Bono on Africa

Bono, the lead singer of the band, U2, is famous throughout the entertainment industry for being more than just a little self-righteous and for his humanitarian work.

At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, he asked the audience for complete ilence.

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!"
