Professor Patula de Fiart, course leader on the newly established BA in Subo culture at the University of Blackburn is pleased and not a little bemused to have received 267 thank you emails in her inbox after announcing some details of the course.
She has remarked on the enthusiasm of the senders but wishes to inform prospective students that she is unable to provide her neither personal mobile phone number nor home address. She has also received several emails, from apparently affluent students offering thousands of dollars to guarantee a place on the course.
Professor de Fiart wishes to advice that Susan Boyle will be taking master classes in Scottish karaoke culture with subtitles and sign language provided. Attendance at these master classes will be restricted to the students who submit the most cheesy videos to be judged by Professor de Fiart and Willy the Dangle experts (sic) in the genre.
Applications from prospective students are now being invited but those applying should be aware that the application procedure requires a test of fluency in Scottish slang, a test of the Geographic knowledge of Scotland and a practical test on the applicants ability to prepare and provide an authentic haggis.
