Oprah Ends Talk Show, Starts New Talk Show

CHICAGO, IL - Megastar Oprah Winfrey's talk show will end in 2011, coinciding with the start date for her newest project: hosting a comedy talk show. Said Danby Helix of Winfrey's Harpo Productions, "This is just the latest step in the ongoing creative dynamo known as Oprah Winfrey. The new venue, Oprah's Crazy Afternoon, will showcase her lighter side, featuring puppet co-hosts, sketch comedy with midgets, a weekly pie fight, and taped remote segments with Chaz Bono." According to Helix, Winfrey has always had a zany streak. "New Age guru Eckhart Tolle was on once to promote The Power of Now. Oprah kept pressing her palms against her mouth and blowing, making this blatting fart sound. Then she'd feign shock, turn on Ekhart and call him 'gas bag' and 'stink machine.' She kept that up for 9 or 10 minutes until the studio audience became so quiet you could hear cells divide. But I laughed the whole time, and being on staff had nothing to do with it." (Photo:

no doubt Oprah's departure in 2011 will be a key event in the apocalypse scheduled for 2012
