Not Real, Right? @ 10:07 am

ngroan:
Hey!  I posted this in another forum, but I guess it was a pictures only forum, so they told me to post here.  LOL, I have so much to learn about livejournal.

Could I get an opinion from you guys?  My friend and I have been arguing over this all day-

http://bonoblog.com/

Do you think that this is really Bono's Blog?

I don't think it is, , but my friend (who is NOT a fan) is sure of it.

It can't be, right?  I mean, Bono would never say that stuff about Paul, I heard he's friends with Paul!

Please tell me what you think!  I really need to win this bet!

For a half-dozen easy answers, this clearly can't be bono:

1) If Bono did have a blog, it'd be off of U2.com, and it'd probably be a perk of membership.
2) "It’s obvious the Norwegians are jealous because they can’t rock." I don't think I have to say anything more than just run that quote.
3) "Tony Blair is a wanker"? Yeah, bono's got shit on a politician like that.
4) Bono's gonna use wordpress?
5) I feel strongly that if bono was going to have a blog, he'd use a better photo than a blurry one of him with W.
6) As you state, Bono wouldn't talk like that about McCartney, again, not in a public forum. More so, my understanding is that Bono respects a lot of Sir McCartney's work.

So, no. not bono. But just as a good as Fake Steve Jobs.

Agreed

The Edge's blog ... although never really written in ... is off the U2.com site. Bono may be holier-than-thou at times but I have no doubt his would be too.

Oh come on, really *rolls eyes* this is not even worth placing a bet on it. No way. You can tell by the choice of words alone ;-)

We could, but an ignorant non-U2 fan probably can't.

It's typical of the sort that look for anything they can find to criticize him for trying to improve things, because "he's obviously just doing it for the personal attention. He should just shut up and make music."

If you're a Bono fan, ask yourself, would Bono really write like this? And I don't mean this out of loyalty or anything (although you can't be a fan and not be loyal to the man)- just that if you're a fan, you're more familiar with his style of writing/ speaking. This isn't Bono's style of writing at all. Not only that, Bono is way too shrewd to slag someone off so blatantly in public, even George Bush - as long as George Bush helps his cause. :-)

That's not Bono's blog. I'd know; I'm Bono. Just see my icon. How can I not be Bono?

Obviously fake for the reasons mentioned above. And I'm sure Bono knows the difference between affect and effect.

And really, the entry "Out-diplomatizing the US" should kill all doubts about the authenticity of the blog.

Read his 'Letter from the editor' in the recent vanity fair. The writing styles are completely, completely different.

I'm kind of surprised you'd even consider the possibility it COULD be his. It's such a big parody, even at first glance.
