Wheel! Of! Fortune! @ 09:40 pm

Random U2-ness of the day:

So I was watching Wheel Of Fortune with my hip parents tonight. Every time I watch, I geekily hope they'll have a U2-related puzzle. And today was the day! The puzzle was "ROCK STAR & HUMANITARIAN BONO". It was a prize puzzle too, so the contestant won a trip to Ireland.

Then my mum asks, "Is Bono from Ireland?" ... "What's his first name?" - to which I reply with "Yeah, he's Irish. His first name's Paul." So she says "Paul Bono?" My response: facepalm.

I love U2 related questions on game shows. During college week on Who Want's To Be A Millionaire, one of the questions was "U2's 2004 album was titled "How to Dismantle" what?", I don't remember what all of the choices were, but the girl playing claimed she liked U2, then said she wasn't sure, but she thought it was "atomic bomb", and ended up asking the audience.
And then for some reason I signed up for MillionaireIM which is where they IM you the ask the audience questions, and you answer them (as part of the AOL audience). The other day the question they sent me was "What rock band shares it's name with a famous spy plane?" The choices were Aerosmith, U2, Jefferson Airplane, and something else that I've forgotten.

LOL, your mom's response is too cute.

I watch Wheel of Fortune with my grandma when I go for a visit. Too bad tonight wasn't one of those nights. I would've squee'd like an idiot :P

Paul Bono makes sense, if you think about Cher and Madonna. Both of them use their real names (although their first names).
