Whenever yet another RTÉ talent show is announced, I’m always reminded of the story of a friend’s cat, which formed a close emotional attachment to, of all things, a piece of black pudding.

Possibly mourning the loss of its kittens, the poor creature carried the pudding around everywhere for months on end. The more dried-up and putrid the pudding became, the less inclined the cat was to surrender it.
