I used to immitate her all the time to my friends. I got very good at doing her accent.

No one ever got the joke though. Seems most people just tuned her out. I didn't.

And if you're listening Miss Cleo, I have always respected you, your psychic abilities, and your connections to the voodoo mob underworld. May Jabu bless you.

That's all I'm gonna say...

"May Jabu bless you" LOL!
Having familiarized myself with the Voodoo pantheon (a very noisy group, I must say), I'm afraid there is no Jabu.
I am VERY interested in hearing your Miss Cleo impression. Remind me to remind you.

Miss Cleo was a pretty good Cold Reader in retrospect:

I think I spelled his name wrong. Here is the "Jabu" I was thinking of.
