Woman Watches Susan Boyle’s YouTube Video 1000 Times, Makes Tribute Dolls

Susan Boyle hasn’t even won “Britain’s Got Talent,” yet she’s already sealed her place in pop-culture history with a tiny doll created in her likeness.

Ritter painstakingly hand paints each four-inch doll and assembles miniature dowdy church-lady outfits for which Susan Boyle is so well known. Of making the dolls, Ritter says: “It’s a lot of work and each doll takes at least a couple of hours.

You could also buy a Paul Potts doll from Ritter for $22 and then make Susan and Paul make out. If you’re sick like that. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Now, a New York Times article says that snap judgments, like the one we made based on Susan’s looks, are only natural. Keep reading »
