Sunday Eurovision Cat

As noted in an earlier post, I am a big fan of the Eurovision Song Contest (I love to show it to American guests who show up gushing about the superiority of European culture). The big event is next weekend, so I thought this Sunday I’d share one of my favourite Eurovision entries with you. (Each country selects their finest musicians to compete in one of the biggest television events of the year, and this was France’s 2007 entry.) The cat really is one of the high points. But it’s just one of them.

In case you’re wondering, “didn’t win” rather understates the fate of this entry. But that was obviously a travesty.
