Susan Boyle is to perform a series of concerts on Mars later this year, according to reports in the popular press. However, it was later revealed that this is, in fact, a hoax.
"We had this email from some geezer called Mr. B.S. Artist," said Mr. A. N. Other, editor of The Daily Crap. "It was spelt proper and everything, so we thought it looked OK. We ain't got time to go about checking things. How was we to know it wasn't genuine?" he grumbled.
"We would recommend that fans actually get their brains into gear and think about things before scrambling to buy tickets from obvious scammers," said an entirely fictitious pretend member of Susan's team.
Meanwhile, SuBo fanatics were blaming everything that moves for the hoax. "We know exactly who's behind this hoax," said a generic unspecified fanatic. "We have absolutely no evidence, but we will publicly point the finger anyway."
"We're very disappointed," grumbled another fanatic. "We were looking forward to a trip to Mars, paid for by our wealthy husbands. Maybe she really will perform on Mars one day?"
The hoaxer has since been captured, and has been sentenced to 300 hours of non-stop blessings. He will be tagged with a red scarf and a Pebbles 'button' on his release.
