yo what's good, big fan. anyways main issue, you know the crocodile that appears in tales of grotesquely grim bunny? do you know what the hell he is saying, i've listened to it 20+ times and can't figure it out
you know what, i have literally no idea. it SOUNDS like he’s saying “woah, Sushi-Ami-Uni-Ogi: Rise of Ronnus, awesome!”
my version of the video is formatted for square screens so part of the episode is chopped off BUT i looked up the episode on youtube which is formatted for widescreen and you can see the crocodile holding a comic book.
it’s so low-res i can’t make out what it says BUT the first line looks like one word (possible SUSHIAMIUNIOGI) and the second line looks like it’s three to four words (”rise of [something]”)
a youtube comment thinks the crocodile is saying “sushi ami uni ogi roger ronus”. the arthur wiki thinks the crocodile is saying “sushi-omni-ooni-ogie ragju rans”. youtube captions thinks he’s saying “okie raunchy month”. here’s the episode in question. now i’m turning this to all y’all: what do YOU think he’s saying?
In Ile-Ife, regarded as the spiritual center of the Yoruba, there were at least two female Oonis…In Oyo, the political center of the Yoruba for several centuries, a woman named Orompoto succeeded Egunogu as Alaafin…Six women appear in the lists of Ilesha Obas… they reigned at various times from the mid-seventeenth to the mid-eighteenth centuries, but no female ascended the throne after Yeye Ori, the eighteenth Oba, during whose reign constant warfare took place. Three princesses became the Awujale in Ijebu-Ode before 1760: Ore-Yeye (the twenty-third), Ore-Geje (the thirty-first) and Rubakoye (the thirty-seventh). In the early sixteenth century, a woman known as Yeyenirewu assumed power as the fifth Ewi of Ado-Ekiti …she reigned for forty-one years (1511 to 1552)…Nearby in Akure, the twelfth Deji’s daughter, Eye Aro Obabirin succeeded him on the throne
