THE TWITTERDILLY ARMS & MORRISSEY'S NO.1's FROM JAN 10TH - COINCIDENCE, NOTHING ELSE!
4. Which tweeter introduced me to Dante, and what Morrissey song mentions Dante?
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE LET ME TWEET WHAT I WANT
6. On July 4th 2012, Morrissey's wikipedia web page was updated, making reference to the 'Blue Rose Society', comparing it to Oscar Wilde's 'Green Carnation'. The following morning, ALL reference to Blue Rose and Green Carnation on wiki had disappeared again, but WHAT did Morrissey wear in concert THAT night (July 5th)?
ANSWER: Morrissey wore a green carnation at Les Ardentes Festival in Liege. Users of the Morrissey-Solo website recognised that this was a reference to Oscar Wilde, but failed to link it to the Blue Rose/Green Carnation reference that they had read just the previous day on Wikipedia. It was just a coincidence anyway!
7. What is the twitter user name of the FIRST ever person to take a blue rose to a Moz concert? (CLUE: It happened in Japan)
ANSWER: '@Tokyo_Katie', who took a blue rose on May 3rd 2012 at Ebisu Garden Hall, Tokyo.
TOKYO KATIE - FIRST BLUE ROSE
ANSWER: In a parody article on MorrisseysWorld, written in 2011, Morrissey wrote, "I might continue to wear the finger plaster, even after the finger has healed, to represent my journey of personal suffering." (Not the exact quote, but as the blog has disappeared, I can't remember it!) Morrissey has indeed continued to wear the finger plaster on stage from time to time, but it is just a coincidence.
ANSWER: Caramac. In the parody piece 'My Live Tour Journal Sudamerica', Our Mozzer wrote about a large shipment of Caramac arriving at his hotel. This had followed an unexplained 'tweet-pic' posted by '@MorrisseysWorld' of a Caramac bar.

10. What was significant about the shirt Morrissey was wearing when he took to the stage at his birthday concert this year?
ANSWER: It was covered in roses (see picture under question 8)
ANSWER: Morrissey is alleged to have taken his hair trimmings away with him. The shop proprietor posted on his Facebook page that Morrissey had visited his shop, but he later removed the posting.

12. On April 22nd, who labelled the author of MorrisseysWorld a "deluded and mentally unstable nutcase" on the Morrissey-solo website?
ANSWER: Uncle Skinny aka Peter Finan. Uncle Skinny is a moderator on Morrissey-Solo, and is vehement in his hatred for MorrisseysWorld. He believes that 'I' am the author, although he has never offered up any explanation as to how I could possibly be making Morrissey wear a blue rose tie, make 'OO' signs on Conan, predict concerts in Argentina etc. When the promoters of Les Ardentes Festival listed '@itsMorrissey' as Morrissey's twitter account, I tweeted them to say that they had made a mistake. Uncle Skinny took umbrage to this, and wrote on Solo, "that cunty blogger had the shame, the gall, the effrontery, to contact the promotors of the Belgian festival." Former MorrisseysWorlders Rosy Mires, Stillicling and Nurse Cathy assure me that Skinny is a thoroughly nice man. Whilst he and his website continues to criticise Morrissey, and whilst he refers to me as a cunty blogger, I will just have to take their word for it.
ANSWER: In my interview with Morrissey on May 17th, I asked, "All seems to have gone quiet on the NME court case, is it still going ahead, and if so when?" Morrissey answered "...", and just four hours later, TTY posted a statement saying that the court case was scheduled to start on July 16th. This was of course, just ANOTHER coincidence in a long list of many!
NME - EVENTUALLY APOLOGISED TO AVOID COURT
15. On August 22nd 2011, what did the MorrisseysWorld blogsite ask fans to wear to the upcoming US concerts?
ANSWER: A single white or red rose, devoid of thorns.
