Cartoon The Goth Scout Opera continues

Elena - The Goth Scout Opera continues

Knowing death is near, Hannelore decides to sing an aria.

This is a little like the Terminator movies...just when you think the movie's ended, the monster comes back to life even more powerful than before.
From Wikipedia ('t_over_'til_the_fat_lady_sings ):

It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings is a proverb, essentially meaning that one shouldn't assume the outcome of some activity (frequently a sports game) until it has actually finished.
This phrase in turn refers to the impression by many of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen (aka the Ring cycle) as a lengthy opera finally concluding in an aria sung by a heavy-set woman dressed like a valkyrie. The Ring cycle is a set of four separate operas (lasting about 15 hours), in which the final scene includes Brünnhilde singing, and then riding onto Siegfried's funeral pyre. The set collapses and the entire cycle ends up in the Rhine river, where it started. The "fat lady" is often illustrated with a horned helmet, a spear, possibly a shield, and possibly blond braids.

I really appreciate all the comments. Thanks. I did check out your cartoons, Jah, now I have to go back with a dictionary. I'm also an editorial cartoonist and this is all very interesting to me. What is happening in Iceland is incredible. I was in Iceland very briefly just a few months ago, on my way to Germany. I would like to go back some day.

A pity that I never got to see Wagner's interpenetration of the Nibelungen. The truth is, neither a fat woman nor a valkyrie does ever appear in the original story. I wonder how he fit that in...

have you already seen my series about the financial crisis in iceland and Björk as Brünhild?

The girl scouts don't even really interact with the plot anymore.
