I hate to open a can of worms here, but I think we could live without Dr.Phil. I get so sick of seeing him everywhere, and of hearing my girlfriend say, “You know, Dr. Phil says men should….”

Oprah is bad enough, but us guys at least have some ability to marginalize her as just a silly celebrity woman with goofy ideas for women. My GF can say, “Oprah says (fill in the blank). Maybe you should try it.” I can say, “It’s just another one of Oprah’s warm and fuzzy ideas for women. Forget it.” And it’s done.

But Dr. Phil throws out the same idea about “sharing your feelings, etc.” and my GF says, “See, he’s a manly man and he’s not afraid to share his feelings.” Thanks, Dr. Phil. You’re making it tough on all us guys out here.

I say let him keep doing his counseling. On the International Space Station. With no communications with Earth. And next time Oprah wants her show to relate to men, have her call Charles Barkley…..
