A rare moment of good taste from Bono.

Larry, GFY.

Alternatively, Yahweh / Help! or, in reference to Interference's opinion of those albums, Mercy.

I'm pretty sure I have, but I was probably under the age of 5. I've also eaten almost every sort of aquatic creature possible, except whale or dolphin. I'd never willingly eat either.

If it's surnames, I think they should be disowned. You can't really hide who and what you are, and besides, China has a very rich and complex history and traditions to be proud of. And, of course, some other stuff not to be proud of.

If it's just regular names, that's often just hilarious. Normally they just tack on another name, so they become like John Wang Wat Ah, Wang being the surname, Wat Ah being the Chinese equivalent to a first name and John being their "Christian" or first name.

It's a growing trend in Hong Kong and I believe Japan to have a "Christian" name, although given the levels of English literacy there, people often just go for names they think sound nice. This unfortunately results in people being called like "Pizza" or "Judas" or "Italy", sort of thing.
Mainly just talking first names. I've seen Anglicised last names but I don't think anything fully changed.

I wish I could remember more of the first names my mother encountered. Some of them were absolutely hilarious. You could tell which parents had let their children pick for themselves. There were Homers, Barts, and Lisas after the Simpsons, but that's all I recall.

And I've heard of that trend of nice-sounding names striking India too. I believe I mentioned in an earlier thread there was an Indian politician named Adolf Lu Hitler Marak just because his parents liked the sound of "Adolf Hitler".

Pavarotti essentially threatened Bono to get him to write Miss Sarajevo.

"He had been asking for a song. In fact, asking is an understatement. He had been crank-calling the house. He told me that if I didn't write him a song, God would be very cross. And when I protested that we were in the middle of our own album, he would say, 'I am going to speak to God to speak to you. It's Easter. When I next call you, you will have a song.'"

Alright then, what do you think is the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?

He should have just said "write me a song or I'll sit on you".

At the moment, the most recent I can think of is Frog Legs...but, that's probably not all that weird.

Dunno, I've not eaten any really out-of-the-way weird stuff. I've seen people eat stuff like spiders and fertilised eggs (with a half-developed chicken inside ), but never really did that. The most exotic stuff I've done would be the snake, frogs or snails, probably. Or the pigeons, but that's not so much exotic as just dangerous. Stingray is another possible candidate, but isn't unusual at all where I used to live.

Edge says they stopped playing Last Night on Earth live because "it's not up there with 'New Year's Day' and 'Sunday Bloody Sunday.'"

He's an idiot in this book.

Oh FFS.

This book is really ruining my impression of him.

Dear God,

I want to sing a song with Bono. Please make him write one already.

Yours,
Pavarotti

PS: Oh yeah, sorry about your whole son dying thing. He'll be back on his feet soon, don't worry.


------------------------------------------------------


Dear Pavarotti,

Look, I'm getting around to it, okay? I DID say that we were writing our album at the moment... I suppose you could have a song on that.

Regards,
God (Bono)

PS: We sent Larry into the tomb to watch out for anyone who'd come along, but apparently he scared some people off.

Pigeon cracks me up. And stingray seems a bit odd to me, yeah.
