Echo's trip to the Supermarket

*Echo (not to be outdone) enters the supermarket pushing a grocery cart, followed by Bono, Larry, and Animatronic Edge.*

ECHO: Okay, guys, let's try and be on our best behavior, okay? You know I'm not allowed in any Wal-Mart in the country because of you.

LARRY: Why do I have to carry Cardboard Adam?

ECHO: Because Bono always leaves him in the freezer aisle.

BONO: Hey! Edge can't have his kitten in the store!

ECHO: Edge, hide your kitten in your jacket.

*Edge opens his jacket and a bunch of buttons fall out.*

LARRY: Edge! Have you been stealing my buttons?!

ECHO: That's peculiar, I didn't program him to steal buttons...Wait a minute...Where's my...Bono! You give that remote back!

BONO: Hee hee! (Runs off with Edge's remote control)

LARRY: Don't worry, he won't get far....the automatic doors frighten him, for some reason.

*Edge looks inquisitively at Echo*

ECHO: What's up? Oh, right, kitten chow...it's in Aisle Four. (Edge leaves) Alright, lets see now, bagels, english muffins...and where DID Bono go, anyway?

*Bono wanders into the produce aisle.*

BONO: Ooo, lemons. (Pulls one out of the middle of the pile and they all fall down)

*Echo looks in the direction of the crashing noise.*

ECHO: Bono!

BONO: Wasn't me.

ECHO: Get back here!

BONO: I want some candy.

ECHO: We have candy at home. Help me out and go get a carton of milk. Oh, and we need eggs.

*Edge returns with both hands full.*

ECHO: Did you get the kitten chow, Edge? And what else did you find? (Edge holds up a bottle of chocolate sauce) But Edge, you can't eat that. (Edge raises his eyebrows and grins) Oh. Ohhh... Heh heh...Edge I swear you're gonna make me hypoglycemic....Now while we're in this aisle, I wanted to get some tamales...

*Bono leaps into the cart with Cardboard Adam.*

ECHO: Oh, geez, Bono you just crushed all the eggs! Go get another dozen...and clean the yolk off Adam! He'll get all warped and smell like sulfur...

*Echo leaves to retrieve some Hamburger Helper. Upon her return to the cart she is taken aback.*

ECHO: Hey! Where did all these bottles of chardonnay come from!? And what's this...truffles?!

MACPHISTO: Oh, I'm dreadfully sorry, Miss. I thought this was my cart.

*MacPhisto takes the wine and truffles and swaggers off.*

ECHO: Alright I think we've got everything...

BONO: I want candy.

hey,Echo. the story is great. But for some reason I think you portrayed Bono very childish. Don't get me wrong but that's only my point of view ...

Anyways, Great story

Lol when my neice comes over and we take her to the market, she gets all bent out of shape if I don't go.

So we're there in the market, and (she'll be 3 in Jan.) she's like "I saw....CANDIES...Gwamma, we need ice cweam."

Mona: Yes, we need candy and ice cweam!

heheh then she finds the Goldfish crackers and gives the stink eye to the cashier when he tries to take it away from her.

anyway....

ANNOUNCER: Echo, your rebuttal?

ECHO: I find it rather amusing actually that each U2 fan community portrays the guys in different ways...if you go to fanfiction.net, you'll find that most of the humor stories portray LARRY as the childish one! Someone came up with the idea of Larry only using the tough-guy image as a front; that behind closed doors he acts like a little kid, sleeps with a blankie, sucks his thumb for comfort...but then on PLEBA he's portrayed as this button-busting beefcake.

I personally find very little difference between primadonnas and small children, and Bono can be the biggest primadonna of all (at times), and I know I'm not the first one to say that Ali actually has FIVE children to take care of. Anyway, I thought it'd be funny to make Bono into the prototypical little-kid-in-the-supermarket.

So there.

SO true...he's Mr. Snarly, Mr. Cut, Mr. Buff, Mr. Studmuffin on the Sticks. Don't you know he would just hate that!

Gals, if you haven't checked out the U2 fan fiction yet at fanfic.net, some of it is absolutely HILARIOUS. There's a girl named Mandy, who is EXACTLY like Mona (OMG!! A MONA CLONE???? GAAAAH!!!! kidding Moner! But she is a lot like you), who has written some of the funniest U2 stories...and she always portrays Larry as the biggest baby...whiney, cries, wimpers, sucks his thumb....it's a scream. You won't recognize him from his Pleba counterpart!

Question from Caller:we want to know how he's maintained his youthful looks. we think he looks so much younger than the rest of the band

Larry:let me put it this way. Michael Jackson got the idea of the oxygen tent from me. and all this hanging out with monkeys and shit like that, it's all to do with that.

D&C: That's a funny story. How come you've managed to slow down the aging process?

LM: That's a good question. I think it's the healthy living. I do all the right things. It's all the creams. I don't know maybe it's in my Levi's.

P.S. I was talking about something with Julie, and our friends Erin and Katie today in Church History, and I said "...market..."

Erin: WHAT did you say?

Mona: I said, when we go to the market--

Erin: BWWWWWAAAAAAHHAAAHAAA!!! Julie, did you hear? Say it again.

Mona: Julie, where do you buy food?

Julie: From the grocery store?

Erin: MONA SAYS MARKET!!!!!!!!!!!! Katie, listen. Katie, where do you get food?

Katie:...the grocery store?

Erin: BWWWAAAAAHAAAAAAHAAAAAAHAAAAA!!!!!

lol it was SO funny. Erin says only ppl in the 1800's say 'market.' Does anyone else call it a market? Rackem frackem.
