Man on the street interviews in seven United States cities discovered that Americans don't know who Cheryl Cole is. Cole, the current Pop Tart in Great Britain whose actions mirror those of Britney Spears a few years ago, is mostly unknown "across the pond."
A man in Boston responded to the question "Who is Cheryl Cole?" by saying "Did she win American Idol last year?"
A woman in Denver thought that maybe "she could be that girl Tiger Woods got into trouble for sleeping with."
A woman in San Antonio felt that "she's the one getting all the publicity for the Winter Olympics right now."
Brits were upset to learn that their "slut du jour" was not famous or well known in other countries. Said one man in Kent, "we know all about their Paris Spears and Lindsay Jessica Parker and the High School Twilight tramps, so they should know all about our skanks."
A Colonel in the British Navy was so upset at the news that he has made it his mission "to inform the world as to the identity of my beloved Cheryl and write news stories about her every day." The same Colonel was arrested on peeping Tom charges outside her bathroom window ten hours later.
