I like Patience a lot better than The Mikado.

I shall with cultured taste
distinguish gems from paste
and hi diddle diddle will rank as an idyll
if I pronounce it chaste

Not to mention "though the Philistines may jostle you will rank as an apostle in the high aesthetic band, if you walk down Picadilly with a poppy or a lily in your medieval hand." Bunthorne is fun.
