What's In Morrissey's Trader Joes Bag?

A cashier at my local Trader Joes in South Pasadena saw my Smiths "The Queen Is Dead" shirt yesterday and proceeded to tell me that the Pope of Mope sometimes shops at their Pasadena Lake Avenue store. Now although I'm not as big of a fan of solo Morrissey as I am the OG Smiths (my favorite band of all time, by the way), I still got the teeniest bit excited and couldn't help but wonder what the Moz leaves with in his reusable canvas tote (if he uses one, that is, which I'm sure he does) Inspired by fellow food tweeter TriceraPops who thinks our favorite pompadoured wailer loves their Frozen Chocolate Lava Cakes, I think it'd be so much fun if we turned this into a game/poll/brainstorming session of sorts. So what do you think Morrissey buys at Trader Joes? My money is on Two Buck Chuck, frozen Meatless Meatballs and Joes-O's.

I think he buys the Swiss Milk Chocolate, because when you're as depressed a Morrissey always is you must NEED chocolate!

Did you say meatless meatballs?

I'm a gonna be sick!

Pat said...

That's hilarious. I'm not sure I would recognize him though. I think he buys Jo's Jo's, broccli wokly and Pirate's Booty.

What does Morrissey buy? What difference does it make?

Oh, and meatless meatballs are murder!

He is my all time favorite - yes, even solo.

I'm gonna say he buys Two Buck Chuck. Maybe he drank one. It became four. And when he fell on the floor he drank more.

What a long way for a set up. Must get to the Lake Ave store asap...

I speculate he's trying to save a few bucks by getting his supply of Morningstar meatless sausage veg for his bangers and mash. They're at least 2 buck cheaper there than at the supermarket.

i would think that he's a fan of 'everyday' items, pre-cut mirepoix for example. one thing is sure, whenever TJs runs out of something he's looking for, he's PISSED......and then becomes depressed.

good stuff - glad our Twitter game led to some comical responses above!

Morrissey wouldn't actually *buy* any thing.

Shoplifters of the world, unite! Duh!

Ok, maybe only I find that humorous.

That joke isn't funny anymore.

i have been racking my brain, desperately searching for something witty to say.

i got nothin'.

Tricerapops said...

damnit! WM took my witty response (both of them).

I don't really have a clever response since I'm not entirely sure who this Morrissey is and what he sings, but I did want to chime in with a Homer Simpson mmmmmm for those meatless meatballs...
