Too Much of a Good Thing

Letter writers to the newspaper are getting really bold these days. Days after the “I would like to challenge the gahmen” letter, comes this person who says….

Too much of something, no matter how good, can end up being a turn off.

You could be forgiven if you thought for a moment the above statement was somehow related to our gahmen. But only for a moment ok? Anything longer than that and you will be held in contempt :)

Hey, I told you to stop thinking of that sentence as directed at our gahmen right? Erase it from your memory….. now!!! :)

Because hor, the letter writer was actually referring to Singapore Idol. This is the show that we copied from America – the format, the music, the stage, the colors, everything expect the singers. Well, the letter writer now adds one more to the exception list....

Singapore should not follow in the footsteps of America in the sense that there should be a string of auditions every year.

Hell yeah, why should we? We are uniquely Singaporean right? When we copy America, we are right. When we don’t, we are also right. *Clap*Clap*

Also hor, The American Idol could create a new star in the form of its host, Ryan Seacrest. And who did we choose? The possibly botoxed Phua Chu Kang without yellow boots – Gurmit Singh. We could never leave the success of the first voting exercise show for many Singaporeans to chance, could we? :)
