If there's anything we've learned about Morrissey in his years as an indie icon, it's that he takes his values seriously.
So no one should have been too surprised when the animal-rights activist canceled a planned appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's late night show Tuesday after he learned that the cast of "Duck Dynasty," A&E's reality show about a duck-hunting family business, would also be guests.
Kimmel, however, took the slight a bit personally. He devoted a swath of the show to mocking Morrissey -- and vegetarians in general -- with a skit featuring the stars of "Duck Dynasty." He said he kept the show's stars on as guests "because they have guns," and cast them in a bit where they hawked fake "carrot calls" for luring vegetables, which they referred to as "yuppie food."
