It’s official. She’s famous.
Susan Boyle – the dowdy Scottish woman who’s rendition of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Mis made her an instant international sensation – has been skewered on South Park.
In the episode that aired in the U.S. Wednesday night on Comedy Central, the gang, led by Cartman, decided to run away from home and join a pirate crew in Somalia.
Kylie’s little brother, Ike, explained in a letter to his parents that the Susan Boyle phenomenon has forced him to take drastic action.
In the letter, he writes: “Dear Mommy and Daddy – I am running away. I am sorry but I can no longer handle the monotony of middle class life. “Everyone at school is a ******* idiot and if one more person talked to me about that Susan Boyle performance of Les Miserables I was going to puke my ***** out through my mouth.”
Boyle joins a list of stars who have been parodied in South Park, including Britney Spears, Michael Jackson and Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell.
A recent episode poked fun at ego maniac hip-hop star Kanye West, making him sing the song: “I am a gay fish.”.
