Don’t forget – the voting for Eurovision 2008 is now.

For non-European readers, it’s Europe’s most watched (and most important) cultural event, an international Song Contest with such examples of lyrical genius as ‘icatu, o you lissen ac at ti yi’ (or something – Belgium), ‘there’s always someone out there who’ll be there for you… who’ll be true, true, true..’ (Norway?), ‘in a fairytale I found you’ (not sure), ‘My heart goes crazy, when I think of you’ (Andorra), and ‘do you like Irish stew’… not forgetting Greece’s ‘secret combination’, which is ‘at the centre of my heart’, scantily clad women, stage shows straight from the outer suburbs of Tack City, Israeli cross-dressers (and this year a backing group which appears to have been recruited from Mossad), and the greatest anachronism of them all – heavy metal bands.

And thats only the first of two semi-finals. Brilliant!

    Now, now Colman, no need for the unripe grapes. Our EU neighbours are not responsible for the fact that the non-EU European nations voted against us in an obvious and deliberate, ongoing anti-Irish conspiracy. They just don’t understand our subtle sense of humour (g’day, Austria).
