why no nicknames for Adam and Larry?
« on: December 28, 2020, 07:44:54 PM »
i've always found it odd that only "The Edge" and "Bono Vox" made new names for themselves and Adam and Larry didnt. has it ever been stated why?

no idea about Adam really but i think Larry has some fan made nicknames

He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

They weren't really part of that Lypton Village clique, at least not to the same extent as Bono. In fact I don't think even the Edge was a fully paid-up member.

The Edge's first nickname was Inchicore. That would have been a bit weird if it stuck, particularly to native audiences. Most Irish people would be aware that Inchicore is a (gritty, but not terribly rough) suburb of Dublin. Foreigners would have just thought he has a weird name.

I thought Adam was known as the oh-so-gorgeous kimono man who eats cookies and shovels pizza like a pro.
And, Larry...well, he's just that cute little guy.

Larry once told a guy (before he "offed" him)

"Tis better to die with a smile on your face than to live with the fear of death in your heart" 
He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

The truth is that Adam was called 'the cunt' and Larry was called 'the twat'. There you go. Close the thread.

Point taken and I was using it in jest, obviously, but it is not as taboo in the English speaking world outside of the US.

That's true.

I thought for a moment that Big Willy Wonka had made a comeback.

I like where you’re going with this. Bono should have been ‘the pussy’ and Edge ‘the beaver’. Paul McGuinness could have been ‘the snatch’.
