I'm trying to imagine how that conversation would go down. Hmmm....

George: Hey Unka Dick, I gotta try to get this aid to Africa I promised to Bono or he's not going to play at Jenna's wedding.

Dick: Christ, I've had it up to here with these starving kids in Africa. What was it Bono wanted again? Mosquito nets? Jesus, if these kids can't handle a mosquito bite, how are they going to work in our diamond mines? Shit, they're no good to us anyway. And you went along with that? Why is it that you're so focused on helping the hungry and diseased in strange parts of the world?

It's often followed by a "Fuck, George, we've got a poker game to finish!"
