Another instalment of the ongoing adventures of Cliché World: where every cliché said is seen to be an actual thing that happens. Today, it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings.

Someone at a boxing match heavily in favour of the brutal heavyweight champ says, “it ain’t over ’til the fat lady sings!” and each time it seems the hero has lost the camera pans over to an obese woman in an opera outfit, not singing. Finally, our hero knocks out the champ, and the camera turns to opera lady who, startled, jumps up and starts singing. It’s really over. The hero leaves the ring, surrounded by people who bet against him telling him they knew all along he’d win. He’s taken a horrible beating, and as he’s bleeding all over his heart-of-gold girlfriend, the one bookie who really believed in our hero slips a wad of bills into the singer’s hand.

“Buy yourself something nice,” he says.
