Dark Lord Sues Oprah

In what is likely to become a major celebrity case, Satan is suing media mogul Oprah Winfrey for breach of contract, claiming that she’s failed to keep her end of the bargain under which she sold her soul in exchange for fame and fortune. 

The complaint claims that Winfrey signed the agreement with Diabolical Interests Groups, Inc., some 20 years ago.  Satan claims that Winfrey’s obligations were to “openly disseminat[e] evilness and wrong doing throughout the community,” which she has failed to do.  A spokesman for the entertainer/entrepreneur denies the charges:

Oprah admits that she did sign a contract with Diabolical Interests in the eighties.  However, she denies categorically that she has acted in any way that would breach this contract. She is prepared to fight this suit and feels that she would be vindicated by a court of law. She believes her show does support the interests of Satan and evil and has viewer statements that they would rather go to hell than watch another show of hers as evidence.
