Sorry to rain on everyone's pervie parade. But it is undeniably TENTACLES with the N perfectly annunciated. Again, you are letting the hiss of the water screens color your imagination to hear testicles. There is also a symbol crash in the background which further aids in hearing the non-existant S
It sounds like "testicles" only because of the ELECTRICITY sound effects placed right in the middle of the word. It's obvious she says TENTACLES, but it definitely sounds like testicles because of that sound effect.
It was worse when they still had the Ursula float. She actually turned her right palm facing upwards and made a grabbing gesture when she said "tentacles," so it's no wonder everyone heard it as "testicles."
this is my first buzzed post in the DMCA -- I'm really in this club because I'm a bitch more than anything. I've only had to hit the backspace 4 (oops, make that 5) times in (now 7) in this (now 9) (now 15) in this post! Damn, now I'm up to 18! Our neighbors were (19) (20) making tequilla sunrises.

I have to ask..... What's with Ursula? I realize that "The Little Mermaid" revived the company and she is a great character but why does she seem to be in everything. Why a "staring" role in Fantasmic? A promenent feature in The World Of Disney in the collectible area when only the hands of the other villians are present. Why is she the ONLY villian in the new parade? I don't think a villian belongs in the parade at all (although I heard there is a reason, just don't know what it is). If they had to chose a villian, why her over a classic (Evil Queen, Chernabog) or a modern villian (Jafar, Skar)? I think they should've used Monstro the whale because of the iconic status that character has in Fantasyland (and to my knowledge the first or one of the first villians to have a pressence in Disneyland.)
As a show unit, Ursula goes right along with the Ariel float. I don't know the specific reason that she's there, other than... well, have you seen her? She's just plain cool-looking! She's an amazingly sophisticated puppet, and at the show stop, she sings along with "Welcome"! Diva-style! I got to see that on my birthday, and I think it was my favorite part of the whole day. I was cracking up the whole time.
I think one of the reasons they put her there is that she's such a visually interesting character, and she's completely unique. The majority of the other villains are either human or basic animals (I would lump Chernabog in here as well, because he's just a gargoyle *yawn*), but no other villain's design compares to the half-woman, half-octopus of Ursula. If I were an Imagineer, I'd want to use her as many places as possible, because she's so fun to design for. It helps that she's a pretty strong character (though I think Maleficent and Jafar are better, but again, they're less visually compelling) so her inclusion in shows keeps things dynamic.

"It's okay, Beaker, we're scientists. We get paid to fail."
*gigglesnerk* Oh man. You know...I *always* thought she was saying the same thing too, even while listening to the Fantasmic! track on the CD. (Yes I realize also my mind's grown very slightly perverse in my age...but -that-, I assure you, has nothing to do with it, lol ^^ But...it -DOES- sound like she's saying testicles. *thud* xD I don't remember her saying it in the parade though...probably couldn't hear her over everyone else, heh.

The Little Mermaid not only turned the Disney company around but was also released in nearly three years before Fantasmic debuted. Beauty and the Beast is also featured but it's villain (Gaston) is far less interesting than Ursula. Plus the show is on water which gives her extra points for a "starring role."
