If you paid $55 for a floor ticket to Friday night's show at the Joint, you spent

* 92 cents per minute (60)

* $3.06 per song (18)

Morrissey @The Joint

* $11 per Smiths song (5: "This Charming Man," "Ask," "Cemetry Gates," "Is It Really So Strange?," "How Soon Is Now?")

* $9.17 per gong-bash during "How Soon Is Now?" (6)

* $55 per chest-baring shirt removal (1)

* an indeterminate amount per encore ... since dividing by zero is impossible
