lighten up, Bono!

This bit of humor, just in from my dear old dad:

Bono, the lead singer of the band U2, is famous throughout the entertainment industry for being more than just a little self-righteous.

At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, he asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, he said into the microphone, "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A voice with a broad Scottish accent, from the front of the crowd, pierces the quiet...

"Well, foockin stop doin it then!"

I heard this the other day and it still makes me laugh but it's best if told by a temulent person tolerably capable of doing a Scots accent. ;)

And who would that temulent person be? (BTW, nice word choice!)
