Judges: “be prepared for plenty more contestants like William Hung” on American Idol 5

The AP has some distressing news about American Idol 5. First, though, at a media appearance to promote the show, Paula Abdul declined to talk about Corey Clark, saying instead, “I’m sitting right here happy doing what I’m doing.” Later, she added, “when you have a show this successful it’s crazy we haven’t had any more discrepancies.” With that, FOX’s lawyers probably all went into cardiac arrest.

But the real news is that, when American Idol 5 debuts in the spring, we can expect to see more delusional assmonkeys than ever before. According to the AP, “the judges said viewers of the upcoming season should be prepared for plenty more contestants like William Hung.”

I’d better make an appointment now for a transorbital lobotomy to dull the pain.
