The thing with books is, no matter how well written they may be, you can’t dance to them. And Morrissey’s autobiography Autobiography is no exception.

Thankfully the British comedian Peter Serafinowicz – of Shaun of the Dead and Darth Maul’s voice fame – has come up with a solution.

And here’s page 2:

Granted, he’s only done two pages so far, and he’s already used the “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore” gag in the video description for page 2, so it’s probable we’re not going to get as far as the footnotes.

He’s clearly started something he couldn’t finish.
