There were two “important” television events yesterday: the first was Oprah Winfrey’s last show (sort of) after 25 years. I say sort of because the woman DOES have her own entire cable network. It is hardly the last we have seen of her. But it is the end of her long-running daytime talk show. I thought about watching the episode yesterday because it did seem like a whole THING that was of some kind of importance and interest to a lot of human beings, but then I remembered that I don’t really care about Oprah (no offense) and that her show was not made for me (none taken) and that it would just be an hour of my life that I would never get back. I’m sure watching Tom Cruise fake-stoically tell her how much “we” would all miss her would have changed everything for me, really turned my life around. MEANWHILE, Scotty McCreery was named the winner of the 149th season of American Idol! To give you a sense of how much I have been paying attention to that show, I’ve never even heard Scotty McCreery’s name before today. Neat! I’m sure his country-style cover of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” was incredible. Clearly, between these two INCREDIBLE TV MOMENTS, I am not doing my job very well. Tough! You cannot fire someone who has already quit. Congratulations, Kelly, here are the keys to the chocolate factory.

ANYWAY, you guys should feel free to discuss television herstory in the comments, OR you might want to post pictures of animals wearing people clothes. A picture of an animal in people clothes is worth a thousand BLOGS. Either way, up to you. Oprah can’t tell you what to do anymore.

  1. You can’t say he isn’t dressed for the occasion!

  2. Sweet, I get to use this photo again.


    Pug in a pea coat.

  3. It’s crazy that 122 million votes were cast for American Idol. What a kooky world we live in! Having said that…

  4. Does K-9 count? I sorta just wanted to post K-9.

  5. THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING IN LIFE

  6. It is weird that I already took this picture and loaded it into my photobucket. I should not be allowed to have pets.


  7. Ain’t no thing, chicken wing.

  8. I’m at work and can’t do this right now, but can someone get a little Scottie McCreery photoshopping going on? kilt, bagpipes (you get the idea) on a scottie?

  9. “That Scotty is such a little cutie.” -my mom, probably

  10. Oprah, very powerful woman she is.

    • I’m sorry, but I don’t think this qualifies. HUMAN clothes, remember? I’m pretty sure Yoda is from the Puppet planet or the Decoupage system or something.

  11. I’m just going to leave this here…

  12. My favorite part of Oprah’s last show (yeah, I watched it. I’m an American white woman over 25. I have to! It’s in my being alive contract!) was when she said “you all [meaning her worldwide viewing audience] and this show have truly be the loves of my life,” while Stedman was in the audience. YA BURNT, Stedman.

  13. I don’t know if I’m the only one who watched the AI “finale,” but, this happened:

  14. This thread is RIPE for some Sugar Bush Squirrel. Someone get on it!

  15. “…country version of Heard It Through The Grapevine…” That pretty much sums up how much I don’t care about American Idol.

  16. There is never not a time for this:


  17. Me hearts Boo!

  18. I’ll stop now…

  19. it counts! there’s a bandana.

    Also I hope everyone is having better weather than Chicago. It’s 45 degrees right now.

  20. BLATANT LIES.

    On March 4th, you fully and accurately described Scotty McCreery in a post published on this blog. And I quote:

    “Scotty McCreery: With his deep, soulful voice (?) Scotty is going to do pretty well in the competition, but it’s going to be interesting to see if he can break out of his…shell?”

    P R E S C I E N T ?
