It's just written by a bunch of self-serving opportunist weenies.

Finnish Eurovision official Kjell Ekholm voiced concerns about Teapacks’ Push The Button entry last week, because he thought it could be deemed offensive to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

But Teapacks singer Kobi Oz denies the song is political and insists it only addresses the current worries held around the world about potential nuclear war.

Ekholm’s complaints have been dismissed by the Eurovision Song Contest organisers, and Teapacks now hope to wow judges at the contest in Finland in May.

If you're going to "push the button" by being controversial, at least own up to it. Here's hoping that Teapacks, aka the band with no ball sack, falls flat in May.
