A page from my sketchbook.

Leporello from Mozart's "Don Giovanni," telling Donna Elvira that a square is not a circle.
Papageno from Mozart's "Die Zauberflöte" ("The Magic Flute") with a fuck you to Die Eingeweiten.

He's basically saying a "f*** you" to the Enlightened.

Well, he's not, but in his song he's basically saying "If I eat and drink enough I can reach a feeling of Enlightenment just like you."

Nah, he's not mean, these are people who put him through a bunch of difficult trials for something he didn't even want to achieve.

Haha it's a very funny opera. Unfortunately there aren't really any good versions of it on youtube so I can't show you.

HAHAHA he's singing to a member of the Enlightened that he could FEEL as enlightened as them and NOT be celibate by just drinking a little wine and having nice food! It's his mischievous "fuck you" face.

Rescuing a princess, almost getting captured by a crazy tenor, getting a lock placed on his mouth, being told to shut up all the time, being beat up by a bunch of ladies, having no companions but birds (except for Tamino, but we all know Tamino's a dick), being forced into a set of trials he doesn't even care about, failing to commit suicide, etc. But it all ends well. :D

And it all culminates in the most romantic duet in history: "I love you! Let's get married and have an obscene amount of children!"

HAHAHAHA yes. I love that so much. "Let's have a lot of boys!" "No, let's have a lot of girls!" "Papgenos!" "Papagenas!" haha you can't help but smile every time that song comes on...

I have two things to say. One, that this whole page is awesome. Two, that Leporello's face here will never cease to amuse me. :D
