Stop that, it's silly! Another U2 conference announced
« on: August 09, 2020, 12:28:30 PM »
Here at Talku2 we think U2 conferences are about as important as the society for putting things on top of other things, but for anyone who thinks they would like to contribute:

"America is not just a country, itís an idea"

I'd happily attend to hear someone spend about 15 mins giving a talk on why this absolute bullshit makes Bono sound like a complete prick.

You did well last year, you put 12 things on top of other things.......Now, Riffy is a problem! In the entire 2019, she did not put a single thing on top of another thing.

LOL, I'd wager you've put a few things on top of other things in your time, but I'd wager yer mum has you beat in that department.

Not sure if you got the reference, it's monty python (I think you probably did)

As prime secretary in the ministry of silly walks, I approve this conference.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

I've been a few times.  The first time was in the early eighties when we went to Alton Towers.  The queue for the Corkscrew was horrendous.

I feel like this is like that old SNL skit with William Shatner and the Trekkies.

Now, nobody likes a U2 conference more than I do, except perhaps my wife and some of her friends. Oh yes, and Captain Johnson. Come to think of it, most people like a U2 conference more than I do, but that's beside the point.
