I love The Smiths, but I hear everyone talking about Morrissey's hilarious lyrics and I just don't get it. I do think the part in "Half a Person" about asking for a position as a backscrubber at the YWCA is great. But what am I really missing?

Vicar in a tu-tu, Some Girls Are Bigger than Others, Frankly Mr Shankly.
Those 3 are stuffed with laugh out loud lyrics ... and that's just a sample from one album.
Even the Titles are funny.

Well, you're not going to find humor in a Will Ferrell kind of vein....It's a bit more sly. And Mozz is definitely not above poking a little bit of fun at himself.
"This is the last song that I'll ever sing (YEAH!!!)
No I've changed my mind again (AWWWW!!)
Good night, and thank you."
"I turned sickness into (un)popular song."
"So close your eyes, and think of someone you physically admire
And let me kiss you."

Oh, well I see the irony in those, just never thought too much of them being humorous. Vicar in a Tutu is quite funny though.
