Comment: I recently went to disneyland and watched fantasmic. I noticed
that at one point Ursala says "I will take matters into my own tentacles"
or something to that extent. However, a couple of us and I heard
Testicles instead of tentacles. We were sure of it. I came home and did
some research and others agree. Finally, I went on youtube and watched
the video. The link is here.

The line is said at 17.09 i believe. She actually says Tensticles. But
if there is background noise, the listener will actually here nothing be
testicles. To test this, say aloud "blah blah blah blah" while watching
the clip.

This was no coicidence, and the "s" sound was no cymbal crash either. The
way they perfectly inserted that S sound in to make the word go either
ways was done too carefully.

Sure does sound like it. But why would they say that? It makes no sense (Ursala being female). Probably just the way the audio came out.

I could make a "slip of the tongue" joke, but I'm too good for that.

ETA: I listened, and it sounds like "tentacles" to me.

I considered that too, but since this seems to be a prerecorded part of the show, you'd think they would have done another take.

Okay, I also think she said, "Ursula will have to take matters into her own testicles." Which makes no sense. Even it _were_ a guy saying that, why? Do guys regularly use their testicles when making big plans or decisions? (Okay, don't answer that...)

Just one more in the long line of Disney artists, script writers and actors trying to subliminally undermine the family values of the empire.

And don't females just have testicles "tucked inside." We know the truth - you're not that different and make decisions with things other than brains [Big Grin]

Ahhhh - had to post again quick. Didn't want 666 on my counter - otherwise I'd have to ride thunder mountain and the ghost of the person tht died in Pirates would steal my soul and leave me to wander in space mountain while listening to an eternal replay of small world.

When you are listening for something, you are more likely to hear it.

Try watching this video, while reading the captions: http://www.rathergood.com/chicken/

You will hear what the captions say, even though it's wrong.

While you are there, check out the rest of the stuff for some good natured mentally questionable fun and entertainment.

Didn't work at all for me -- but maybe it's because I'm way too familiar with that song...

Try some of the other songs, that was just the one I remember, several of the others are just as good.

Okay, I re-listened to it last night. All I could hear that time was "tentacles."

Am I the only one who's creeped out by the video, though? The opening music just sends shivers up my spine. And the Ursula part just squicked me out a little. Actually, considering the tentacles' place in Asian culture, it's starting to sound even more jarring than when I thought she was just saying testicles. [Frown]

I know this is sarcasm, but yes, women do have testicles tucked inside. They're called ovaries. [Smile]
