We all know a grumpy old man who bitches and moans about everything on Earth. Given the chance these old dodgy geezers can go on for hours at random spewing armchair logic on why the world is such a mess.
Enter my hero Morrissey. I swear I am starting to think he is my long lost brother. As cynical and opinionated as I am only worse (as if possible) because he can go on forever with his logic (which I tend to agree with) and really rip it up.
I hate the Dave and Victoria Beckham as much as the next brain enabled human. Remember Victoria’s psycho fans commenting here on what a good mother she is? I still laugh at that.
But Morrissey has taken a great shot at them and blames them for ‘are all that is wrong with the UK’. Also, let’s not fall victim here. Victoria is nothing but a shriveled up tobacco leaf hanging off the arm of David- she is not a designer or performer. She’s a stick bug. Here’s what Morrissey said:
"I'd… have the Peckhams (Beckhams) dragged to the edge of the village and flogged because they are insufferable to anyone of intelligence, and they actively chase the paparazzi," he ranted in the UK Loaded magazine.
"'We don't seem to realize that David and Victoria Peckham will soon be back and god forbid they will be bestowed with titles Sir and Lady Peckham, this is what's wrong with this country, we don't seem to care.
"[Soccer] often seems to me to have no meaning whatsoever other than just to be there. It can't be elevated any higher because so many footballers are paid £200,000 a week, yet couldn't identify a harp."
The singer refused to call David and Victoria by their real names during the interview, instead referring to them as the 'Peckhams'
How freaking hilarious is that?! The guy is a genius and I swear he belongs right here on rocknyc with us. Snarky bastard.
Wait he went on with other rants!
He also took shots at people who talk too loudly on public transport (when the last time Morrissey was on public transportation? And ME TOO!!) and slammed animal testing – Morrissey is a vegetarian who is so stringent about not eating meat he has banned it from his shows in the past.
The star slammed UK Prime Minister David Cameron too, and fumed about hunting.
'If I kicked a dog I'd be fined £200, yet we're asked to accept Cameron shooting down a majestic stag just for a hoot. Weird world, isn't it," he said.
Guy becomes more Godlike in my eyes every day. High five, bro.
