There's a palace in Rome called Onion Palace ( palazzo cipolla), I suppose they all gather there and eat onions, raw nasty onions... Oh Italians...

I have heard worse from Duo. Such as, "The children write on the shark..." And I suppose if it was roasted or something it would be fine shrugs

Bizzare but not impossible. When he was Prime Minister of Australia,Tony Abbot did this with cameras rolling when he was touring an onion farm.

In the computer voice it sounds like "il" not "lo" even in slowed version

It's not "lo" it's "io". Capital i's look like l's. Should sound something like eeoh.
