I heard the overture to Rossini's Barber of Seville yesterday

...and all I could think of was the Bugs Bunny version - Rabbit of Seville. There are some miserable little excerpts available on YouTube, but I won't post them. Nor any Wagner - Kill the Rabbit, or My Sword and Magic Helmet, just because I don't want to give any money to the Wagner estate. However, since we were just discussing the proper proportions for horses, I will post this:

There you have it.

The title of the piece is What's Opera, Doc?

Considered Jones' masterwork. A little Tannheuser, a little Ring.
