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