*OUCH* Bad U2 pun

Okay, so I'm sittin here posting before church, listening to Fox News talk about how we were evidently thiiiiiiiiisssss close to finding Has-Been Laden, and he's not there.

They went to commerical playing I Still Haven't Found What I'm Lookin For.

That's terrible!

But at least U2 has become so popular that their songs are household words!

LAMO! That is so bad, but so funny!

Did U2 really give them permission to use the song like that?!

Asking permission to use songs is not the FoxNews way! Someone on staff there must have a really demented sense of humor!

*Lobs a rotten tomato at FoxNews, in order that they make no more groaner puns like that*

That is true, cause my Dad watches FoxNews every Sunday and they always play a song by random bands, and I always wondered how (and if) they got the rights to it......

I didn't see when they played "I Still Haven't Found..." but I have seen some other crazy (and sick) ones and I wonder if any of the bands actually know their music is being used in this way....

OMG! That's terrible! But I'm LMFAO. Fox News is screwed up.

Ha! That's sort of funny but still incredibly ridiculous. I think in cases like this you don't have to get permission to use the song. I think the deal is that you can use it if you pay the royalties.

it's pretty obvious these ppl (at foxnews) have no idea about what the song is truly about!

LOL-- sorry if I caused any upset, I should qualify "news" show. It was more like one of those "news-talks" analysis things. Very informal and "hard hitting." (Sure thing, guys, if you say so.) It wasn't pretending to be "real" news. And I have a fine appreciation for bad puns, so...

Want a few more? Warning, these are TOTALLY insensitive and tasteless.

1. One night, I could have SWORN I heard my roommate say she was cooking chicken al queuda.

2. Was wrapping gifts today and mentally heard "Oh Taliban" instead of "O Tannunbaum."

3. (This one thanks to Leno )
Q. How do you beat Bin Laden at bingo?

OUCH! Man I watch too much news....
