I'm currently feelin: dorky
I'm currently hearin: 80's stuff

Last night my mom called me out of my hibernation to answer a question on Who Wants to be a Millionare. They were asking for Bono's real first name. Of course, it was quite easy.

The funny thing is that this college guy didn't know it and had to use 2 lifelines!!!

The sad part is that my mom couldn't pronounce Bono right. She said it about 5 different ways, none of which were correct.
*facepalm*

I'm working on her.

It's only easy if you know it .... like what is Gary Glitter's real name or what is Marilyn Manson's real name etc

And I have no clue who Gary Glitter is...so you are half right.

My mum can't say Bono right either. It gets so annoying after I've banged on about him 40 times in one day. You think she'd learn.

My mom cannot pronounce Bono correctly (Bone-O?). My dad doesn't even know who Bono is. I think I showed him once while he was on TV and he said he looked like a bum.
:/

He also said Hugh Laurie looks like a bum. LOL

My dad just rolls his eyes when I start spouting off about U2. Mom actually thinks Bono is good looking. She's watched them perform on tv a couple of times and seemed to like it. She won't admit too much to me though. You know, you can't admit that your kids are right.

Yeah my mum says it that way as well, lol! Doh.

A bum *cracks up* As for Hugh Laurie, he'll always be a camp prince to me, no matter what he looks like now ;)

Wow, I'm actually feeling like my parents are kind of hip now. My parents definitely know Bono, and they like U2 actually, especially my classic rock loving dad. Though, I know it's got to have something to do with the guys being from Ireland. My mom is also convinced we're distantly related to the Hewsons because she thinks her cousin Michael "looks just like Bono" (I don't see it, but whatever).

We're just hardcore. There's no way around it. I guess that they assume it should sound like Sonny Bono? Maybe that's why they mispronounce it???

My sisters and I grew up listening to U2 (in the 80s) and so I'm blessed with parents who know how to pronounce Bono. Plus, my sisters and I are obsessed with him so they've heard his name enough to know it.

My friends on the other hand mispronounce it all the time...not because they don't know how, but because they like pissing me off. It works. Maybe because people mispronounce my name as "Susan" when really it's SUZ-ANNE...it's like, get the name RIGHT, folks. Suzanne is pronounced exactly the way it's spelled. Arg. Rant over.
