I've never really had much of an opinion on Bono.  I kind of zone out when a guy flies in on a private jet and tells me to help end poverty.  Especially a guy who's a rock star, who should be banging broads and doing exotic drugs... like chewing on nicotine patches and shooting dog laxatives into his nipples or something.  But I saw this story on Bono today and now I see him for the sadistic sonofabitch he really is.

Bono, lead singer of the rock band U2, 
 is famous throughout the entertainment 
 industry for being more than just a 
 little self-righteous.  At a recent U2 
 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, he asked 
 the audience for total quiet.  Then, 
 in the silence, he started to slowly 
 clap his hands, once every few second.  
 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, fucking stop doing it then, ya
evil bastard!'
When are these richies going to learn that you just can't go around killing kids like that.  Criminey!

i saw a commercial once that said i could feed a starving kid for 13 cents. i'm figuring the Armani sunglasses this douchebag wears could put a couple pancakes in the bellies of most African children.

is there a stronger word than douchebag for this guy?

he hasn't even made any good music in about 15 years!

Hey there... this story is fake. You can check Snopes if you'd like to find out the origins of this rumor.

Dude, it's ok. I'm not CNN. I'm just some dope trying to give strangers a little chuckle here in my funky little corner of the internet.
