There's a section where 19 words are sung in about 3 seconds. And it's all done in an over-the-top French accent. Angelica's main song (''Satisfied'') also counts- Lin himself can't pull off her rap sections, and she's got less opportunities to sneak a breath in than Lafayette does.

This was eventually turned into a contest to see if any real-life customers could recite the entire list on the spot for a free drink.
** There was a second contest involving the song, this time with free records given out with local newspapers, one of which would be a winner. Another variation was to press the song on records of varying stability, and only the one that wouldn't warp at the end would be the winner.
