    * Wanna be a pop idol? You're fired!

    Singing Bobby Gets Boot from Cyprus Police

    NICOSIA (Reuters) - A wannabe pop star has been dumped by the Cyprus police force after appearing on a talent show and belting out a haunting ballad.

    Special constable Manolis Christodoulou appeared on the hugely popular Super Idol series last week, but instead of finding fame and fortune he got his marching orders.

    "To appear (on TV) we must have permission from our superiors, which did not happen in this case," a police spokesman said. "He was fired."

    The performance was also considered an affront to the force by his superior, the spokesman said, without elaborating.

    Viewers put forward their own theories.

    While other participants prefer to stick with renditions from Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake, Chistodoulou sang "My Country has been Divided into Two," a popular ballad on the long-running division of Cyprus written in Greek and Turkish.

    "The only problem as far as I could see was that he wasn't very good," said one viewer.

    Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
