  3. You didn't! Whether he's a tenor a a baritone, I love the way he turns purple and then yellow before losing his collar, his false shirtfront and his trousers while holding the high note at the end.

    I was about eleven years old last time I saw this. I have fond memories of it because my best pal's cocker spaniel went apeshit when we wept with laughter during the aforementioned sustained high note.
