“I used to date an opera singer, but it didn’t work out. She was all mi, mi, mi”

Opera singers sometimes rehearse with “mi, mi, mi” ("me, me, me"). “Old gag: Do you have to practise your opera singing so loud?  You’re so selfish. It’s all ME ME ME ME ME ME ME...” was posted on Twitter on September 3, 2009.

This is frequently made into a dating joke. “I met an opera singer yesterday who was really up herself, it was all ‘me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me’ with her” was posted on Twitter on October 1, 2011. “Sad news just in, my mate Dave has broken up with his Opera Singer girlfriend. He said ‘She was just all Me Me Me Me Me’” was posted on Twitter on November 18, 2012. “I once dated an opera singer but she was all ‘mi,mi,mi’” was posted on Twitter on May 17, 2013.

Opera singers’ vocal exercises are so self-obsessed. It’s all mi-mi-mi. #weakendpun
