Amusing U2 joke... @ 10:00 am

eeviolet:
Hi all,

I read this site called, "Overheard in New York." Today, I found this amusing piece of conversation:

"Tony Blair Gets Blamed for All the Disasters"

Girl: How old is that guy?
Guy: Who, Bono? 40, 45.
Girl: Oh, and where are they from, England?

--7 train
Overheard by: Jack Kennedy

Crazy people thinking U2 is from England...Ha.

Someone once thought I was from England. Which is utterly bizarre given that I have a pretty obvious Scottish accent.

Anyone that sounds like Scrooge McDuck sounds Scottish to me. :-X Living in Florida, I've only come across like... one person. She was a regular customer at the store where I worked, and I loved talking to her.

Lol! I don't sound like Scrooge McDuck - I'm not convinced he was even Scottish ;) But yeah I can see how you wouldn't meet many in Florida, we perfer to live near the Arctic Circle. For some reason that's always beyond me. :|

I'll record you some Scottish words. ;) Lmao.

If not Scrooge McDuck, then Groundskeeper Willie from the Simpsons? XD

Okay, I'll stop the stereotyping, hehe.

I've never heard that one, lol! There was a piece about it in the paper last week saying how Scots don't care about portrayals like that because we take the piss out of ourselves more than anyone else anyway, lol! True, that.

That's pretty much the greaest website ever.

my personal favorite:

Over heard on St Paticks Day

Girl #1: I have nothing green to wear on Thursday.
Girl #2: What do you mean, you don't own any green? You're Irish! Green is our color! Along with beer.

That sounds like something I would say, actually. Maybe "Girl #2" was actually me...

I don't live in NY, though. ;)

I love that site. :)

What's funny is that the 7 goes through Woodside, Queens--one of the most Irish neighborhoods in New York City. I'm surprised these people didn't get dressed down good and proper!
