imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but what about parody?

Poor James Blunt. We were listening to his music and recommended him to a few friends before he became popular (and before Back to Bedlam was released in the United States).

Radio stations are now refusing to give air play to some of his songs like You're Beautiful because they have been 'over-played'.

If that wasn't bad enough (he must know how Barry Manilow feels), there are now a number of parodies of You're Beautiful on the internet.

Bloody Cold (from Dead Ringers, BBC)

- Train Wreck - from Univ of California, Irvine students (College Humor) - VIDEO link

MADtv (with Nicole Parker)

- You're Gullible (this is banned in the US following legal action) - AUDIO link

- My Cubicle - AUDIO link

- You're pitiful (Wierd Al Yankovic, and endorsed by Mr Blunt) - AUDIO link

(Kevin Sage)

People are so cruel sometimes...

My human stayed with me today to try and sleep off the flu which has made him congested and headachey. He did leave in the afternoon to go to his regular doctor to get a referral letter to give to his specialist. He also had to get a letter from his specialist doctor to explain his illness to his work, as his boss phoned him yesterday concerning all the sick days he has taken over the last twelve months. My human was very upset and was yelling at his boss on the phone. My human isn't usually like that, but he gets bullied if he doesn't get assertive and stand up for himself.

Not only did my human have to go out to do these things, it was also cold and raining. I gave him lots of cuddles when he got home.

The British One has been flu-y too, and I have been doing my best to make him feel better.

I hope your human feels better soon!

Hi Keiseroo!

Poor James indeed. Hope he has a good sense of humour. And I hope that your human is feeling better too!
