U2 and LotR: Bono is Bilbo Baggins

The intro to U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)" reminds me of Tolkein's fantasy novels.

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come here to justify
One man to overthrow


Yeah, and

"One man to rule them all, one man to find them,
one man to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."

Has anyone ever looked closely at Bono's rings? Is he turning invisible or teleporting food into Africa? Is this the reason he still seems like kind of an asshole even though he's obviously supposed to be a hero? Has Bono been corrupted by the power of his Precious fame and power?

Hell, I've never seen either Sauron's or Bono's eyes. Just saying.

"Sunnendei, bloody Sunnendei…"
