It was good enough for Sideshow Bob! lol Actually, yes, I do quite like Gilbert and Sullivan.

Well I certainly do! My favourite is that merciless satire of the English establishment, The Mikado. His motto "Let the punishment fit the crime" is also my favourite. (Search too for "A more humane Mikado" and "My object all sublime" to find other performances.)

This clip is the classic setting with the play of fans during the Mikado's introduction. Unfortunately the ending is clipped a bit too soon.

It is traditional to change the words of some of the patter songs to refer to contemporary events and personalities, so each production of G&S is normally a little different.
