received free iPads and Garrett's popcorn. Now that, we can get down with.
