Morrissey Wins ‘Bad Sex In Fiction’ Award, Compares Airport Security To ISIS
Morrissey is in the news once again, but not exactly for the good reasons… What a mess! First of all, his novel, ‘List of the Lost’, published earlier this year, won a prize. British magazine Literary Review, which rewards an ‘author who has produced an outstandingly bad scene of sexual description in an otherwise good novel’, has declared Morrissey’s novel winner of the 23rd Bad Sex in Fiction Award… ‘The purpose of the prize is to draw attention to poorly written, perfunctory or redundant passages of sexual description in modern fiction, and to discourage them’ they explain. The sex scene between Ezra, one of the athletes of the book, and his girlfriend, Eliza was the part that attracted the judges’ attention, and I must say this is most bizarre thing I have read for a long time, a chaotic verbal-diarrhea sex scene if there was one… Has Morrissey heard of punctuation?
‘At this, Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of sexually violent rotation with Eliza’s breasts barrel-rolled across Ezra’s howling mouth and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it whacked and smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza’s body except for the otherwise central zone.’
But there is much worst, around July, Morrissey said he was sexually assaulted by airport staff at San Francisco Airport, claiming on national TV that the guard ‘went straight for [his] private bits, and then he put his finger down [his] rear cleavage’. On Tuesday, the Morrissey fan site True to You posted this declaration from the Moz himself:
‘TSA have ignored my official and legal and constitutional complaint. From this we gather that TSA stands for Thorough Sexual Assault. If you are traveling through San Francisco International Airport you must be ready for a full sexual attack by people who claim to have your interests at heart. It is unlikely that ISIS would stoop so low.’
I suppose the Nazi comparison was already taken this week by Thom Yorke (who compared Youtube to Nazis Germany) so Morrissey had to upgrade to ISIS, an even more insensitive comment considering what just happened. But Morrissey won’t care much more about the social media outrage more than he cares about an Oxford comma.
