Morrissey Takes a Stand Against Foie Gras

“It Isn’t Nice and You Shouldn’t Do It”

Yesterday was Morrissey’s fifty-fourth birthday. In case you forgot to get him a gift (Does Hallmark make a “Thank You For All the Ennui” card?), there’s still an item you can help check off his bucket list.

In a blog on his website True to You, the former Smiths bandleader and forever vegetarian and animal rights activist called for UK, department store Fortnum & Mason to stop stocking foie gras, which—interestingly enough—is illegal in the country.

Says Moz:

Congratulations to Prince Charles for banning foie gras from all his functions.

However, unsurprisingly, this most savage and cruel commodity continues to be the favorite “dish” of smiling mother-to-be Kate Muddleton (from whom, in fact, we expect no less.)

Foie gras production is illegal in the UK, yet the ever-so-correct Fortnum and Mason have found suppliers in France who will keep their shelves stocked—possibly with the hope that smiling Kate will wobble in and place an order for her unborn child.

Since Fortnum and Mason are now the only department store in London who are associated with the pitiless atrocity of foie gras, would you please write to them/contact them and exert pressure on them to stop selling such a savage beyond belief “product.”
