"Do not pick a fight with somebody who for a living, lives off hand eye coordination. Not a good idea."

(Bono at the R&R Hall of Fame Ceremony talking about a gig in 1982 when Edge punched him in the nose)

this one is from Bill Flanagan's "U2 at the end of the World." it's quite long, but it's so cute =)

“An hour later Bono’s in a Thai restaurant, with Adam’s brother Sebastian, Edge, Morleigh, Edge’s sister Jill and her husband, Tim. Tim, who grew up in the same neighborhood as the Evanses and Claytons, now works for Polygram here in Australia. AS is bound to happen at such a reunion, childhood stories dominate the conversation. Sebastian says he remembers as a little boy jumping on Edge and beating on him as hard as he could, while Edge paid absolutely no attention. Tim says that he recalls being knocked hard on the head by Adam with a toy gun. Bono says that his great memory of the Clayton house is that it was the first place he ever ate spaghetti.

‘They didn’t serve spaghetti in my neighborhood,’ he says. He was having trouble figuring out how to wind it onto his fork when Mrs. Clayton said, ‘Oh, that’s all right, Paul. It’s okay to just cut it up into little pieces and eat it.’ Young Bono went happily about doing that, chomping away, when Mrs. Clayton noticed little Sebastian having the same problem and reprimanded, ‘Sebastian! Will you eat properly or do I have to cut it up for you like a baby?’ Bono’s face turned bright red and fell into his napkin.

As the wine bottles are emptied everyone agrees that as a child Adam’s great claim to fame was his virtuoso ability to fart at the perfect moment. As the English teacher was making his most poignant poetic point Adam would poot. Bono says that the year he sat next to Adam his English grade plummeted. Edge says that Adam’s legendary status among his fellow schoolchildren was assured the time he let a big ripper in class and told the angry teacher, ‘I’m sorry, ma’am, it just slipped out of my bottom’” (419).

Poor Bono never ate spaghetti... it would've been brilliant to see babyBono eating it for the first time... *snicker* so cute!
