Morrissey Compares Meat Eaters To Paedophiles

Morrissey, the whacky, outspoken former lead singer of The Smiths, is now comparing meat-eaters to paedophiles.

In a Q&A for his fan site true-to-you.net, Morrissey was asked “what is it that prompted you to stop eating meat?”.

The response: “I see no difference between eating animals and paedophilia. They are both rape, violence, murder. If I’m introduced to anyone who eats beings, I walk away. Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you “Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,” well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers”.

He was also asked what new laws he would like to see passed for animals to which he responded with a bizarre answer citing The Queen, Jamie Oliver and Cilla Black.

“I would like the Queen of England to be asked why she wears an electrocuted bear-cub on her head. I would like to ask all so-called celebrity chefs why they believe that animals should have no right to live. If Jamie ‘Orrible is so certain that flesh-food is tasty then why doesn’t he stick one of his children in a microwave? It would taste the same as cooked lamb. The singer Cilla Black recently appeared on television telling us how she was preparing leg of lamb for dinner, and since a lamb is a baby, I wondered what kind of mind Cilla Black could possibly have that would convince her that eating a baby is OK”.

The Morrissey solution, “I would like all governments to be forced to engage an Animal Protectionist MP. I would like a complete zoo and circus ban. I would like every television commercial that promotes ‘flesh-food’ to be followed by a commercial showing how the living pig and the living cow become the supermarket commodity, step by step”.

As for a Smiths reunion, Morrissey he said, “As an entity, I have no interest in the Smiths, so as long as I’m not asked about the Smiths, I won’t slip into permanent unconsciousness. And that’s a promise”.
