Eight more hours of this? I think I've had enough.

VENICE - There is no Wahnfried ("Peace/freedom from delusion/madness," in German), in Valhalla these days.

A sheaf of manuscripts, dated 1882, has been found in an attic next door to where Richard Wagner spent his last days. Wagner died February 18, 1883, of a heart attack. Prolific right to the end, scholars speculate that the work, entitled "Das Clousterfokken" was composed at approximately the same time as his opera "Parsifal".

"Clousterfolkken" opens 1000 years after the end of "Gotterdamerung". Siegfried and the rest of the gang have found the Holy Grail, but there's a problem - the Rheingold has gone flat and there is no good beer to be had anywhere.

Of course, in the end, the fat lady dies, but not before singing her ass off .

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
