Who Knew?

Thanks to an off-hand comment by Peter David on his blog, I just found out that the infamous "Uma/Oprah" bit from the Oscars many years ago was actually a riff on an old New Yorker article, a fact that I had never heard mentioned before; I suppose people were too busy focusing on the "Oprah hates Dave!" drama.

Anyway, click here, scroll down to the bottom, and click on the "listen" link for "Yma Dream" to hear Christine Baranski's rendition of the original article.
