    I am interested in the controversy raised by the Euloggy song last night - parodying the way we eulogise those who pass away - ignoring their faults etc (Maybe Mata is writing their scripts? :lol; )

    Grandad, Irwin and Brock got a run but when Lady Di and Belinda Emmet were mentioned it (predictably upset a few people.

    What do you think? Valid or too far?

    They got a lot of publicity surrounding APEC, but it has been down hill from then. I was hoping the elction would bring them back to some actual witty political satire, but there was none of that last night.

    Andrew has played that song before -- at Dead Ceasar, and it was much more relevant in that context.

    Thank goodness I'm not the only one to think that way.

    I thought last night was very funny!!! At times they are plain silly but it is all poking fun at the sacred cows in society!!!

    they can be funny - but not usually. :blah:

    good idea in the beginning, but it has quite obviously inflated their ego and now think they can churn out any old crap and get a laugh.

    What's the point really the targets of the song are dead so all they achieve is to upset their loved ones.

    Must be better ways to get a laugh.
