Susan Boyle

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Remember Susan Boyle? That was a pretty brief 15 minutes huh?

Well I for one am glad she made it up to 88 so quickly…I remember feeling seriously disappointed when a friend sent me her now famous Britain’s Got Talent performance.

Thing is, when someone links me an American Idol-type video I’m expecting to see some carnage: I mean I only clicked on it out of morbid curiosity. I want to watch them crash and burn, I want to feel better about myself watching some poor freak like Willie Hung. I definitely DO NOT want to see some uplifting tale of an ugly duckling / diamond in the rough / blah blah blah.

Well I think Susan Boyle’s newfound lack of fame teaches us one thing: pretty people will always win, no matter how much we may pretend otherwise.

Well here you go Susan, your last moments of fame:

Dave Thomas

Poor Dave Thomas (of the many Wendy’s commercials) has been up to 88 for a while now, ever since he died in 2002.

A few weeks later it was really creepy because they hired this actor who looked like him to continue the commercials. At least that’s what I thought, but I can’t find that anywhere on the internet, so maybe I just made it up. Rumor mill?

Blossom and her crazy hats got up to 88 a long time ago.

Guess what? The actress who played Blossom actually has a name! (And its not ‘Blossom’.) It’s Mayim Bialik, and she looks to be staying at 88…

John Stamos

Perhaps best known as ‘Uncle Jesse’ from Full House, John Stamos has been clinging to Hollywood’s B-list for years. After Full House he had a stint on ER and did some commercials for 1-800-COLLECT, which made this list of Dumbest Celebrity Product Endorsements of All Time.

Oh John, we all loved you in Full House but there comes a time in every actor’s life when they have to accept that they have gotten up to 88.

When was the last time you heard about Kato Kaelin? He definitely got up to 88, and probably went back to the pre murder days so he could still crash OJ’s couch.
