Karaoke Singers Living on the Dumpling Line

"Contestants from 28 countries, including the UK, have already started to belt out hit songs from the likes of Abba and Queen giving impassioned performances they hope will win the 2010 Karaoke World Championships.

Each country is represented by a male and female contestant and the competition, which started on Thursday, will culminate today (Saturday) when the jury makes its decisions."

What makes a karaoke singer any different from a normal singer? You're singing to a backing track, or a live band, it makes little difference what the source of the music behind your voice is. This seems like a peculiar competition, but there is weirder stuff so I guess I could forgive them.

"However, this year's top prize of [one] million Siberian dumplings or "pelmeni" has raised eyebrows."

So these people have traveled from all around the world, and when one of them wins they're presented with DUMPLINGS?!? They couldn't think of a prize better than dumplings, a million dumplings, no less? Let's think of some prizes that would've been better than dumplings: A car, a boat, a house, a TV. OK, OK, these are obvious, let's think of some more: A year's supply of KFC, a year's supply of beer, since the competition is in Russia how about a year's supply of vodka?; a tractor, an AK-47, a barrel of oil, a set of Russian dolls, a ushanka.

I sometimes wonder about the human race.

Wow this is fairly ridiculous. Dumplings, seriously?

DJ Mustache said...

I'm betting that Russian dumplings are superior to other dumplings worldwide.
