Watch Colbert Try to Talk Morrissey Into Eating Meat

New, 2 comments

Morrissey, he of vigilant vegetarianism and sad, sad songs, stopped by the Colbert Report and in the clip below admits he made the set go meat-free while he was there. Stephen Colbert then spends the rest of the interview trying to figure out when it might be okay to eat an animal: "What about an animal that's already dead? Like a cow that's been sentenced to death for a murder? Or a pig that committed suicide from listening to too many of your songs?" (Morrissey tells him not to joke about that last one.) "I know a lamb that's a fucking asshole, says Colbert. "Could I eat that lamb?"
