Saturday: Eurovision Song Contest

This Saturday will be the 51st Eurovision Song Contest, held in Athens, Greece.

It’s a unique event for so many reasons, but mainly, it’s the one time of the year where each country agrees to making a complete fool of itself for the sake of “music”.

While Terry Wogan’s classic commentary makes the event slightly less painful, I suggest a drinking game. Let me know if you choose to tune in to the embarrassment that is the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night!

  • Sing
  • Speak in rhyme
  • Gaze into each others eyes — drain glass if they pash

  • Play an ‘ethnic’ instrument
  • Play piano while standing

All credit for this hilarious drinking game goes to Kim Beissel.

    Did anyone notice that Pentagrams were everwhere at the Eurovision song contest and crowd members were giving the two finger satanists salute ?
    Well you should have done. Greece used a pentagram to depict 5 different aspects of Greece at the beginning of the show. The Turkish entry finished by making a pentagram out of the dancers arms. A bunch of idiots dressed as Satanists, while denying they are Satanists, won. And so on. Get the feeling someone is trying to tell us something?
    I’m glad I know Jesus!
