So farewell, then, to the NJB (Nice Jewish Boy), Michael Sophocles, who was finally fired by Sir Alan Sugar on this week’s edition of The Apprentice after proving to be useless in his latest task, renting out Ferraris, Pagani Zondas and other high-performance cars to putative petrolheads. As team leader, he was a dismal failure but, sadly, was not nearly as entertaining as he was in the previous episode, when he believed himself the reincarnation of Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini in his bid to direct a TV ad to sell tissues. So, thank you, Michael, for proving that humans as well as cats can have nine lives (or how else to explain how you survived to the last six?). Thank you, too, for giving us that exquisite TV moment when you tried to obtain a kosher chicken in Marrakesh by asking a butcher to invoke Allah’s name. Just one little word of warning: next time you claim to be a NJB, try to ensure you have mastered a few rudimentary facts about kashrut and Judaism.
