Coming soon to a country near you ...
Oh yes my friends, Europe is preparing for the greatest song contests of them all. Since last year Finland took the title home, this year´s excitement will be brought to you live from Helsinki. Penguin has been there, it´s a nice enough place!
Now, as wannabe composers write cliché songs not out of inspiration but dedication to a cause and a deadline, different variety of crap is created, voted on and celebrated as if it were the greatest thing since mullets came out of fashion.
Iceland takes it to a whole new level. It is sort of a national holiday here: streets are empty, fights are put on hold and food in restaurants never make it to the frying pan. Sleeping beauty re-incarnate.
This year I am not gonna be some chump at work; in true Icelandic fashion, I took the day off and will celebrate big style at a Eurovsion party with the theme of "PURPLE". Now purple is not a colour that complements me in any shape or form, but it is besides the point and I have been informed that there will be purple cake!
This is the song Iceland will be cheering to:
I know! Pretty landscape though!
Now, the thing about Eurovision is that it is gonna be a song like this:
that´ll probably win.
And you thought America is weird!
