Big in Japan

Susan Boyle is a recognisable face the world over these days. Why, you can barely set foot on any tabloid website (*cough* – Ed) without seeing her grimacing visage staring straight back at you. And as for the papers; fuggedaboudit, no?

Anyway as much as it’s easy to appreciate the Machiavellian dealings that the likes of Simon Cowellhave pulled off to make an absolute fortune by flying someone with a history of mental problems off around the world and exposing her to unimaginable levels of fame (all based on a cynical talent show that both patronised ugly people and set the bar for talent really rather low), sometimes it’s all a bit much. Why even Japanese comedians are sending up the poor girl, and doing it in a quite funny (and entirely unintelligible) fashion too. Is there no relief?
