Bono reworks “Vertigo” lyrics to console Martin (I am making this up.)

N.B. Right-wing computer geeks intercepted this Blackberry message to Paul Martin from U2 front man Bono:

From: Bono
To: Paul Martin

Paul, didn’t I warn you you’d better commit 0.7 per cent of your GDP to foreign aid? When I wrote “give me what I want, and no one gets hurt,” who do you think I was talking to – the Liberian shipping registrar?

Sorry man, that’s just my Irish humour. Bummer about the election. Here are some words to cheer you up until we can get together for a pint. You can still afford to pay, right? ;-)

Good day, good day
You’re in a place called Stornoway
The voters saw that you had feet of clay
So you’re
Gonna live here
For now
Until you’re replaced.

Chin up, mate! Talk to you soon.

You have seriously made my day (huge U2 fan).
