I was reading this hilarious book...and guess who appeared?

Well, I guess the smilie speaks for itself!

Last night I finished reading this hilarious book called "Don't you want me?" by India Knight. I was reading chapter 14, when my I caught a very very familiar word: BONO.

I immediately jumped to that paragraph and this is what it said:

"Plus, if there's one person I physically can't abide, it's Bono ( Bono! Bono! What's wrong with these people?)..."

You can imagine that I got really pissed off at the author of the book, because how dare she talk about that lovely irish guy in that way eh????

But I have to admit that then I totally forgot about that paragraph 'cus the book is totally worth it!

How could she diss Bono!

What's the book about? I'm always looking for something new and interesting to read.

Can't physically abide Bono? Is this woman perhaps a robot? Or maybe she meant Sonny Bono...

I was reading this week's People Magazine, and there's an article on that show, Puppetry Of The (well, you know ).

It was talking about celebs who have gone to see it, and was mentioned.

Now that's something I'd love to hear his reaction to

LOL, really!

This is PLEBA that this book is being discussed in-I don't think you'll find too many people here who agree with what the author of that book says. .

And speaking of the author-yeah, um, she's a little ...

LOL true!

I don't think Bono would be interested in physically abiding that woman anyway

Nope, unfortunately he wasn't talking about Sonny Bono, cus in that case...well, it would make sense!

The thing is that she was talking about the kind of guys who look like Ali G ( in the book, the character was on a date with an Ali G look alike) and wear colour glasses and that's why she mentioned Bono. But I think she made a HUGE mistake, specially now that we have found out!

The book is alright I suppose. i got it for free when I bought this magazine called "RED"; and as I didn't have anything better to do I read it. And I actually enjoyed it despite that infamous remark!

I read that too! And I thought - well I hope he wasn't sitting too close!

It cracks me up that you can get a couple of guys to willingly go onstage and play with their willies. I bet you wouldn't even have to pay them very much. Guys are weird.
