Stock Market Rebounds after News of Oprah Bailout

Chicago, IL – The stock market saw a brief resurgence yesterday, a welcome change from recent, consistent lows. Many experts believe that this was an Oprah fueled jump in the market.

Earlier in the week, representatives from several financial institutions were invited to attend a taping of the Oprah show as members of the audience. According to reports, under each seat was a gift bag containing a bailout for each of the struggling companies.

“I see this as an opportunity to come together as a community and open our hearts to each other,” said Oprah. “These companies needed somebody, and I’ve got tons of money.”

Since news of the massive Oprah bailout plan, Wall Street has had an explosion with stock prices soaring. Sources say this could be the first step toward economic recovery.

Unfortunately, the financial institutions which received the bailouts were left with the responsibility of paying the taxes of the bailouts; which left some of them a little bitter on the subject.
