Hats off to the fan in the front row at a U2 concert. From Counterpunch.org and Greenleft.org:
Bono is at a U2 concert in Glasgow when he asks the audience for some quiet. In the silence, he starts to slowly clap his hands.
Holding the audience in total silence, he says softly and seriously into the microphone, "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies." A voice from near the front pierces the silence: Well, f**ken' stop doin' it then!
