Okay I will confess - I’ve never seen Eurovision before - now before RoD slaps me around I have an excuse. Oh wait. No I don’t. Well being a boring chap I decided to watch it a little before catching the Chaser’s War on Everything. So I watched with some horror as band after band of weird Europeans came and sang - mostly badly. And then - Finland. Now I like Finland - I’ve been there and it’s an ace country - they share my like of alcohol and eating reindeer. But the Finnish entrant. Fascinating costumes - the band completely made up as monsters, demons and what looked like a mummy (of the Egyptian variety not the new parent variety). And the crowning achievement - what appeared to be some kind of animal head attached to the lead singer’s groin. Wow I thought - they are so taking the piss. But no. A little Google later and I discover they are a real band. A real metal band called Lordi or something. But singing some piss-weak pop song. It was absolutely surreal. Now I know why so many people like Eurovision - especially when combined with alcohol - it’s like crack for sarcastic people.
