OK, last night saw the Eurovision Song Contest grace our screens once again.  It's always good for a laugh and us Brits don't take it anywhere as seriously as most countries seem to do.  Our commentator takes the piss during the event, it's currently Graham Norton and before that the legend that was - Terry Wogan.

 

I think WG missed a marketing opportunity here by not hosting a related event.  So let's start a thread, our own completion if you like.  The rules are:

 

1.  You can put forward 2 tanks.

2.  The tanks must be from the game.

3.  The tanks can from any nation and be of any type/class (TD, Med, Prem, collector etc etc).

 

My nominations are:

 

1.  The Chieftain Mk6:  An awesome machine of the highest pedigree.  It's reputation is well deserved.  A strong contestant (so long as the rest of Europe stops neighbour scoring and stops hating us Brits lol).  The choice of vid because I live in the hope that my ole Chieftain will one day care about my WR and where she is concerned, I am just a wee puppet.

2.  The Angry Connor:  it's quirky which holds well in the Euro and I'm from Ulster, so it's good.  Plus the Eurotrash always likes us Irish.  This vid because in my Connor, when the gun is singing, I think all sorts of wonderful things in my happy space.  Plus Dana was a cracking looking woman.

What are your choices?

 

Huzzah!

 

Just had to add vids because Mjr E raised the game lol.

Lol, I can admit my guilty secret, I love Eurovision!  It is one of the funniest things on tele and thankfully safe post BREXIT!

Don’t forget to raise a toast to Sir Terry at the 9th song or post in this case!

 

I’d nominate...

It’s so hard making my mind up...

1.  Bromwell, it’s the Bucks Fizz of blitz, it’s fast, fun and wears a pretty frock...

2. Deathstar, boom bang-a bang!

The only reason we don’t take Eurovision seriously is that we are singularly crap at it and everybody hates us and accordingly never votes for us.   I can assure you, we saw it as our special domain in the 60s when the like of P Clark, C Richard and S Shaw used to win it.   Then it was a (genuinely) laughable badge of pathetic national pride.   So don’t get too chuffed.   The British, as ever, take themselves and their supposedly fabled sense of humour (mostly consisting of not holding their drink and being offensive) far too seriously.

 

As I fail to see any connection between the song contest and your proposed game, I am not playing.

Did you get out of wrong side of bed this morning?  It’s just a bit of fun...

 

I don’t think the quality of our entry matters a jot, you’re right though everyone hates us, the poor lad getting 3 points from the public vote shows that...

 

You’re right though, I am offensive and can’t hold me drink, on yet another chat ban :)

Sorry, I'm not a fan of support eurovision but I dont hate it either until it was hosted in Israel which condone state sponsored terrorism. Iceland's opinions getting flak for wanting Palestinians to have equal rights and equality suppressed.

 

I clearly understand this post does not imply or support hate and it is harmless fun but Eurovision itself does...
