Well, I don't know where he's coming from but I like what he's saying. Never could stand Bono.

Ann, the placement of this post is inadvertently a bit unfortunate, appearing right above an account of several hundred people literally crushed to death.

Tom: You're right. Blogging tends to assume that each post is independent and unrelated. I regret the juxtaposition.

I would like to know exactly how much of his personal assets bono has given to charity.

Well, he's sacrificed his sperm count.

- I've always connected bono with boner, while were on the subject..and, I didn't realize people were to have light moments when disasters are unfolding. I remember when the news of the butchery in Rwanda first appeared and people were being hacked with machetes..how now I regret ordering a rare steak when I took Wifey out to dine!

Yes, but what is Mr Sex Pistol doing to alleviate poverty in Africa! Indeed, his equally asinine remarks about Bob Geldof betray not only his envy of superior talent but also his pathetic disdain for people who contribute more to our humanity that a foul mouth and cacophonous music.

Ann Althouse said...

I think he just needed a little attention -- a little love. Is that so wrong? Even Sex Pistols have feelings.

ALH ipinions said...

Ann - nothing wrong with craving a little love. But I suspect this sex pistol would stand a better chance of getting lucky if he kept his homoerotic fixation on Boner, er, Bono to himself...

John Lydon accusing anyone of being self-serving is rich. His whole career has been a self-serving media campaign. He learned at the feet of Malcolm McLaren, a true master in self-promotion and media hucksterism.

And I say that as a hardcore Sex Pistols and PiL fan.
