Pipping England to the post

Does anybody take the Eurovision Song Contest seriously?

Spain has officially named its entry for the Eurovision Song Contest this year. This time, Spain will be represented by The Ketchup Girls, and the song they will sing “Bloody Mary” was composed by Manuel Ruiz Gomez, the man who wrote all their other hits. Hailing from Córdoba, Las Ketchup are the four daughters of El Tomate, the Flamenco guitarist.

Now if only I had the wit to think of something as original as that I would be rich. Even still I can’t help but feel that it might stand a better chance than Daz Sampson’s “Teenage Life” if only because they are better looking.
