HAHAHAHA--CBC rocks

My parents, who think my taste in music is ok but don't know a heck of a lot about it (besides the major ones like U2 and Sting) are starting to get more with it. My dad called me to the TV a sec ago and sure enough, the comedy program on CBC (I think it was This Hour has 22 Minutes) was having a skit about Jean Chretien (the Canadian prime minister, for all you ignoramuses out there ) and Bono meeting for a conversation, which they did when U2 played Hamilton. Bono hung out at Chretien's house. My dad was like "Is that supposed to be a member of U2?" Yay Dad! "Bono" had the leather jacket and the purplish goggles he affects these days. He actually did look Bono-ish but "Chretien" looked nothing like Chretien. I missed half the skit, and I think it was pretty short, but the main thing I caught was Chretien telling Bono he had to go now because Mick Jagger was coming by to discuss foreign policy, or something like that.

haha! that's too funny!

I love that show! (although I must profess I never thought I'd see the word "CBC" and "rocks" in the same sentence! lol!)

(By the way, Bono met Chretien whilst in Montreal, not Hamilton...)

Oops...so much for my remark about ignoramuses I was thinking Hamilton was closer to Ottawa and it was there, but whatever...actually I have no idea how close Hamilton is to Ottawa or to Montreal...the geography of my own country can be a little shaky in my head

Man, I am not very knowlegeable about this stuff. I just assumed it was 22 Minutes. I can't say I watch either of them as a rule...but I watch no TV as a rule...

I hope I can remember to watch it. Was it any good? My mom said something about "Bono" speaking incoherently, but she get confused alot and that was probably "Jean Chretien"

I think it will be replayed Wednesday @ 8. I know Air Farce is on then, and I think it's a repeat of the firday episode rather than a new one.

In the two articles I read, it was stated that Bono actually went to Chretien's house, on Sussex Drive (I believe it's 2020 Sussex, right?).

Okay, so it's 24 Sussex, but either way, here's the article! He did go to the Prime Minister's house!

Oh yes of course Michael - I should have clarified...I meant Bono met Chretien the day of the Montreal show and not the day of the Hamilton show. He told us all about it later that night!!lol!

He was supposed to meet with a minister of something or other, but the minister was busy so he met with the PM instead.

Bono will make a U2 fan out of good old Jean yet! This is why I like Liberal governments: they make an effort to understand the mind behind the act Bono put up (that whole rock star thing ), and are willing to see beyond it (reminds me of the time Bush senior used U2 as a way of putting down Clinton, during the campain against Clinton, by saying "Clinton is taking advice from the rock "grop"...ah, rock group, U2...well then I'll consult with my aids, and I'll let him consult with Boy George..." Shows you just how intellectual and open miinded he was!! The poor soul).
