Dude, I totally missed Bono's Birthday. No cake. No ice cream. No nothing.

Oh, the shame of it. Evil Twin Biff is down in the sub-basement right now crying his eyes out. No, wait . . . I stand corrected. That isn't crying, it sounds more like a box of twinkies being put in a blender with some gummy worms and a quart of stale peach-flavored wine cooler. (Don't ask how I know that.)

I can just see Bono, sitting alone by the phone waiting for someone to call him and wish him a Happy Birthday. Sometimes it can be lonely at the top . . . don't I know it, Brother!

Well, better late than never.

Happy Birthday, Paul.

You should buy him a new shirt for his birthday.

Bono looks a little bit like Stallone. Only much, much taller.

Fred - I actually have about 10 U2 concert T-shirts (remember concert T-shirts?) I suppose I could give him one of those.

I guess you could say that I would be giving him the shirt off my back.

Jason - Have you ever seen Bono? Dude never gets mistaken for Shaq. I think you may be the first person to ever use the words tall and Bono in the same sentence.

Jenbeauty - Isn't it great . . .

Heady times, the Popmart Tour. I'd go back in less than a heartbeat. My brother (maybe we can get him to comment - I know he has the goods on Bono) and I were really close and had some really good times stalking the band during those days.

Aw. You're right, that's so sad that you forgot his birthday. Be thankful you don't have to buy him a birthday present. I mean, what in the heck do you get Bono for his birthday?
