Can his ego contain this?
U2 frontman Bono and singer/activist Bob Geldof are among the favorites to win the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize. Bono and Geldof are favored by United Kingdom bookmakers and third on the Australian bookies' list with 7-1 odds, according to published reports. The two musicians are nominated for their work to relieve poverty and hunger in Africa, including the organization of this year's massive series of Live 8 concerts. The Nobel Peace Prize is selected in secret by a five-person committee and will be announced tomorrow.
If Bono and Sir Bob get the Peace Prize, then Bono's Path to World Domination will be swept clear of resistance. He will be unstoppable as we mere mortals are mesmerized by the light emanating from his perfect being. Sir Bob, on the other hand returns to being merely a pawn used to further Bono's Great Game.
U2 begins a five-night stand at Madison Square Garden tomorrow.
First he takes Manhattan...
