It appears that "Israeli Idol" - loosely based on Pop Idol and American Idol - has been an unmitigated disaster for Simon Cowell with his Sam-the-Eagle-Muppet hair style.

The call to act was given to the Israeli hopefuls at auditions held at the base of the historical Mount Sinai.

Cowell and his fellow judges reviewed the acts in front of a packed audience of ordinary Israelites. However, each time an act was asked why they were there and replied "because I want to be an idol", a bearded chap dressed in a white cape by the name of Moses (the chap and not the cape was called Moses) ran down the mountain and smashed two large tablets of stone - referred to in local lingo as "The Ten Commandments" - over them.

A shocked participant, Pauline Goldcalf, recounts the experience:

"I had just finished my act, playing Brahms Concerto on my musical gourds, when Simon asked me why I was there.

"I simply replied 'I want to be an idol'. Then from nowhere, this madman, who looked like he was 700 years old, ran down the mountain and smashed my gourds with his tablets, screaming 'Thou shalt not pray to false idols'.

"I wouldn't mind, but I'm a 7th Day Adventist, and it's only the 5th Day!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
