Some VERY lame questions there but also some good ones. How do they pick these things? I love Edge's sense of humor. When he has to go "I've gotta go, I'm running out of change, there's a lot of things if I could I'd rearrange"

Do you think that actually was Bono? I really hope a fan wouldn't tell Edge to type faster!

You're welcome guys!
Giant Lemon, I doubt it was the real Bono.
There were a lot of silly questions but The Edge made the best of it, he is a sweety and a cutie.
