Что такое опера? Это люди!
Толстые, поющие на сцене.
Люди апплодируют им после представленья
Опера... давненько там я не был.

And on a serious note - is there a reason why "Is this when fat people sing" was not accepted? I reported it, but if there's a reason, I'd like to know.

well that's just rude... but this may be the only thing 90% of people know about opera, though, so fair enough?

This is a great sentence because I can imagine someone saying this. Also, I thought толстые meant Tolstoi at first.
