The Irish sense of humour

From Daniel on Saturday 14th May 2011

Good News! Ireland still has a sense of humour!

This is what Europeans are saying to each other the day after Jedward qualified for the Eurovision Song Contest final.

“They sent a turkey here once!” said one Europhile in attendance at the qualifiers. He finished on “I admire the Irish for their humour, they always bring something to the party”.

So goodwill seems to be the currency of the day, and though we might not be the star pupils in the Commissioner Rehn’s eyes, the European Community enjoy the Irish sense of fun and our ability to bring something to the party.

Its admitted, Jedward won’t exactly set the musical world alight but hey, the party is still going.
