I thought he hung himself whilst jerking off a long time ago.

It's my girlfriend, she's in a coma. I know, I know, it's serious.

Miriam, it was really nothing.

Careful Crooner, once word like this gets out, everyone in your path is going to fake faint for free water and kindness.

if you're going to talk about a guy dying during auto-erotic asphyxiation, you probably don't need to church it up with words like "whilst."

They say that Morrissey is queer but I think it's more incestuous.

Now I know how Joan of Arc felt.

I'm glad sorrow didn't come in the end.

"Rescues" her from what, Submittard? The mean old bookstore carpet? FTA: "She had just lost her bearings and was fine." Take your hero tag and cry over it not applying to your blessed Morrissey, you dumbfark.

I think the mods must be drunk again...lots of weird greens and odd Fark-things happening today.

When she came to she looked at him and said "Would you like to marry me? And if you like you can buy the ring!"

Correction: it was Alanis Morissette and it happened in dictionary section
 
2012-09-26 02:36:30 PM  
I guess Morrissey didn't want to meet her at the cemetery gates.

Reel around the book store

God, he really, really helped her.

I'm currently reading the Douglas Copeland book, so I'm really getting a kick, etc.

Damn it, Moz. I swore you off due to your comments after the Utoya massacre, but there you go helping little old ladies and warming my 1/4-Irish heart. Bah.

Sorry.

Look, I get that this is Fark, but is this really news? Guy does something any decent human would do - what difference does that make?
 
2012-09-26 03:19:39 PM  
Gasp, who would have thought that a human would behave like a human?

Of course he tried to assist the woman. It's not like he's Lindsay Lohan or something.

Are you saying she was a fat girl?

weiner dog *Douglas Coupland Sorry.

Not as sorry as you-I was a big fan of Coupland's stuff but good God is that one a slog, after "Miss Wyoming" he was interviewed begging for an editor as I recall...

Came here to say this. +11 for the pic.

Did he make it out okay?

Or did he end up with a thorn in his side?
 
2012-09-26 04:26:33 PM  
It was really nothing.
 
2012-09-26 04:36:33 PM  
Rescued?No, kind and helpful yes.
 
2012-09-26 05:29:47 PM  
Little did he know that little old lady was actually Robert Smith.

No, but they did hang the dj.

One of my favorite anecdotes about Morrissey was from Kirsty MacColl when she released her album "Titanic Days". She wrote the album while suffering from depression and said she finally started to snap out of her funk when her friend Morrissey had been coming around to visit her. She said she knew she had reached a low point if MORRISSEY was cheering HER up and vowed then that she'd start to turn herself around.

Moron.

Word of advice folks:

If an elderly person takes a fall, don't try to move them or help them up. Call 911 or whatever emergency number you have for the country. Get the professionals in to do a damage assessment.

Moving an elderly that has fallen can lead to a serious increase of damage to the person.

You are thinking of Rizzoli. The Strand's floor is a collage of old creaky floorboards and disgusting tile.
 
2012-09-26 08:58:42 PM  
Who is Morrissey? Isn't he that guy from The Doors?
 
2012-09-26 10:15:44 PM  

casual disregard: Who is Morrissey? Isn't he that guy from The Doors?


No, he's the guy who has that one song about a Moondance.

i think i once saw twinkie with band-aids over his nipples in a video. that was seconds before i gouged my eyes out.

To die by your side, well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine.
 
2012-09-26 11:21:14 PM  
That's okay. She was old, and she would have died anyway.
 
2012-09-27 01:51:49 AM  
Like most Americans, the old lady never heard of Morrissey and his band

"The Smiths? Didn't you open for The Weavers back in 1949?"
