Oprah Shares Her Secret Talent: Cleaning Up Dog Poop [Video]
Oh Oprah…as if we haven’t been fawning over you since your epic speech recently when she was presented an award at the Golden Globes, now we stand again in awe of your pure ‘Oprahness.’
Oprah is starring in Vanity Fair’s Secret Talent Theatre, where celebrities share their secret talents in funny little video vignettes. Oprah’s secret talent?
Cleaning up dog poop. Or, dog shit, as she originally calls it, before she restarts using more family-friendly language.
Telling us all that no one wants to clean up our dog poop, and being the mother of 21 dogs, she knows a thing or two about how to clean dog poop off the carpet.
Oprah shares her two main ingredients: club soda for the ‘fizzing effect’ that she’s not sure what makes it happen, and a dab (just a dab!) of dishwashing liquid to blot out the stain. Using gravy as a substitute, )because bringing her own sample? Eewwww!) she sounds so excited about cleaning dog poop, you might think it was one of her ‘favorite things’ episodes!
Friends. Listening to Oprah tell me about what she does when her dog has diarrhea is probably something I never thought I’d hear, and with her iconic and booming, “Fantaaaaaaaaassstic!” accompanying the directions? If you weren’t voting for her before, I’m pretty sure she’s locked you in now! Campaign slogan? “Who even knew that we spilled poo?”
We’re pretty impressed that for such a publication as Vanity Fair, poop was on the agenda, but then again, it is Oprah, and she pretty much runs the world.
Well, not yet, at least.
