You would have thought Oprah Winfrey would have caught on by now but she's fallen for it again.
This time the author, Ms. Prissy Henpecker, the author of "The Snake In The Popcorn Bag" had sat right there in front of Oprah, the audience and ten zillion television viewers and swore that the she had actually went on a date when she was 16 to a movie theater with one Leon, a snake handler.
There, teary-eyed, Ms. Prissy confided some of the details that one million viewers had read over the Halloween and Veteran's Day Holidays.
"Oh there was a lot left out", stated Prissy.
"Oh No!", whimpered Oprah who leaned over and gave Prissy a hug.
"Yes, the worst was reaching over in the dark and allowing me to touch the head of a snake that he had hidden in a bag of popcorn. I never trusted Leon after that."
"Was the snake in the popcorn machine?"
"Oh no, Oprah, he had brought the thing in himself, smuggled it in under his pants. Can you imagine that? I guess it was a pet."
"And you have left some of the details out of the book but will reveal them on this show, exclusively?"
"Yes, and here is one. The snake had a big head and was jerking...and it's jaws were all skinned back!! SOB!"
"Ohhhh No! Had he hurt the snake?"
"I'm not sure. I don't think so, because he kept playing with it. Maybe, teasing it some. Now I realize all the PETA people will be all over this, but it's Leon's own fault for bringing the thing into a movie theater!"
"We have to go for now, but we will get in touch with Leon overnight and see if he'll bring the snake and be on our show tomorrow or the next day."
"This is a wonderful, you-cannot-put-down thriller. Be sure to look for it at your favorite bookstore. We'll be back tomorrow. Oh, Prissy, let me give you a big old Chicago type hug!"
