Three cheers for Dustin the Turkey – a personal hero of mine.

A turkey who says it as he sees it – and, more often than not, gets away with it – Dustin has been a puppet celebrity on Irish children’s TV for years. Now he gets the opportunity to showcase his wares at the highest level (did I just say that?) when he represents Ireland at this years Eurovision Song Contest – although song and Eurovision have been mutually exclusive for a number of years now.

After Lordi’s gleeful molesting of the format two years ago with their Heavy Metal-lite entry, Dustin attempts to take the joke one step further with his entry Irlande Douze Points. Is the song any good? Frankly no – but its heart is in the right place (I think) and does exactly what it says on the tin, happily sending up all the conventions of Eurovision: Terry Wogan, Riverdance etc in an amazingly accurate parody.

If there’s any justice it will win at a canter. Go Dustin, we need you now more than ever!

And, if your stomach can take it, here’s the song in all its horrendous glory. You have been warned.

Best TV series theme tune ever, bar none – and had a good answering machine running gag too…

We Will Ask the Questions

It seems as though many of you (quite understandably) want to know more about me.

Well, I completely understand; when you have as high a profile as I do, it’s inevitable that people will want as much info about me as possible. So as you don’t tire out your delicate fingers scouring the World Wide Web for details (see how considerate I am), I’ve put together a little questionnaire that will answer all your queries – and if they don’t, just let me know and I’ll do my best to answer them in a subsequent article (assuming of course they’re not too personal).

Name: Harry J. Pigg.

Occupation: Detective – in fact, Grimmtown’s finest detective. Forget what you’ve heard about the Red Riding Hood Agency. If you want the best, come to me.

Marital Status: Single – but only because no-one has yet met the impossibly high standards I set. But if you’re willing to try…

Favourite Film: Babe (’nuff said)

MISSP Favourite Movie Star: Miss Piggy. This is the standard, ladies, you can but aspire…

Role Model: Jim Rockford – what do you mean you’ve never heard of him? Did you not watch The Rockford Files when you were younger. Sheeesh!

Favourite Book: I do the Grimmtown Gazette crossword every day.


You can read all about my last case involving Aladdin and his missing lamp, organised crime, a sewer and my heroics when it’s published this Autumn. Patience, my little ones, patience; it will be here soon.

My current case is called the Ho Ho Ho Mystery and involves the kidnapping of a well-known Christmas character and my attempts to solve the mystery before Christmas Eve (for obvious reasons).

Now, what more can I say.
