It's all gone Pete Tong for one time Eurovision darling Dana who won the competition for Ireland in 1970.
Since then, the saccharine sweet songstress has tried her hand at a variety of new careers, indeed all kinds of everything.
However her latest venture, to front Ireland's first moon-shot, looks to be in considerable trouble and unlikely ever to get off the ground.
Kieran D. Community, Science Minister in Ireland's parliament the Dail, told The Spoof:
"Ah Jaze boy! I'd say yer wan Dana's a right feckin' crackpot if she thinks we're going to spend so much as one cent on space rockets. We leave all that stuff to the Americans"
However undaunted Dana commented:
"We must reach out and try to visit other strange new worlds and civilisations, to boldly go where no man has gone before if we are to survive. And what could be a better idea than for a friendly race like the Irish to start with the moon as it's the closest to us?"
When told that the Moon, a back lot in a Hollywood film-studio complex, has already been visited by the Americans back in the sixties and no life was found at that time, the former singer looked shocked before bursting into a fit of uncontrollable sobbing.
Val Doonican led her away for a "wee rock" in his famous rocking chair before treating the assembled hacks to quick and impromptu versions of Delaney's donkey and Paddy McGinty's goat.
The Spoof can confirm that "Man! The Craic was fierce!"
