Pop Quiz: I-Wear-My-Sunglasses-at-Night Edition

We'll see how this goes...

Defend or rebut the following assertion:
Bono is a jackass.
Points will be awarded for persuasiveness. Extra points will be awarded to anyone who actually makes it seem plausible that Bono is not a jackass.

    The Saints are Coming.

    Other than that, yeah, he's a jackass.

  2. pro bono:

    he is the preeminent advocate for cataract prevention and general eye safety.

    anti bono:

    he has a son named Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q.

    he sang on that horrid "do they know it's christmas?" song (which, despite its good intentions, is still awful)

    overall: he wins the steve-O award.

    Pro Bono:
    He sang on "do they know it's christmas?"
    -the hands-down funniest dumbass Westerners holiday song of all time.

    It doesn't even make sense.

  4. I'm loving the "pro bono" pun. I wish I'd been smart enough to think of it.

    Pro bono. I like"Do They Know It's Christmas"(I know, I know it's awful but) and he has done a lot to raise awareness of and funding for the treatments of AIDS

    Well it seems most of us tend to be focused on "extra points" in general because, obviously he's a jackass.

    My defense of the principal assertion is that these (pro Bono) arguments are inadmissable due to the obvious "grade grubbing" tendencies of your readers!

    Now, he's being knighted.
    Being knighted seems about as arbitrary as winning an academy award.

    yep. Sir Bono.
