That's God - He Just Thinks He's Bono

A joke I enjoy telling on occasion involves a music critic who dies and finds himself in the afterlife. He goes over to see the heavenly band tuning up, and correctly identifies Keith Moon, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Roy Orbison among others. Confused, the critic asks St. Peter about the old man in wraparound sunglasses at lead vocal. St Peter responds, "Oh, that's Bono."

The critic replies, "But Bono's not dead." And St. Peter says, under his breathe, "Sshhh. That's God. He just thinks he's Bono."

Imagine my amusement at this news report:
The Irish rocker also predicted that his music will still be around in 100 years, explaining that his songs occupy "an emotional terrain that didn't exist before our group did."
That's right, Bono. You single handedly created a brand new "emotional terrain" for all of humanity. That and 75 cents will get you a cup of coffee. Get over yourself.
