Morrissey and Bobby Bare Jr.

Even if Bobby Bare Jr. hadn't covered The Smiths' What Differences Does it Make, putting Morrissey and Bobby Bare Jr. together is kind of an obvious choice (given that Bobby's song Monk at the Disco immediately conjures up, at least in my mind, The Smith's Vicar in a Tutu). And while obviousness may destroy comedy, sometimes obvious choices are the best ones.

Morrissey's the guy on the right, isn't he?

Heh, I think Bare Jr. and Morrissey are both equal parts Mailer and Capote. (But really, I just used the pix because it's such a great photo.)
