Meating of the Mind

Nice to be stark raving bonkers, when you’re famous.

The former Smiths front man Morrissey has provoked a storm of protest following comments in which the singer allegedly compared the Norwegian massacre in which 76 people died to the slaughter of animals for fast-food restaurant chains.

Just before performing his single Meat is Murder, he reportedly told the crowd: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead. Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried shit every day.”

It is not the first time Morrissey’s outspoken views on animal rights issues have caused offence. In an interview in Guardian Weekend in September he called the Chinese people a “sub-species” over their treatment of animals and attitude toward animal welfare.–

For a guy swearing by vegetarianism, he sure puts his foot in his mouth a lot.

I wonder what a Paleodieter would say.

    Unshakeable belief in a cause can make you say strange things, but I’ll let another group of musicians explain it, better than I can:

    “It’s a scheme, a dream, a barterine
    We want everyone to think the same
    Because you know what you know is right
    And you feel what you can’t ignore
    And you try so hard to point the blame
    Ashamed- what are we doing this for?
    The cause- we’re just doing it for the cause”

    I agree with him that meat is murder. I like his music. What he said about the Norwegian incident was so incredibly stupid I’m tempted to eat a hamburger and meat-fart on his CDs..
