DUBLIN – Following a 27 year search, Bono Vox the lead singer of Irish rock band U2 has finally found what he was looking for.
It turned out it was in a jacket he’d thought he’d already checked in 1987, but there was an inside pocket he’d forgotten about.
The singer told Studio Exec:
I feel like a feckin eejit! I really do. Can you imagine it? I’ve been going round the world for the last two and a half decades singing my anthem-like plea, touching the hearts of thousands, millions perhaps, and if I’d just checked my jacket a little more carefully I wouldn’t have needed to bother. I could have sang a song about a Happy Bus instead.
A Happy Bus?
Yeah, that was what I was sitting down to write a song about when I started looking for this… er… thing.
How hard did you look for it?
Well, I climbed the highest mountains, obviously. I ran through the fields. Which was a mistake. I should have walked, being careful to look. Oh and I scaled the city walls.
Dublin’s city walls?
Yes. Among others. Jerusalem and Jericho, as well.
And all this time it was in your pocket in the wardrobe?
It’s so embarrassing now you put it like that. But on the other hand, at least it gave me the chance to kiss some honey lips and feel the healing finger tips, which feel grand. Top notch finger tips if you want to know. Plus all the colors bleed into one. I should’ve used a lower temperature on this wash cycle.
So what was it?
The thing you hadn’t found. The thing you were looking for?
Oh well I’ll show you. Wait a second. I must have… Where did I…?
