They were genuine calls, not that he ever actually got through to the president.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

real calls.... I remember in Lausanne he called a swiss banker..... in Zurich he called a taxi.... and yes, Bush Sr. made a reference to him during one of his speech in 93 saying that "every night he was receiving calls from a man named BONO, singer of this bad rock band U2....."....... hahahahaha

they're real calls. the public number for the white house is 202-456-1212. if you watch the zootv dc show, they have a close-up of him dialing, and he dials that number. try it....you get a phone operator for the white house! i prank-page fellow students & residents to the number when i work in the hospital

-George Who ? ; Bono:
-George The President , Mr. , Mr. Bush Please
-The Pres. is not avail. , then Bono soundin really disappointed
-G. B. is not available to MEEEE !? Well Guess I'm not so important as I thought to be , can I leave a message ?
