Bono Pontified & Children Died

Eursoc reports:

"U2 were performing in Hampden Park, Glasgow, to a sell-out audience.

In the middle of the concert Bono hushed the crowd, asking for complete silence. Then he slowly started clapping his hands, clap-clap-clap-clap-clap.

Holding the audience in awestruck silence he says softly and seriously into the microphone "You know every time I clap my hands a child in Africa dies..."

A voice from the back row shouts "well f***ing well stop doin' it then!""

That reminds me of an old Thomas Sowell comment of statistics usage:

"Statistics say that in New York a pedestrian is hit by a car every twenty seconds. Boy, I bet he isn't very happy about that!"

(H.T. Commonsense and Wonder.)
