Oprah Can't Sell Cars

Here's proof positive that everything Oprah touches doesn't turn to gold.

The armies of brainwashed hausfraus heeding the heiferous host's every whim and command finally drew the line: despite tons of publicity from her season-opening giveaway where every audience member received a Pontiac G6, the new vehicle is a colossal flop.

Sales figures show that the the brand new model didn't benefit from the Oprah exposure- in fact, it's selling less than a quarter of what the car it replaced- the Grand Am- sold. Meaning the Oprah factor was negligible, if not compeletely non-existent.

Sounds like The Big O should stick to slapping her flabby face on her magazine covers and leave the car sellin' to the pros.
