Easterly lulz!!

November 23, 2009

Since when did William Easterly bring the lulz?? The accademic,  vocal critic of the international aid system and sworn enemy of Jeffrey Sachs, has just unveiled total ownage of U2 frontman and all round unlikeably human being Bono: 

An expert commission of African leaders today announced their plan for comprehensive reform of music band U2. Saying that U2’s rock had lost touch with its African roots, the commission called for urgent measures to halt U2’s slide towards impending crisis.

“Our youth today are imperiled by low quality music,” said Commission chairman Nelson Mandela. “We will be lending African musicians to U2 to try to refurbish their sound to satisfy the urgent and growing needs for diversionary entertainment at a time of crisis in the global music and financial sectors.”

Definitely check out the rest of the post, but to summarise:
