A Small Turnip

Jaysus. Here's what some teacher thought of Simon Cowell: "He has become quite pudgy from what I saw once on the box, and still does not know how to dress, but his sardonic wit is leaven to the morass of TV idiocy."

Ouch. I'm no fan of Cowell, but this is just a perfect example of so many British teachers' end-of-term reports. Snide, jumped-up little tyrants, I'm telling you. At least we know where Cowell learned his shtick.

And how about this appalling snippet from Morrissey's schoolteacher: "I was and am very keen on the pro-life thing, and I showed the children pictures of aborted foetuses...I would have expected him to become a poet, but he surprised me with the music because we didn't have a music department."

The banal and the terrifying, all wrapped up in one tweedy package.

I had some terrible teachers, but it was nothin' like this.
