Image of Gilbert via WikipediaToday’s weird thing, submitted by Barry, is an Italian site with four Gilbert and Sullivan operas as audio files: H.M.S. Pinafore, The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance, and Trial by Jury. Gilbert and Sullivan are well known for creating enjoyably weird operas, and I am honored to help bring these operas to my readers. Enjoy and share the weirdness.
