    Sorry, have to get this off my chest.

    There's a U2 concert on the tele. I wish Bono would keep to the singing because his preaching is annoying the **** out of me. He's a slime ball gimp imho and his sycophancy is intended to cultivate an undeserved status rather than motivate people to resolve world poverty. The songs are shite too ;)

    2 Simple solutions - either switch telly off or change channels ;)

    Will Self referred to Bono as the "David Brent" of the pop world. It seemed rather apt.

    I suppose he could do **** all. But then he would be accused of doing **** all.

    Blimey, the closet U2 fans are coming out!

    Many many artists are quite happy to stay just that. Nobody expects nor is critical of them for just doing that. The Beatles, great band, but such a shame that they didn't do more for whooping cough.

    Oh thank the lord, it's just ended!

    Suppose he could part with some of his millions, that would help with world poverty and the starving! Not holding my breath though.

    ... I think not. I think I'd rather apologise to anyone I've offended for misjudging the poor vilified hero of our time!

    No, but I do recall one of them trying to stop a war in Vietnam.

    No sorry - haven't a clue about U2 or Bono. Now U boats are a bit more interesting. Isn't Bono some sort of dog biscuit. Ooops no that would be Bonio :biggrin:

    Why not distract the missus with some of the other :biggrin: ;) :sad:

    Not really the point I was making, I was being flippant but never mind.

    My favourite (untrue, unfortunately) Bono story:

    At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, Bono asked the audience for total quiet.

    Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone, “Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.”

    From the front of the crowd a voice pierced the quiet …

    “Well, stop doin it then, ya evil bastard!”

    Yes! At last! Someone else who realises that:

    U2 are a bloody awful, piss-poor band.
    The Edge is a ridiculously-monickered, balding, effects-dependent joke of a guitarist.
    Bono has a face that millions would not tire of punching.

    Question: if Bono is so concerned about world poverty, why does he spend so much on sunglasses and hats? Hypocritical gobshite.
