What the hey?

But...But...what about the carbon footprint? Some poor polar bears are going to suffer for this.

Oprah Taking Audience Down Under, with Travolta at Controls

Oprah Winfrey kicked off her farewell Season in true Oprah fashion by surprising her audience with a big gift: She will be taking all 300 audience members on a trip down under to Australia.

(Wait until they each get the tax bill for this one!)

I meant the guests but how about the Aussies....
Oprah Winfrey’s plans to film one of her final shows in Australia will cost local taxpayers more than AU$2.5 million (US$2.3 million), the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported Tuesday.

After getting over the initial (although minor) surprise that the O was gone already, it seems the great & powerful O is only interested in what plays well HERE. Whatever inconvenience should befall the Aussies ... well, the O doesn't really seem to care.

After re-reading that paragraph, it also seems you can't tell which O I'm talking about. Sad, either way.

I worked with a girl once that won the free use of a rental car for one year. She was elated until she found out she would owe the IRS tax on the value of the prize. She ended up declining the car because she could not afford the taxes.
