I can't even imagine a plotline

In the category of "who could conceive of such a thing?" it seems that a movie - a comedy, of course - is in the works about the Eurovision Song Contest. The screenwriter for Borat is involved with the project, so I suppose it could be funny, but honestly, I think the show speaks for itself. It doesn't really require a movie to tell its story. American audiences can't even begin to imagine what Eurovision is like until they see it for themselves, which is another reason a movie just can't do it justice.

Of course, despite all this, I will go see it. I am, after all, a victim of popular culture. And if it is half as funny as Borat I'll be laughing my head off, which is always a pleasant experience.

Father Ted - don't know if you've seen it - but they did an episode spoofing Eurovision. Hee-larious.
