Oprah's Dead Bitches!

5/14/2008 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Proving everything she touches turns to gold, Oprah Winfrey's dead dogs have been turned into a masterpiece.
Oprah's dead dogs
A life-size monument by controversial sculptor Daniel Edwards depicts conjoined-at-the-hip 'puppy versions' of Oprah's late Cocker Spaniel Sophie and Golden Retriever Gracie atop of the unwed 54-year-old's head. So wrong.

"Memories of Sophie and Gracie: A Puppies' Memorial" -- which opens May 22 at the Leo Kesting Gallery -- hopes to highlight "the overlooked threat of accidental pet fatality by common household products." Sophie died earlier this year of kidney failure, while Gracie passed in 2007 from choking on a ball.

This is the latest A-list mock of art created by Edwards -- the same artist responsible for The Paris Hilton Autopsy and the sculpture of a nude Britney Spears giving birth on a rug.

Art is purely subjective. If it illicits reaction than the artist has acomplished his goal, having said that... Yuck.
But it does make you think, and ask a few questions....
Why are the dogs on her head?
Is it a message that the most powerful woman in Tv issubmissive to her dogs?
Is it a buriel piece?
Why does the statue of her face look better than the real woman?
Which of the three dogs has the best hair? Longest tail? Biggest Snout?
Or is it just plain crap?

What a bunch of frickin' idiots you all are! For all of you who don't "get it", look back at this artist's previous sculptures! The sculpture is MEANT to be a mockery, not someting Oprah is going to want to put in her ginormous foyer, dumbasses! As far as all you whiney babies "Wahhh, TMZ is mean, you should be ashamed TMZ", change your diaper and quit crying! Its a shame there are people in this country that are so unintelligent that they can't spot sarcasm and dry humor! You're fueling TMZ just as much as the people that read it and laugh at it because they have a sense of frickin' humor and realize that all the quasi celebrities they pick on are frickin' funny. Obviously, you aren't that opposed to TMZ since youare taking the time to read it and type a moronic comment about how rude, unfair, and juvenile TMZ is. If you don't like it, don't read it and let the rest of have a giggle in peace!

Another pig in the headlines...Never did squat for her race....gave away 250 cars but didn't pay the taxes so most had to sell the damn things. Yet people thinks she's something special. Ugh! She's a lesbian and Stedman's gay.

I am not a fan of dogs, and even less of a fan of dog-fanatics. In fact, it is the dog fanatics that make me even less of a fan of dogs. I suppose it's a mixture of desperate craving for unconditional love- which you usually can't get from a human, and being a total control freak: "Sit! Lie down! No! Come to mama!"

Don't drool on my parade.

Poor Megan gonna bust a blood vessel cause her TMZ is getting picked on. Haha. Are you saying they can dish it out but can't take it, or that you can't giggle and take it at the same time, or............what the hell, now I'm confused. Basically I'm saying: Sorry little girl, you don't decide who can come on here. We're on here using our "sarcasm and dry wit" the way we choose. Quitcherbitchin' and suck it up.

The dogs didn't die a natural death. They knew what a useless piece of sh*t Oprah is, so they did a suicide pact.
