The X Factor
Britain has always been a source of amazing music. From Benjamin Britten to The Beatles to Marina and the Diamonds (okay, that one was just personal preference), but suddenly all our teenagers are screaming about a band that sounds like it is called Want Erection and half the country can't pronounce Wagner. People everywhere have been talking about how awful he is, but how can they think that when Ride of the Valkyries is one of the most famous pieces ever? I don't know, what is so appealing about the X Factor? Am I missing something great, or is it as stupid as your mum (who, by the way, is so dumb she tried to wear a jacket potato)?
