I'll just say this once, and I promise never to bring it up again.

It makes me sad to see the raped by wolves joke. Although honestly, I don't know what else the cockified version would be.

There, I'm done.

And now, let's dance.



Or, if you prefer something more dignified:

I was fine with Raised By Whores, which was a great addition to the Lance's Mom canon.


Not that this title is politically correct, either.

I can only speak for myself but my dislike of The Ballad of Joey Ramone is not an attempt to seem cool. It's just a terrible mess. It feels pasted together from a bunch of different tracks that can't make up their mind what they are.

The Fly is a great rock song. This is just confused.

The word "rape" does not in and of itself offend me and the image of someone (Bono?) being sexually assaulted by a pack of wolves is so ludicrous and bizarre that it doesn't strike me as being out of line.

The Miracle is a fairly decent song musically, but it's one of the most egregious examples of Bono overcooking lyrics.

"I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred?" Really? You couldn't think of a pithier way to say that? This is the band's idea of a usable chorus these days.

I woke up in the vicinity of the moment, that place in time, where a miracle took place.

Please let it be known I am nowhere near offended, I just felt kind of conflicted about it, because in general I don't like rape jokes* ... and yet I do like the absurdity of the image you described.

I don't want anyone to stop making the joke, I'm not going to get pissy about the thread title, I just would have hated myself if I didn't say it. So I did.




*dear god, I'm not trying to start a "rape jokes aren't funny!!!!" thing. I know they can be.

I have a few goofy ones like that on the topic I don't have much occasion to use. I'm waiting for an opportunity to use this one:
