  1. 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."

    A voice with a broad Scottish accent from the front of the crowd pierced
    the quiet... "Well, foockin stop doin it then, ya evil b*stard!"

    ROFPMSL !!!!

    I like U2's music, don't always agree with their preaching though.

    Like some folk on here, they have an opinion, but if you disagree you're a total langer and are always wrong.

    Of course I can !! I just prefer to walk on the bottom bit and look at the fishy fishes !
  6. I've heard this one before. Great put down for someone who is, occasionally, a bit too pompous and preachy for his own good!

    Depends if you believe that he is trying to improve things or alternatively trying to boost his profile by taking on a cause.

    I think they're not necessarily mutually exclusive however I believe he is not very effective at the former.

    The recent South Park episode taking the mickey out of Bono was funny.
