Krrrrushing the opposition in the Eurovision Song Contest!
Monster hard rock heavy metal zombie mask wearing whatever group Lordi from Finland dominated the contest, though some Russians think it’s a sign of European conspiracies against Russia. Like everything else in the world.
I used up my snark quota for this week already, so I don’t have anything to say about the contest, but those hardy souls at Manolo’s Shoe Blog even watched some of the semi-finals. So we didn’t have to.
(533kr1t m3554ge 4 4m3r1c4n5: Next time a European gets shirty about his or her sophisticated culture and your supposed lack of same, just mention the time five Finns in monster masks became songmeisters of the whole continent…)
UPDATE: “Sadly, No!” gets it. And points to a YouTube of the performance, plus an interview with someone who has magenta hair and claims that naked people were running in the streets of Helsinki, bars were offering free champagne and 100,000 people will greet Lordi when they land in Suomi. Monster Finland r00lz! 1!!
