Caught in the act

In the Dutch-Belgian border:

Troep maken is boete betalen means in English: LITTERING IS PENALIZED.

So... can you spot the caught in the act irony? Who wants to cash in the € 50?

Oh another irony, er no, mockery that is --- the Eurovision Song Festival.

Hypothetically the battle of European singing talents, uh-huh, but since all contestant countries is at the mercy of other countries for votes, the whole show in my opinion has sourly digressed - from a classic European talent exhibition into a pseudo European circus act. It escapes me why organizers of this event cannot see the voting procedure as a form of unmitigated allied cronyism = kissing each others countries asses?

I got no beef to fry against Finland but one word to describe the Finnish rock group, LORDI that won last night’s competition: V-R-E-S-E-L-I-J-K! (check babelfish if you do not know what that means)

Last year, Ruslana in her Amazon-tribal-warrior-getup and her cannibal looking troupe from Ukraine won. This year, the less desired characters of Star Wars conquered the stage. Think along this grotesque breed: a cross between Jabba the Hut, Chewbacca and Darth Sidius in Finish Viking packaging.

Here’s a tip for the Netherlands contenders: Next year, please come to the Eurovision Song Festival as LIVING ZOMBIES. As the phlegmatics would put it, “It just gets better...nope worse, each year.”
