Another version:

François Lang:

Her diction and memory are amazing. It really reminds me of the Major-General's patter song from The Pirates of Penzance.

    @myl — does she really say "ducks"? (At about 0:30.)

    I thought I noticed a bit of labio-dental articulation at about that point. (It would make more sense than the apico-alveolar would.) She ought to try rapping.

    I couldn't tell if used the euphemism in her speech, or just in the subtitles.

    I love it, but I don't get all the admiring comments about *memory* — the whole video is 38 seconds long.

    I should have said that it reminds me of Tom Lehrer's "The Elements", which is a parody of the Major-General's song!
