The Scottish and Irish

At a recent U2 concert in Glasgow, lead singer Bono asked the audience for total quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every few seconds.

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

A voice with a broad Scottish accent from the front of the crowd pierced the quiet... 'Well, foockin' stop doin it then, ya evil bastard!'

That's the Scottish for you... I think maybe the light needed to be turned on in his head... He's obviously not a One member.
