The Washington Post tells us that the current South Park episode throws a barb at Susan Boyle:

Her fan mail continues to pile up, but there are signs that Boyle fatigue might be setting in, at least for some.

Thursday night on that barometer of American social trends, the animated television show “South Park,” the character Ike wrote an expletive-laced note to his parents saying that if one more person mentioned Susan Boyle to him, he would “puke.” He was so fed up, he said, that he was running away to Somalia to become a pirate.

Earlier, the WaPo dubbed Ms Boyle “The Scot Heard Round the World”.

Which is a surer measure of success: millions of YouTube hits, or a lampooning on South Park?
