There is an episode of Father Ted where Ted and Dougal enter a song for eurovision. They end up being chosen because Ireland can’t afford to host the competition again and so pick the worst entry to make sure they lose. Sounds strangely familiar for some reason. I can’t see any other reason why such a selection of rubbish is picked by the judges and the worst of the selection is then chosen by the British public.
Not heard the song? Try here. And what’s with all the gay innuendo from the camp guy?
“Salted nuts sir?”
“Something to suck on for the landing sir?”
Gimme a break. Onward to another spectacular loss at Eurovision I say!
Update: Actually, if they are going to go for cheesy, childish pop I vote we choose this song next year.
