Dustin the Turkey Gets Douze Points

by | 24th, February 2008

DUSTIN the Turkey has been chosen to represent Ireland in the 2008 Eurovision song contest. Dustin will be singing the song ‘Irelande Douze Pointe’.

He was voted for by the public after a two-and-a-half hour competition broadcast by the Irish television station RTE. Although it was a telephone and text message vote, there was some booing from the live studio audience when the result was announced.

Dustin will now take the hopes of the Irish nation to the final stages of the competition, which will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, in May. If he wins the title it will be Ireland’s eighth victory.

Says Irish one-hit wonder Bob Geldof: “The mere fact that he is a turkey should give Ireland the edge.”
