And Bono Never Clapped Again...

U2 bono joke clap africa child

For the users with accessibility readers, the script:

At a U2 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, Bono requested total silence.  Then, in the quiet stillness, he began to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds.  Finally, holding the audience in absolute quiet, he spoke into the microphone... "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies..."  From the front of the crowd, a voice with a broad Scottish accent pierced the quiet..."Well fookin stop doing it then ya evil bastid!"

And Bono never clapped again...
