My Lovely Turkey

In case anyone's missed it, here's a story to gladden the heart - it's going to be a vintage Eurovision year, I reckon. Oddly, I was watching the wonderful 'Eurosong' episode of Father Ted only the other night. All together now: My lovely horse, running through the field. Where are you going with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?...

  1. Nige, if you don't already know about it, you should bookmark Manolo's Shoe Blog for the big event. It's a very popular and clever fashion blog written in a faux-Spanish syntax, and every year he takes on Eurovision. The pics and comments are, well, memorable. You can browse through his comments from previous years here.

  5. True, Johnny - but I suspect My Lovely Horse might outlast all his other work, if only because Father Ted will be playing somewhere on TV till the crack of doom...
