Oh, now it's getting out of hand, people. What has the late night TV world come to when the former frontman of the Smiths -- Morrissey! -- gets in a name-calling contest with the current frontman of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"?

Here's Morrissey's statement - as posted in Salon -- in response to Jimmy's statement -- as posted on his own show -- that he was happy to let Morrissey back out on Tuesday because the "Duck Dynasty" guys had "guns..." Wondering if Johnny Marr, Mike Joyce, Andy Rourke, Craig Gannon, Dale Hibbert have anything to say about this?

I was disappointed with last night’s "Jimmy Kimmel Show" wherein our smiling host managed to ridicule depression (70% of Americans have experienced depression according to the National Institute of Mental Health). He then found time to ridicule healthy eating (the obesity epidemic in the U.S. costs $147 billion per year in medical expenditure), and he also ridiculed the notion that animals should be entitled to the possession of their own lives. Furthermore, he found time to jokingly promote gun-ownership – hugely amusing for the parents at Sandy Hook, no doubt. He also promoted his special guests "Duck Dynasty" – who kill beings for fun. None of the above issues are, of course, as important as Jimmy Kimmel himself, who has finally revealed his show to have an overwhelming loss of meaning. Tune in and relive the intellectual fog of the 1950s.
