Father Ted
A Song For Europe

Friday, 5th April 1996

Father Ted & Dougal enter the Eurovision song contest, with perhaps the worst paean to the equine species ever written:

My lovely horse, running through the field
Where are you going, with your fetlocks blowing in the wind?
I want to shower you with sugar lumps, and ride you over fences
Polish your hooves every single day, and bring you to the horse dentist
My lovely horse, you're a pony no more
Running around with a man on your back, like a train in the night...

Perhaps more frightening, the absurd video for the song is based on a real Eurovision entry. Still one of the funniest episodes of one of the funniest sitcoms ever.
