What does one wear to Ride the Valkyries?
A silk dress? Something with "richness of the material, width, ruches, flounces, bustles, ribbons ..."? Apparently Richard Wagner, the neckbearded
, hero to Adolph Hitler
may have had a little skin problem
. Or maybe a fetish
. Or both. Either way, he did so like the feel of satin against his skin. Perhaps Wagner should have gone with thevelvet
. In any case, this news will make Fritz Freleng
appear even more
brilliant for having cross-dressed Bugs Bunny
in the 1945 cartoon Herr Meets Hare
(where Bugs appears as a Wagnerian heroine dancing with Hermann Goering).
