Start Your Day with Morrissey Motivational Posters

Feel the feels Joan of Arc felt.

When the days grow silent and grey, and it takes a little more than a hot cup of tea to rouse your spirits, reading inspiring quotations can be the reason decide not to pull the covers up over your head and stay in bed. Like Herzog Inspirationals before them, these Morrissey motivational posters are decidedly not those quotes.

Heaven knows these stock photos of waterfalls and sunsets look miserable when accompanying the former Smiths' singer's most cynical barbs. Pictures of puppies panting are set against lyrics like "Why do I smile at people who I'd much rather kick in the eye?" and a tangled bunch of balloons is all the more futile to untangle when paired with sobering thoughts about Moz's own body. It's almost as if you can see his signature pompadour silhouetted in the background of the innocuous images, which were published yesterday on NME Trending. Sweetness, it's no joke that Morrissey motivational posters are all it'll take to remind you that somebody once—past tense—loved you. Check out a few of our favorites below:
