Morrissey will not be touring Canada, in protest of our country’s “barbaric slaughter of over 325,000 baby seals.”
Seriously, good for him, for taking a stance.
However, in return, I vow to not listen to any of Morrissey’s solo albums, in protest of his “barbaric slaughter of the good memories I have of The Smiths”.
Now, truthfully, I don’t know how barbaric Morrissey’s solo albums have been, but I assume my knowledge of his solo career is on par with his knowledge of the realities of the seal hunt.
I honestly don’t have much of an opinion on the seal hunt (even though I posted earlier this month on Paul McCartney’s visit to PEI to sing his Sealy Little Love Song). I am not one to invest much concern into subjective “animal rights” issues, so my inclination is to be in support of it, as I think most of the anti-seal hype is based on emotion rather than fact.
As I said, good for him for taking a stance. I look forward to his announcement of not touring in the USofA as a protest of the annual deer cull. Oh, wait, killing deer isn’t a hot-topic issue. Even though sports hunters kill about 1 million Mule Deer and 2 million White-tailed Deer annually (compared to the 325,000 annual quota of seals).
What’s the matter, Morrissey? Aren’t deer cute enough for you? Have you not seen Bambi?
