Did you get the joke?

Writing about web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krisse_Salminen

Eurovision. Did you get the in-joke? Because I didn’t.

But the blonde girl who kept sticking her ore in throughout the evening was – apparently – a spoof. Krisse Salminen is a Finnish stand-up whose routine is to prance around like a cross between Miss Piggy and Paris Hilton.

Unfortunately, Finnish comedy doesn’t seem to travel very well, and no-one seems to have realised she was a joke.

Perhaps they should have tried Borat.

  1. Dammit Doige! It’s Oar! OAR! And don’t you forget it!

    We knew she was a plant of some kind, but thought she was incredibly dippy.

    And I’ve just admitted I watched Eurovision. Crap.

  2. Although I do like the idea of her dipping some metal amalgumat into the competition. When she first appeared the sound was down on the TV and we all said “she’s a plant” so I don’t know who was taking her seriously at any stage? Or maybe the Finnish presenters’ words were convincing enough.
