I picked a bad year to give up meth and Red Bull for Lent

Woke up with this song in my head:

Question: is it just me, or does Bono look here a little bit too much like the chick singer for the Pretenders?

Which leads me to this part of Friday Stupid: the derivative music video genre, where yahoos with too much time on their hands reenact famous music videos:

I've always had a chuckle that Rush uses this song as his main theme: it's a bitching song with a great hook.

Here's the antidote:

Aiiiiiie, that's the good stuff.

FRIDAY PENANCE UPDATE: Obviously, I didn't give up being a snarky jackass for Lent this year, but I'm trying to make amends. So I just ordered this for Mrs. P. to make up for my impertinent posting of the Pope dressing like a cowboy:


The Abbot? He's getting the JP2 bobblehead:


You know I love you guys, even though I scored a "B-UTT-HD" on Meyers Briggs.

Yips! from Robbo: That's our Steve-O! Yip! Yip! Yip!

Yes! Every morning I will pray in front of it (dulia, not latria, of course) and conclude with "Sancto Subito!"

I'm not a guy. Trust me on that one.

This song was written by Bono about his mother after she died suddenly, but I always thought of it as applicable to Mary as well.

Also the Pretenders chick is Chrissy Hyndes, and yes the resemblence is there (sorry Chrissy).
