Shut the fuck up already!

Last night while I was at work, reading the paper... They pretend to pay me, I continue to pretend to work... A quote I saw raised my ire.

"I think America has no experience with terrorism or even with war. In Europe, we know a little bit more about those things..."

- Irish Rock Star Bono

To quote a fellow bitter Irish~American, Denis Leary-

"Oh really, asshole?"

where the fuck do you get off saying this shit? What the fuck do you know about it? Just because you have a hit recording it's supposed to give you the right and power to bad-mouth the country that gave you all your millions? And, by the way asshole, this past years' Grammy's be damned, the last time you had a decent recording was "Achtung Baby" in 1991.

I do believe you're right in one thing. You do know about terrorism. How many innocent people have been blown up by IRA bombs in London, Londonderry, Belfast and the rest over the last hundred or so years? That's all the IRA and the PIRA is, a bunch of fucking cowards and terrorists. And you guys were soooo fucking helpful in the last two Worlds Wars... Fueling and re-supplying German U-Boats that were sinking hundreds of allied ships every month, and because of those U-Boats Great Britain almost starved to death.

And Europeans know more about how to win wars? That's a Goddamn joke. The only thing I see from European history is the grand tradition of appeasement. A few names come to mind here too... Chamberlain, Petain, Chirac... A tradition that carries on today...

Let me tell you one thing before I slap those ridiculously pompous and pretentious sunglasses of your smarmy little rat-face...

If it wasn't for us Americans, almost the whole of Europe would still be speaking German... Twice!

You fucking prig! You make me ashamed to say I'm an Irish~American. If America is sooooo fucking bad, why don't you just give back all the millions you've earned here and never come the fuck back?

In total agreement with the whole Bono thing, I fucking hate that guy (hence why he is on my blog shit list). A bit extreme however on the whole "you'd all be speaking German" crap!!!

Lorna, I did say "almost" the whole of Europe would be speaking German... Not all of Europe...

Sorry this has nothing to do with this blog but I can't find the blog to comment on it. Syd at a link to the blog you wrote about working at the plant and finding the methane. I printed it last night and took it to bed. My husband and I read for about 30-45 minutes before we go to sleep, however, when I find something funny to share, I give it to him and we reads it aloud. I climbed in the bed and he begins to read your story. He stops and says, I can see where this is going... As he reads, he starts laughing so hard, he rolls over to me, grabbing his stomach and we are in tears!! He reads on...by then we are screaming with laughter!! At the end he said, I would have done it the first hour....lol, then be both agreed had it been our 20 year old, he would have called for friends to bring him Taco Bell and then waited until everyone was ready and then bang. But that was the funniest thing I've read in a very long time. You are a cut up I bet!!!

Of course the Scots wouldn't speak German. Have you heard a Scot talk? They don't even spoken English!

Ranger Tom said...

"Spoken" English, Kev? Remember you are in New Jersey...

Hooked on Phonics worked for me!

I have got to remember to stop writing things on so little sleep. I changed "haven't" to "don't," but forgot about the cascading grammatical impact.

I love Bono! And even though I don't agree with your post that shit about their laat decent being "Achtung Baby" made me giggle :)
