This was in The Fitz Files a column in the Sydney Sun Herald on Sunday, I've only just gotten around to posting it now. It may or may not have actually happened, but I was amused. You'd honestly had to have no sense of humour, if you don't see the joke in it...

Three months ago, U2 are at the height of a sell-out concert in Glasgow, when Bono asks the audience for total quiet. When silence is achieved, he starts to slowly clap his hands. Now, while continuing to clap his hands together, he leans forward and says portentously into the microphone: "Everytime I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies." A voice from near the front pierces the silence: "Well, fookin' well stop doing it then."
