Oprah & Dr. Oz against quacks?

Oprah & Dr. Oz against quacks? Well, this is a new one. For once, instead of pushing more woo on people, Beavis & Butthead actually did something right. After discovering that many quacks try to cash in on the legendary influence of the dynamic duo of dumb by falsely claiming endorsements by the Double O’s. Some websites even use voiceovers from actors who sound like Oprah. But a statement released on Wednesday refers to a federal lawsuit:

These defendants are willfully capitalizing on plaintiffs’ valuable reputation and intellectual property rights to lure consumers into ordering their infringing products on the false premise that they have been tested or recommended by Ms Winfrey and/or Dr Oz when they have not. The suit claims the actions had “gravely injured” their reputations.

I kinda got to laugh at that last part about their reputations being “gravely injured.” Obviously these 2 have endorsed products just as absurd as those that Fake Oprah and Fake Oz have endorsed. As promoters of alternative “medicine” and pseudo-science their reputations can’t get any lower than they already are. Real Oprah endorses The Secret.
