The Horror! Oprah Encounters a Child Who Doesn’t Know Her Name
Call the Guinness Book of World Records office. For the first time in history, Oprah Winfrey encountered a person (albeit a small one) who did not know her name.
Here’s what went down: During OWN’s Take Your Child to Work Day celebration, Oprah challenged one of her staffer’s sons—for a handsome reward of $10—to (what she thought was) a simple Q&A game.
Simple it was not. No amount of hints the OWN CEO provided—"Starts with an 'O.' How many 'O' names are there? Come on!"—could get the youngster to blurt out the Queen of All Media’s name.
Whether the cutie patootie was just being shy or truly didn't know the answer to the seemingly obvious question (blasphemy), we have to hand it to him for being the first person to relegate Oprah to commoner status.
