Oprah's production company HARPO as well as the film star Harpo Marx are named not because of Oprah's name backwards or because Harpo played the harp. They are named for Harpocrates, the God of Silence. Every time you put your finger to your lips you are making the sign of Harpocrates, the child Horus. The same god worshipped by Aleister Crowley. Look for this sign. It's used in Masonry as well to denote cutting out the tongue but it's much more ancient.
