Got to be one of the funniest Smiths songs; if only because of that unbearably twee, cheesy acoustic guitar and Morrissey smily sarcastic vocals :D I remember in "The Importance.." docu where Bono said that he almost crashed his car laughing when he heard it on the radio. A 10

No kidding, I mean someone gave it a ONE? WTF? What kind of terrible drugs are they on and where can I get some?

Does any Morrissey/Smiths song deserve a 1?

The lowest I would score any Morrissey song would be a 4 for Harsh Truth Of The Camera Eye, All The Lazy Dykes, and The Slum Mums

A 1?!! A 1!!??? That's not right!...the lowest anything of Moz's could be rated is a 4 for sure, as SNS22 brought out....
really for me, it would be a 5.

As for this song, I have heard it a million times, but still love it! Definite 10!!!!!!!!!!
One of my first favorite Smiths songs. :D

This one always takes me back to eight grade when I did a lipsynch to the song with some girl lying on a mattress in the background with a flower in the hands...only they annouced the song as "GOPHER in a coma"....idiots

Why can't non-believers see the humour?
Why can't they see that every line is dripping with insolent sarcasm :p

Dunno...but my mom's reaction was funny to me....:D
When people don't know the meanings of the songs, and what they hear and what they think are two different things, it makes me laugh...:D

yeah, my mom hated it, which i alway thought was funny
since it makes my step dad laugh
and he came back from a long coma
so if anyone has the right to get pissed about it, he does...
