    Think about it, he can't even fill a 5,000 seat venue in most North American cities. How could going anywhere in Africa be profitable for him?

    Why doesn't he go to Miami? Does he have something against Cubans, too?

    Maybe he doesn't want Dexter to find him.

    Feedback from the locals I met and have kept in touch with has been excellent.

    I know very well this isn't a serious thread, but in actuality, there are some African fans, just not enough to make it profitable for Morrissey to tour there. These fans that have the means have had to travel outside of Africa to see Morrissey.

    In the late '90s, I hand-delivered a letter to Morrissey, petitioning him to come to the places he's neglected -- the southern hemisphere, namely Latin America and Aus/NZ. The organiser of the petition is a South African of African & Irish heritage, so naturally he wants Moz to sing in his country. About a year later Morrissey mentioned on a radio interview wanting to tour places like Moscow and S. Africa! I was unsure if he meant it as far as S. Africa was concerned or was just taking the piss. It seems the petition was half successful: While Morrissey made it down to South America and returned to Australia and eventually went to Mozcow since the petition, he has yet to tour some part of Africa.

  8. Maybe he just has better things to do? Like baking gingerbread men, for example.

    This thread as a whole is cheap and thoughtless.

    And they were really funny too.
    Someone either doesn't have a sense of humor or is jealous of the cleverness displayed thus far.

    Yeah really, I actually used my brain there for a moment.

    We're so bad and politically incorrect...phooey!

    Nothing wrong with your puns as long as they don't depend on prejudice. But I actually meant the first two pages.

    I don't really know what you mean.
    Do you find the puns offensive or are you disturbed by them because they are not politically correct?
