Qov has told the story of what happened, but I can't recall where. IIRC,
the speaker was unable to pronounce initial {ng}, so they decided to have
her say "sing" and have the sound editor cut it off, except that
instruction was miscommunicated so the recording was cut off at the wrong
end. Or something like that.
