    Maybe it would make more sense if I had an clue who is in that picture. Is it a dreaded dictator or possibly a serial killer? Or worse?

    I heard an urban legend that says you swallow 14 Charlie Sheens in your sleep during your lifetime.

    Funny. Did you do this, Rob? I can see this being lifted and used in multiple instances… the birth of a new meme.

  • Elmo Gearloose says:

    Whenever I see Charlie Sheen’s dead soulless eyes, I try to think of something nice and furry like a trapdoor spider or a tasmanian devil.

    Since when does a fear of heights make no sense, Dr. Oz? I think that’s called self-preservation.

    Stick to talking about obesity and heart disease. That’s where all the money is.

    • freshacconci says:

      A fear of heights is irrational when you are totally safe but you’re still scared, especially when it interferes with your life. I used to be absolutely terrified of heights. I couldn’t walk across bridges, couldn’t climb outdoor staircases, couldn’t ride in a glass elevator.

      Being afraid to stand on the edge of a cliff is self-preservation. Being afraid to ride in a mall elevator is a nuisance.

    Regardless of her particular phobia, the segment plays like an infomercial, overly earnest and melodramatic.

    This is kind of like my reaction when I see a unicorn image on BB. It’s always the precursor to something even worse.

  • Sekino says:

    There is tea all over my keyboard. I was wondering why something as ordinary as some daytime show on phobias was doing on BB…

    Perfect delivery!

    Until I started reading the comments, I was convinced that the picture on the screen was Dr. Oz, making the whole episode even more parodical. I guess I really do have face blindness.

    I am Oprahphobic, so there’s no way in hell I’m watching this. Even her spinoffs give me the heebie jeebies.

  • t3knomanser says:

    She has a phobia like I do. Which is to say, she doesn’t, but if paid enough, she could fake it really damn well. The edit reveals the truth of the problem- she’s an actress paid to act scared to make ratings. Nothing more, possibly a little less.

    Ironically this video gave me the opposite reaction she was having. It triggered my love of cute redheads.

  • grum says:

    So she has a fear of spiders. Dr. Oz should just send her to Oz. We have plenty of spiders that can help her deal with that fear. We also have plenty of other dangerous animals she can develop a fear of instead.

    haha. didn’t see that coming. fake, but funny.

    YOU ROCK!!!!! I wondered, is her fear Charlie Sheen or crackhead teeth?

  • Editz says:

    I think I enjoyed the “Oh Bitch Please” looks from the two audience members more.

  • wrybread says:

    Ha, bravo, well done.

  • anechoic says:

    absolutely brilliant!

  • Tzunun says:

    Spiders are more afraid of you than you are of them. If only that were true of Mr. Sheen.

  • batu b says:

    Wow, that’s some real faith-healer type shit. I didn’t realize the Oz was such a charlatan!

    I read somewhere that you’re never more than three feet from a Charlie Sheen.

  • Antinous / Moderator says:

    Those things are horrible. They shit all over your bathroom floor. They’ll even crawl into your bed. And they make the nastiest sounds.

    Is this for real?

  • Lobster says:

    I’m not a fan of Dr. Oz.

    My parents had a hot air popcorn popper when they were in college. They had one when I was a little kid. They had one while I was growing up. Yet Dr. Oz mentions the thing and suddenly my mother feels like the heavens have parted and God himself has told her that plain popcorn is a healthy snack.

    Not because it’s friggin obvious. Because “Oz” says so.

  • Nicky G says:

    I thought that phobias were IRRATIONAL fears? Charlie Sheen? Definitely something to be very, very afraid of.

  • Anonymous says:

    Wait. Is she seriously terrified of Charlie Sheen? REALLY? I mean. Are we going to see a Fiji mermaid next?
