South Park got round to commenting on the spat between Sinéad O'Connor and Miley Cyrus last night with an episode in which they lampooned the Dubliner with the worst Irish accent since . . . the time Bono got the South Park treatment.

A caricature of Sinéad, complete with tattoos, saw her speak in a thick brogue as she warned young pop stars about the perils of performing provocatively.

She then burst into song about how she is "looking for a boyfriend", a reference to Sinéad's appeal for love in the Irish media a few years ago.
