Jeez, Oprah, Thanks For the House, But Eat Me

From the other day, Classic Oprah:

So, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, she's going to help all these Katrina victims build new houses, and then they all took buses to where their new houses were going to be built, so she could show them their neighborhood (on, of course, "Angel Lane"... presumably because "Gayle Drive" would be unseemly).

Okay, fine, that's nice.

So then she points to a big floor plan on an easel and says to them (I swear), "This is called a floor plan."

Really, Oprah? Tell me more about your world!

Later in the same show, which also was about party-planning (don't ask, there's never a theme to these things), she actually asked the audience (I swear), "Do you all throw parties?"

They answered yes.

She would probably be surprised to learn they also use cutlery and wash themselves.
