His name is Dustin. He is a turkey. And it looks like he will be carrying Ireland’s hopes to Eurovision when it’s staged… oh, somewhere in Eastern Europe later on this year. For real!
He’s already done duets with Bono and Sting (for real!) and his song is ‘Irelande Douze Points’ (for… oh, enough of that nonsense). Ireland’s Eurovision elite (think the Nolan sisters with shirts and ties) are in freefall over this outrage (‘disgusting!’, ‘to think a bunch of grown-ups could come up with this!’ ‘Enya!’) and are demanding that Dustin be ousted before the final choice is made.
We frankly think he looks very talented and are about to suggest Basil Brush as the UK entry.
