So, Irish rockers U2 decide to release their a compliation. They call it ’18 Singles’, since (as you may be able to predict) it comprises their 18 best singles.
However, as the BBC News site comments:
“Brilliantly, the UK version of the CD has a bonus track – which instantly renders the album’s title nonsensical.”
I’m picturing a young female executive at their record company, spread-eagled over the boadroom table for a whipping this afternoon.
Henceforth, whenever I give a girl “six of the best”, I think I should include a bonus stroke.
…says he, reflecting momentarily on a rather intense scene this past weekend when a young lady’s defiant attitude resulted in her six being of the *very* best, as she was held in position.
