But that was leading up to Bono's total vocal failure two days later in Amsterdam.
Gotta hear Boner's White Christmas.

Jacob was so stoned.

Everybody was pretty stoned in ancient Judea, but don't go telling too many people that. They will have very little of it.

That's cause you listen to Bono

Genesis 32.25-32, NIV:

25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."
But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

27 The man asked him, "What is your name?"
"Jacob," he answered.

28 Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, [a] because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."

29 Jacob said, "Please tell me your name."
But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.

30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, [b] saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."

31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, [c] and he was limping because of his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob's hip was touched near the tendon.

So really, the angel wasn't overcome, just couldn't win. Then he pwnd Jacob bad. One-hit KO!

Well, stoning was a pretty popular pastime back then before TVs...

Hey, I was just kidding. But I recommend you send this to Bono 20 years ago.

Dear Bono,

Please stop stoning, and read your Bible properly.

PS: Get a haircut.
PPS: Larry will become invisible in 20 years.

Yours sincerely,

Yeah, but this is the guy who sung "early morning, a shot rings out in the Memphis sky".

Frankly, I'd be more worried if Bono got facts RIGHT.

In the Judean area and Iran? Yeah, for sure. I mean, they've done it for over 2000 years, why stop now?

Has he ever, you know... gotten a fact right? Is there evidence for this?

True that. Next thing, we'll get an album about how Obama's the first white woman to become President.

Or about saving the whalers, ha.
