Oprah's Favorite Things

New List CRUSHES

Body Odor Pandemic

11/23/2012 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1121-oprah-winfrey-tmz-lafcoOprah's "Favorite Things" is slowly putting an end to America's body stink problem -- because ever since the Big O announced her preference for a certain kind of soap ... the company's soap sales have exploded.

Oprah publicly endorsed the Lafco soap set on her new list -- which she releases every year -- and according to a rep for Lafco, invoices have nearly quadrupled since the list came out.

We called to ask if sales have increased dramatically since Oprah's endorsement, and the rep tells us, "Holy hell, yes it has. It is our third time being chosen. We're busy as hell."

The rep adds, "We usually invoice 80-100 a day, and yesterday we had 431 invoices."

As for the other products on the list -- they're also experiencing sales booms.

The makers of Corkcicle -- a wine-chilling cork -- tell us they've experienced a 350% sales increase ... and the people behind the Tusk Capri Checkbook Clutch say they're getting TEN TIMES the normal order amount.

Sales for Oprah's favorite elliptical trainer have also gone up 300% -- according to the company, Octane Fitness.

Soap, ellipticals ... what exactly are you trying to say, Oprah?

OH NO!    

The sales increase was probably Kim Kardashian, trying to get enough to wash her gigantic ass - just once.

Really    

WHO CARES! And besides just because Ohpra likes it everyone is suppose to, sorry but that don't work for me. And it goes for all the other so called 'celebs' I don't buy something just because they endorse it or use it, I buy something because I like it and it works for me! And Ohpra is OBNOXIOUS anyway!

I wasn't aware that Americans were so lame they had to rush out and buy anything and everything Oprah endorses. I also wasn't aware there was a body odor pandemic, since I don't hang out with people who stink or do not bathe.

If the Oprah show was on the networks, the numbers would be twice that. Still, she's still got it.
The message and the messenger remains, Oprah.

P.S. Oprah's wrong about the soap. The Best soap is one with Honey and milk. (most carry honey, but not milk). It's made in Switzerland. You can order it, Right here

Oprah needs some strong soap. She probably oozes sweat stinking of chitlins, fried chicken, mac & cheese, moon pies & RC Cola. . .

Oprah is still powerful and influential. Her favorite things list does boost sales, which is good for the businesses and the economy.

People are such little stupid followers. How stupid, Too bad people don't have minds of their own anymore. Overpriced nonsense is what most of it is, but since Oprah likes it, LET'S ALL RUN RIGHT OUT AND BUY IT. Dumb people.

Hey, I might have gone a little too far (I have seen a lot of Daniel Tosh lately). But she has said in an interview that her two greatest comfort foods are southern fried chicken and homemade Mac & Cheese. Us white crackers here in the south like the same thing. . . maybe more into BBQ & Tex-Mex. Oh, & stereotypes can be funny. Ever hear Dave Chappelle slam whitey? It is hilarious!
