Ugh. Oh dear, oh dear. Anyone catch the Eurosong 2008 contest on RTE on Saturday evening? The contest was to determine who would represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

Well, if you missed it, the winner is pictured to your left. That's right. A puppet turkey will represent this country before an audience of hundreds of millions of Europeans.

What a bloody farce.

Everyone knows that the Eurovision Song Contest has been bereft of actual talent for years now, but that doesn't mean we should be supporting talentless pop pap acts. I'd rather us withdraw from the competition altogether than have this irritating bit of plastic acting as a symbol of Irishness.

I wouldn't even mind a song that took the piss out of the Eurovision if it was actually good. Anyone who's seen the My Lovely Horse bit from Father Ted knows that's the way you do it. The monstrosity that Ireland is inflicting on Europe though is absolutely appalling.

You can hear the song here:

I'm a Dub and I can barely understand what the hell he's saying. What hope do Lithuanians and the like have?

That is one turkey that's facing a stuffing.
