ARGH! Will they *ever* get it right???

Bono was on our local news tonight (YAY!) talking about the $5B that the U.S. is giving for the drop the debt campaign...

So a local DOOF of a newscaster, younger than ME said, "Rock star BONE-oh met with President Bush today..." GAH!

*a few moments later*

He just did a verbal retraction, but still didn't get it right. "My apologies to U2 fans, I pronounced Bone-oh Bah-no..." then he looks over at someone in the studio and goes "I still don't have it right? Well, what do I know, I listen to country."


yet a few more moments later....

"One more time. BAH-no."

Sheesh. The biggest rock band in the world, and they still can't even say the guy's name right...

"I don't usually come across as a very deep person, but really I am deep. I'm deep when I need to be. When I'm frustrated I'll let all my feelings out, I'll be deep. So let me be deep, but don't get me frustrated." ~ Me, when asked how I could write such a deep response to the meaning of "Beautiful Day"

LOL Disco... I am willing to bet that right off stage there was a PLEBAn (or should be PLEBAn) tapping her foot and fuming at this poor guy.

Woman: Repeat after me "Bah-no"
Newscaster: "Bone-oh"
Woman: Bah
Newscaster: Bah
Woman: No!
Newscaster: No!
Woman: Bah-no!
Newscaster: Bone-oh?

Every question possesses a power that does not lie in the answer.

Yeah, my father says it wrong just to annoy me. Though today we did have an educated conversaton about 3rd world debt.

Je-sus, I'm like the local spokesperson for Drop the Debt.
