                                                  An explanation to irlande douze pointe. We were broke, so Mr taoiseach sent in the turkey, Dustin a well loved children's character. We had won before but our economy had bust and we could no longer afford to host. So we took the piss in the finest way. It was the original joke send to Eurovision. If you listen to the lyrics, it's actually pretty sound

I was like "What the hell, is it Halloween or something?" It's not like he's trying to be a girl or anything. In interviews, he talks like a dude. He probably still has his balls, and he clearly doesn't care to make himself look feminine. So, the dress is certainly a costume, but I don't know who he was dressing up as.

                                                                                        Run Away is amazing! It does NOT deserve to be on this list. I remember watching these performances way back when they were first airing, and I loved Run Away. I never thought to myself "Wow, that sax solo sure is crazy!". In fact, I was surprised to see the world become obsessed with it years later. It's just a sax solo.
