  • I wish I was! Wagner is a nice guy but... It's just nicer to imagine:

    - What... Is your name?
    - Parsifal, leader of the grail brotherhood!
    - What... Is your quest?
    - I must redeem my knights!
    - What... Is your favorite color?
    - Blue. No, yelAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

  • There is a street named with this word here in Albuquerque. Whenever I drive by, I burst into gigglefits. It would appear to be the name of a Wagnerian opera, but I don't know about all that, I just think it sounds awesome. I pronounce it, of course, as "parsey-full."
