Bono wishes UK DJ Happy Birthday

Can't obviously see this posted anywhere. This was on TV this morning here in the UK. A complete Spoof wishing Happy Birthday to UK DJ Dom Byrne, who is a Megga U2 fan

I am sure some of you will have a sense of humour failure here, but most of the people I know who saw it thought it was funny

Well, same for me, I don't find anything wrong or offensive, I just find it a bit boring, maybe it's a cultural thing.

Not a cultural thing. I am from the UK and it doesn't tickle my funny bone either...

And besides, it has Keith Chegwin in it and the last time I saw him on TV here, he was doing a show where everyone was naked and doing assault courses!

That memory of him is going to take a lot of therapy to erase!!!

Not really my kind of humour I guess. and what's with the lame wigs and glasses, if they're trying to imitate Bono, at least get a correct wig and some more similar shades!

Yeah, weird, pathetic British humour! Don't take offense anyone, I'm British!

Was one of them Richard Hammond?

It was KINDOF bizarrely funny. Does anyone agree?

It was just so stupid!

I think it was cos they'd probably been banking on getting Bono to do a message, so when he evidently didn't, they struggled to get something to fill in the mean time. I'm British and don't find it funny really either; used to really like Moyles when he was on in the afternoon slot, gone way downhill since he's been on in the mornings though.

I love him!

He was easily the best one.

He's actually got a bit of a rock n' roll thing going on there don't you think? A bit glamourous and humourous.

No, it was a show called "Naked Jungle" and the contestants all had to go over jungle related obstacles, totally, bare-ass naked. Oh.... the site of all that wobbly flesh and dangly bits negotiating rope-bridges and the like....

It still hurts to think of it.

And Cheggers' little dangler....

Well I thought it was bizarrely funny in a weird sort of way, but hey that's my humour. Don't even want to be thinking of Cheggers dangler

Yes it was the Hamster, can't wait to see him teamed up with Phillip Glennister in the Top Gear meets Ashes to Ashes skit on Comic Relief, wonder if Bono has done something this year? They are normally very good

Was it when he was married to the woman, forget her name, before the helicopter accident?

Am I totally thinking of someone else??
