Fascinating: Rob Bell Mysteriously Grew “Bob Ross Hair” During An Oprah Special

Under the influence of the Holy Spirit, or just bad gas, Rob Bell paints something which doesn't resemble anything by the late, great artist, Bob Ross.

“It all started innocuously enough,” said Margie Meatzenkampf. “Then before I knew what was happening, pastor Bell’s eyes rolled back and his hair instantly grew into a luscious, curly fro. It was quite frightening.” Margie is an 80-year old devotee of both Bell and Oprah, but nothing could have prepared her for what she saw on that fateful day, between the hours of 1:00 and 2:00 PM.

Viewers who tuned in to see another special on the Oprah channel were stunned to see a brand-new, glorious Rob Bell with very large hair, holding a brush and making erratic brush strokes across a canvas. He was also mumbling something about happy little friends.

Bell’s theology and message, which in recent years has centered around finding happy little friends in bushes, arborvitae, and other shrubbery-related plants, has resonated with an older, mostly senior-citizen crowd who readily admit they’re just looking for comfy feelings and someone to listen to them ramble on about the “good ol’ days.”

Oprah seemed to just “go-with-the-flow,” but admitted later that she was a bit skeeved out. “That cracker can’t pull off a fro, and I don’t care who he is, he can’t paint like grand pop-pop Rossy,” she said.

Rob Bell is currently asking $10,000 for the painting he painted “under the influence of Holy Spirit, or whatever that was.”
