This cracked me up. Pious prat that he is.
During one concert in Ireland, Bono suddenly stopped singing, hushed his band, and waited for the hall to fall silent. Stepping into a spotlight he began to rhythmically clap his hands. “Every time I clap my hands,” he intoned, “a child dies in Africa.” Whereupon a voice from the audience yelled: “Well stop fooking clapping then.”
Hat Tip The Conservative Pulpit
Perhaps Africa should be thankful that Bono usually has one hand occupied.
