ø¤º°Unorthodox Muse°º¤ø

My mom (who is 68) has a (snail mail) penpal who lives in Ireland. She just recently told her penpal that I like U2 and the man told her something I never knew. Now, there have always been discussions on the ng's (news groups) and such about how U2 came up with the name U2 and I was just wondering if this could possibly be one way they came up with the idea.... He said in the most recent letter --- and this is how he wrote it which was hard for me to understand, "U2 was code number of unemployment application forms used during their period of unemployment when seeking benefit." I don't know if he meant during the 70's or what... if you get my drift. Anyway, I thought it was interesting and I thought I would share it... and if anyone from Ireland can confirm this I'd be glad to know. The guy she writes to is around her age (60 something) and he is pretty intelligent. They have been writing to each other for years now. It is sweet =)
