You could have just placed this in the "were the last two albums" thread.

Since the other was just a big joke.

Both were. But only one was funny.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

I never know what to make of these English lessons. To be fair I've dished out my fair share on here (usually to people who have no sense of humour and are already annoyed).

Maybe we could turn this into a word of the day thread.
