CARTOON ANSWER: IN THE LATE ’70s, PAUL DAVID HEWSON STARTED
GOING BY BONO AND – – –
INF DA SHA AE MME MLE = MADE A NAME (for) HIMSELF
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎶 NAME THAT TUNE….SMITH! 🎶
🎶I have climbed the highest mountains…I have run through the fields, Only to be with you…Only to be with you…I have kissed honey lips, Felt the healing in the fingertips….It burned like fire….This burning desire…But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…But I still haven’t found…what I’m looking for…🎶
🎶 The SHADOW of those SUMMER nights with U2 playing soft…
The sound of Bono’s dulcet voice that takes ones heart aloft.
A fan of both the band and he there never was DISMAY
While listening throughout the years to what they had to say…
And besides the great music, Bono works for the INFLOW
Of money for the charities that he has come to know…
Philanthropy he’s noted for, he’s ACTIVE and he’s kind,
So many causes he has helped, you need him, you will find.
He’ll use his social MUSCLE..go above and go beyond
Which is the reason many of us of him, have grown fond.
For so very long I’ve been a fan, his music’s on my shelf…
And Bono has o’er all these years MADE A NAME FOR HIMSELF! 🎶
Today’s words. What can we say? I think INFLOW may cause a few eye rolls…Not only being a compound word, which sometimes causes a tic or two, but it’s also not a commonly known word. And then we have ACTIVE. Definitely a common word, but David’s anagram is exceptionally good. MUSCLE? Muscling in? And maybe, to your DISMAY…Well, enough said! Let me know your thoughts…So, our cartoon and solution. We seem to be at a recording studio, in 1976, the dialogue telling us that BONO is announcing his new name. He settled on Bono, after going by a series of other nicknames. The first? Are your ready for this? Here goes: “Steinhegvanhuysenolegbangbangbang“…! No, I’m not kidding, and Yes, you heard it right! Boy, that would have played out well on a marquee, huh? Anyway, there’s plenty of information on line about both Bono, and his band, U2, for anyone who’d like to learn a little more. The dialogue goes on to show the other band members making a few remarks. (And since I’m going with the year being 1976 here, I may be wrong with the names, but Jeff can always correct me if I am). The line spoken by Dik Evans, about Cher is funny, since she was still using Bono as her last name at the time. Nice touch, Jeff. The Edge (Dave Evans), is the man speaking of wearing a cap, and in the foreground, is Larry Mullen, the drummer. Our question, paraphrased, asks…After Paul changed his name, he started to…MAKE A NAME for HIMSELF! I love it! Very clever, David, well done! ..And Jeff? U2! Great caricatures! In fact, I’m just going to give you the Eye Candy Award today…the whole panel is a keeper! (Although, if that is Bono’s navel I think I see? Well, Jeff…There goes my 🎶VERTIGO🎶)! And since the band is embarking on their EXPERIENCE + INNOCENCE TOUR, I’d say your usual 🎶MYSTERIOUS WAYS🎶 aren’t so mysterious this time around! So, There you have it Folks, Done. And I wish you all a really 🎶BEAUTIFUL DAY🎶…🎶🙋🏻
