Down On His Luck Guy Surpasses Morrissey on Miserability Index

Morrissey Shrine

If you have five seconds to spare on Craigslist, then he’ll tell you the story of his life.

My unemployment benefits ran out and I have to downsize, so I won’t be able to take the [Morrissey] shrine with me. No more reeling around the fountain, indeed. Comes from a home where smoking was previously allowed and 2 cats lived but they both died this summer. And I might as well tell you that I had to exchange all the stuff my ex-fiancee and I had at each other’s places this morning, since he ended our relationship just as things were looking most grim for me, so I might be sobbing when you come by.

How rough is a life when a person has to even give up a Morrissey shrine? That’s a more miserable life than even Morrissey could imagin – after all, Morrissey still has cats.

But then what’s next beyond that? A Hank Williams song? A Leonard Cohen song? A reality series?

Hopefully this poor soul will go no further down that road. I recommend, to start, that he book himself in at the Y… WCA.
