People Mistake Opera Browser for Oprah Winfrey

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 66 comments

The Oprah Browser.

The Queen of television, that would be Oprah Winfrey, has done her last show. It's the end of an era for afternoon TV.

Oprah, the self-made success story she is, has left her mark on various different areas of the media industry. She's virtually a household name in the U.S.

Opera, on the other hand, is an alternative browser that runs on a multitude of desktop and mobile platforms. Opera isn't quite a household name in the same way that Firefox is, but it can hang with all the big boys.

Believe it or not, some people get confused between Oprah and Opera. As a send off to the Queen of TV, Opera has posted some of its funnier emails from people who emailed the Norwegian company looking for Oprah.

Check them all out here.

    Talk about a huge run on sentence. Since when did they stop teaching kids about punctuation in school?

    Reminds me of the story about one of the MLB's best pitchers, Mel Faimey, who years ago was pitching a perfect game until the 9th inning, when he came out and proceeded to walk 6 batters in a row and thus lose the game.

    Afterwards, the opposing team passed by the bullpen on the way to the locker room when one of them spotted a large number of empty beer cans.

    "Look everybody - this must be the beer than made Mel Faimey walk us"!

    :D  :D

    Yes more money for the Democrats through the teachers unions, that will fix it. The USA spends more per child than any country. It's not about pumping more money to be laundered by the Unions for the Demorat party. It's about discipline, saying the pledge of allegiance and yes, praying if you wish. Disband all public sector unions and fire any hack that does not do their job in a satisfactory manner.

    They tried that in DC and they ended up forcing the one person who was making change out the door. Now DC has a mayor that looks like a drug dealer and I won't be surprised when they catch him in the act of doing something illegal.

    I'm assuming you're Republican and a Bush lover, in which case I don't know how you're making the correlation between Democrats and education. Sounds like education didn't help you much, and you're just a typical ignorant, blind follower of a political party. So I knew your claim that the U.S. spends more per child than any country was BS, and I looked it up myself. The U.S. is ranked #4, close to #3. Denmark is #1. You also must not know that George W. Bush was the Education President and passed No Child Left Behind among other programs. Go watch some more FOX News and believe whatever they tell you.

    The fact that a 9 year old girl has a cell phone disturbs me the most. The parents who refuse to teach their children hard work through discipline (rather than spoiling them with a cell phone) are what is wrong with this country.

    8 Years of Bush and 17 yr olds think Opera is pronounced Oprah.

    On a non-troll note, I haven't seen genius humour like that since the Portal Games. Props to Opera!
