Simon Cowell Voted “Most Punchable” Celebrity

In a very timely tidbit of news following this week's controversial "X Factor USA" results, TV's most hated, the one and only Simon Cowell, has been voted "the most punchable celebrity" in a poll conducted by the British fitness center Gymbox. And in celebration of this finding, the London gym is offering a new "Human Punchbag" workout, in which gym members can go a couple rounds with a live Simon lookalike.

"It's no surprise that Simon Cowell was ranked most punchable celebrity after his unceremonious dumping of national sweetheart Cheryl Cole from American 'X Factor' earlier this year," read a Gymbox statement. 

I personally wouldn't mind sparring with Simon like this. Considering how furious I am not only about his Cheryl Cole firing, but about his decision to eliminate Caitlin Koch and Tora Woloshin on "The X Factor USA," I think this would be a pretty motivating workout, and a good way to legally, harmlessly blow off some steam.

Incidentally, it seems that the British public loves the idea of socking it to reality TV stars in general: Also making the top 10 of Gymbox's poll were "Britain's/America's Got Talent" judge Piers Morgan, former "X Factor U.K." contestants Jedward and Cher Lloyd, and "Celebrity Big Brother U.K." finalist/frequent reality fixture Katie Price.

Would you go a few rounds with the faux Cowell (or even the real one) if you had a chance?