ANSWER: Morrissey's official website, True-To-You.net. The statement read, "Morrissey would like to stress that he has absolutely no affiliation with the site called MorrisseysWorld, and that the views expressed on MorrisseysWorld blog and Twitter page are not Morrissey's views, and do not come from Morrissey. Morrissey has no connection with this site. Please beware." A VERY strong denial, and yet a number of those who say that Morrissey is NOT behind MorrisseysWorld, now say he 'goes along with it', as it is their ONLY way of explaining the 'OO' signs, blue rose tie etc. The truth is, they don't know WHAT to believe.
MORRISSEY'S 'CONNECTION' REMAINS WITH TRUE-TO-YOU WEBSITE OWNER JULIA RILEY AND NOT WITH THE AUTHOR OF MORRISSEYSWORLD, WHOEVER IT MAY BE
ANSWER: Boy George. Morrissey1959 once said in the MorrisseysWorld chat room that Boy George KNOWS that Morrissey is behind the blog. As to whether this is true or not, who knows? As Morrissey once famously said,"I lie a lot, it's really useful."
BOY GEORGE POPS AROUND TO MORRISSEY'S FOR A CUPPA
18a. What 'parody' twitter account had the below profile picture?
ANSWER: '@BiebersSadWorld'. It was one of a handful of parody accounts created by 'Our Mozzer'.
ANSWER: Johnny Marr. '@MorrisseysWorld' had tweeted to say that @Johnny_Marr was a great guitar player, and also a singer. Marr replied by saying "I am not worthy of your wit. Blocked."
JOHNNY MARR - "ALSO A SINGER"
19. Which member of The Smiths left a long winded comment on my blog in October 2011, saying, "I do regret that it had to go to trial and I'm also sorry that we all had to go through the process, but in my opinion, I wasn't wrong to take up proceedings in the first place, nor will I ever be?"
ANSWER: Mike Joyce. Principals are all well and good, but while Joyce maintains this stance, would Morrissey EVER consider sharing a stage with him again? Er, probably not.
INTERNET DJ & FORMER DRUMMER, MIKE JOYCE
ANSWER: Trouble Loves Me
ANSWER: Hyde Park
"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IN GOAL TONIGHT, BOZ BOORER"
ANSWER: Justin Bieber's age. Nobody else has offered any other explanation for this bizarre quote.
ANSWER: Bloody Welsh
CLEMENTI AND BRAND - SEPARATED AT BIRTH OR IN THE CROWD OF THE SMITHS CONCERT IN 1985?
ANSWER: Russell Brand
ANSWER: As mentioned in question 6, it was Les Ardentes Festival in Liege on July 5th 2012. Would it have created more debate had it been worn at a UK concert? Perhaps.
ANSWER: The photograph is of 'dancer' Bobby Britt, who was arrested in 1927 for being an 'importuner of men'. Sergeant Arthur Spencer described him as a "nancy type". It was the mysterious '@dotdotdotpause' tweeter who identified Britt. Perhaps Our Mozzer just liked the picture.
ANSWER: The concert was on March 17th 2012 in Bogota, Columbia. It was the very last concert of the South American tour and MorrisseysWorlders had just about given up hope of Morrissey taking a rose. During the song 'You Have Killed Me', Morrissey wasn't just handed the Columbian rose, he actually leant right into the audience to pluck it from a fan. The rose appears red because of the lighting, but it was actually white. In Oscar Wilde's 'The Nightingale and the Rose', a white rose is turned red with the blood of a nightingale. Just a coincidence of course.
ANSWER: Morrissey was presented with the 'Key to the City' of Tel Aviv by Mayor Ron Huldai on July 21st 2012. Why WAS Morrissey wearing what has since been described as a "gaudy" blue rose tie? Could it be that Morrissey really IS 'playing along' with the MorrisseysWorld blog that he has described as "dangerous" and told his fans to "beware" of? Oh the contradiction of it all!
ANSWER: Lil the dancer.
ANSWER A: It proved beyond all doubt that Morrissey really is behind MorrisseysWorld.
ANSWER B: It proved nothing whatsoever.
