I’ve never been a fan of Dr. Oz. (Surprise! The fact-hunting skeptic doesn’t like the snake oil salesman.) So, imagine my delight when I opened my browser this morning and found the current trending Twitter blunder. Naturally, I had to compile a list of?the?10 Tweets To Dr. Oz That He Likely Won’t Answer.
A couple days ago, Dr. Oz asked the internet to use hashtag #OzsInbox to submit their “biggest” question. Many?people sought out the advice of the
good doctor infomercial salesman on a myriad of topics.?I’m fairly certain these were not the questions he expected to receive. Although, I’m not sure how he couldn’t have seen this coming. Who wouldn’t be asking the impact of kale smoothies on wood chucking?
I know I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting?for his answer describing the’scent of Oprah’s?bottom.
What is your biggest question for me? Reply with #OzsInbox and I'll answer my favorites on http://t.co/8kjmALRoAd.

It wasn’t that long ago that the television host had his creditability torn down and handed to him. Let’s not forget this summer, when he?received a scolding from?Senator Claire McCaskill, chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety and Insurance, during a panel investigating false advertising in the diet supplement industry.
Do you have any doozies for the doctor?
