Happy 50th Birthday, Bono!

Oh, Saint Bono.

Yes.  Bono’s 50 today…I heard this little joke about him years ago, and think of it whenever I read about Mr. Paul Hewson:

U2 are waiting to be let in at the gates of heaven. God is sitting in his throne and says, “Before I can let you in, I need each of you to tell me what you most believe in…”

Adam goes first and says, “I believe in a sturdy bass line and that dating supermodels is a bad idea.” Adam enters heaven.

The Edge is next. “I believe in the C chord, the G chord, and the D chord. And with those chords I believe I can change the world.’ The Edge follows Adam in.

“I believe in a 4/4 beat, all day, every day”, Larry adds. He’s then allowed through the gates.

“Now ,what do you believe in, Bono?” God asks .

“I believe you’re sitting in my chair.”

Anyway. How to describe Bono?

Singer

Songwriter

Husband

Father

Activist

Philanthropist

Irritant to Annette and Carter Magna  (this one makes me laugh…)

    There are many words that you forgot. None of them complimentary and the best thing I can say about U2 is… average at best. Not fit to shine Dave Grohl’s shoes.
