Pranksters dress surf statue as Oprah Winfrey

ENCINITAS, Calif.

Jokesters in the beach community Cardiff-by-the-Sea dressed the surfer up as Winfrey, complete with a strapless gown and a wig.

They also hung a purse on the statue's hand, and the bag had a cover of "O Magazine" affixed to the front.

The pranksters apparently wanted to pay tribute to the talk show host, whose long-running show ended Wednesday after 25 years.
