Morrissey spotted getting into Mini with bumper sticker of his OWN FACE - Manchester Evening News
Is it really so strange?


It takes a bold man to be driven around in a car with a bumper sticker of his own face.

But, tonight, for reasons í won't go into, í was temporarily physically incapable of getting to the wireless to avert the dial.

Hence, í heard the opening 5 minutes or so of this ~

~ "The Wilsons Save The World" ~ a 'comedy' about "a modern family attempting to live their best ethical life" (yes, really) co-written and starring horse-faced toff rent-a-comic Marcus Brigstocke.
The set-up for to-night's episode "You Can't Do That Anymore" (astonishingly the 2nd epsiode of the 2nd series) is that Dumb Dad Wilson is singing along to "There is a Light that Never Goes Out", in a faux Morrissey voice, when his Millenial Brat Daughter enters and tells him to stop, pointing him in the direction of a website that lists all of Morrissey's 'crimes'.
