Joke Tuesday.

If you are Politically Correct, piss off!

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

He is playing a U2 concert in Glasgow, when he asks the audience for total quiet.

Then in the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds.

Holding the audience in total silence,he says into the microphone, "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies."

A voice with a broad Glaswegian accent, near the front pierces the silence...........















"Well,stop f*cking doing it then!!"

20 years ago when B. Geldof started this Band Aid thing to Ethiopia and Sudan there were 33million people living there then and the kids were dying of starvation, the crops had failed so the west sent food, well you know the story.

Now there the population is over 70 million, but conditions haven't changed. It is still a desert, still not enough rain to grown sufficent food. The aid is still arriving.

Remember all those pictures of the wide-eyed starving children with flies crawling all over them? We saved them. Now they are grown up, carrying rifles, and are members of the "freedom fighters" who stop and rob the aid convoys and sell the food and clothes to the poorer people.
