U2 rocker Bono was so overwhelmed after being awarded an Honorary Doctor of Law he shocked students by confessing his past acts of lawlessness.

The veteran singer told students at the UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA at the ceremony on Monday (24MAY04), he felt unworthy of the honour and revealed a chain of misdemeanours.

He exclaimed, "Wow! I know it's an honour, and it really is an honour, but are you sure? Doctor of Law, all I can think about is the laws I've broken. Laws of nature, laws of physics, laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania."
