A grown man with earrings in both ears just has to be the smartest guy in the room…

Back when rock star Bono proposed this incredibly clever way of dealing with ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria was tearing up the Middle East while President *Batteries Not Included whistled a happy tune. But how wrong can it be, to be guided in policy by a celebrity?

Bono: Give ISIS Comedy

Burning people alive, beheading them, tossing them off buildings–these were ISIS’ pastimes. But according to Bono, some good ol’ rib-tickling comedy would’ve set them straight. Eventually a diet of high exposives administered by the U.S. Air Force and allies reduced ISIS to a shadow of its former self.  But surely Henny Youngman or Laurel and Hardy could’ve done it faster!

The thing about celebrities, see, is that they know everything and can just about always be talked into telling you what you should do.
