    • Russia’s glorious victory ? I did not see any glorious victory : Ukraine or Greece were better (I personaly as French prefered Bosnia or Spain), and I saw only geostrategic votes : countries voted for their mighty neighbours (and Russia is indeed mighty), and not for the real quality of the songs. I may have been a mind-reader as I guessed most of 10/12 points votes before even they were announced.
      That was a mockery of contest ! And I say that, even if I love Russia…
      Now, that may be time to introduce new rules in the contest : financial participation should be proportional to the votes and the inhabitants. And we should reintroduce the fact that singing in local language should be mandatory…

      • I was being sarcastic. The whole thing is ridiculous. Does anyone actually take it seriously or is it, like in England, the biggest joke of the year?

        • I thought that the biggest joke in England is that England is not in the Euro 2008 =) Russia is there to represent them =)

    • It wasn’t glorious, this gay Russian guy totally sucked at singing, it was just that there was nothing better to choose from.

  1. Did he take advantage of this opportunity for scientific discovery? For example, did he measure the circumference of his testicles before entering water, and then again after exit, and compare the difference and the time passed in order to determine the rate of shrinkage?

    Of course the Syrians are not as bright as the Persians (although I must give them a “shout out” for their help in destroying the infidel government in Lebanon), but maybe one of my helpful Russian friends thought to remind him.

    Also, did anyone check his testicles before he entered the water, to make sure he did not cheat (Syrians REALLY like this)? For example, maybe he had his testicles wrapped in a pair of battery-powered heated socks, which could have provided comfort during his long stay in the water. They would be like having warm roasted chestnuts by the fire on a cold winter night!

  2. I meant to add a comment again, but the complicated math equation required me to call in one of the university processors first.

    Anyway I just wanted to state that the testicles are very important, I like them.

    • Dear Imposter,

      I am flattered that you want to be me, or even like me. It is truly understandable. However, please do not use my name again, unless of course it is in adoration or congratulations for another of my strategic diplomatic victories against the West, or for my application of the wisdom of disco lyrics to a problem posted here on ER.

      Wishing you an authentic signature line,
      The “real” M. Ahmadinejad
