Susan's £0.10 CD is changing hands for "Big Money on Fool-Bay !

Susan Boyle 47, is now officially bigger than the Beatles, Jesus and Elvis put together and has also sparked a crazed phenomenon of people on that internet shopping website flogging her 'Sounds of West Lothian' CD for 'BIG MONEY'.

The CD originally was given away free with newspapers, bottles of milk and on several Hospital Radio Phone-ins, but is now fetching prices of well over £500 or $700.

This much interest has not been generated since the 'Cabbage Patch dolls', 'Buzz Lightyear' and 'Tickle Me Emo' embarked on a manipulative world Christmas campaign to monopolise the' must have toys' list from 1984-1996.

The recent madness has made Glenda Kilpatrick of North Lothian a millionaire overnight. "I had a box of these singles in my charity shop and tried to give them away with every item purchased" enthused the friendly stereotypical old lady. "But I would invariably find the CD's posted back through the door the next day.

"I was about to toss them like 'Ringo Starr's fan-mail', when Susan Boyle suddenly became a star after twenty five years of trying".

"In two days I sold three CD's and was able to buy my council house. I am flogging the rest on 'Fool-bay' and watching the money roll in"

One internet buyer said "Susan is a smashing lass and I am willing to go up to $50,000 and put the wife and kiddies on the game to own a CD. Although I wouldn't have wiped my arse on it, ten days ago".

Jackson Hill, 23 is the most foolish man in Britain and will join the likes of the Beatles first manager and the man who turned down Elvis. "I had ten boxes of the CD's and I looked a the cover and thought just a bunch of craggy Jocks singing about stuff. So I took the CD's out and sold the cases in a job lot on Fool-bay and got £30 for two thousand. Now I have seen the prices the CD is changing hands for, and I want to blame someone for my stupidity, but can't think who"

Footnote: The CD is really worth a small fortune!

'Cry me a River ' selling for over thousand pounds?
