U2 lead singer Bono had a little scare on Wednesday as the “rear hatch” of his private jet fell off en route from Dublin to Germany. The AP went on to report that Bono was “never in any danger” and the plane landed safely. Phew.
Although he was never in any danger, it’s still scary, right? Not funny at all? Well, maybe a little funny, at least according to these Tweeps:
@AP Bono to go shopping for a new hatch, hope he finds what he's looking for

If you don't have a new appreciation for U2's The Fly after Bono's plane fiasco, then I question your fandom!

Some are using the scare to poke fun at Apple, too:

And others see the incident linked to Bono’s implied hypocrisy on taxes and the poor:
The story does not have a completely happy ending, however. Some luggage is missing:
Bono can't claim that his luggage was stolen because if the door is open, it isn't theft. 🙂

I imagine the group of North Germans who discover Bono's luggage are going to have a huge sunglasses and leather jacket party tonight.
