Did they find the fifth element?

It was a risky production unlike any mounted prior on the Met stage, the orchestra first imitating the perpetually beating heart of a man walled-in while in pursuit of wine, and then a soprano singing the plaintive aria of a barely alive woman stuffed up a chimney as her ancestral home was destroyed; however, it certainly was Opera Poe.

Well, he was a choir director. Maybe a former choir boy?
 
2012-03-30 04:18:12 PM  
Once his condition improves and he's able to describe what happened, they'll locate the shooter, and I'm positive the shooter is going to explain that the victim was driving in the left lane at the exact same speed as the guy next to him in the right lane for an extended period of time.

Then police will drop the charges.

I pretty sure, under the law, you don't need a reason to shoot an opera singer.

You, sir, are a demented genius. I lift this bottle of cognac in your honor...

Don't mind if I do.

Alas, I can't take credit. I found it on the Bulwer-Lytton website (new window). Unless you were complementing my awesome Google skills, then by all means continue to lift that bottle, good sir. ;)

Spear and magic helmet ? I prefer the Barber of Seville :

Welcome to my shop
Let me cut your mop
Let me shave your crop!
Daintily! Daint-til-ly!

Hey yoooou!
Don't look so perplexed
Why must you be next
Can't you see you're next?
Yes, you're next!
Yoou're so next!

How about a nice close shave
Teach your whiskers to behave
Lots of lather lots of soap
Please hold still don't be a dope
Now we're ready for the scrapin'
There's no use to try escapin'
Yell and scream and rant and rave
There's no use you need a shaave!

Ooh ouch ouch ooh ouch ooh ooh ouch!

There, you're nice and clean!
Aldough your face looks like it might have gone through a ma-chine!

Oh, where do I get that waabbit?

What would you want with a waabbit?
Can't you see that I'm much swee-ter?
I'm your little Senyeree-ter
Yooou are my type of guy
Let me straighten your tie
And I shall dance for you!

At least the entire audience didn't burst into flames like my last trip to the Met.

While I believe I understand the tenor of your statement, I'm not convinced it has any basses in fact.

What sucks is that I actually know this guy. :(

It's Oregon - so don't forget that it was at 5mph below the speed limit too.
