Insane Ramblings of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in TMNT: Out of the Shadows-- all in one place!

The guys at Kotaku have gathered a bunch of the insane ramblings of the Turtles in the new game Out of the Shadows into one video. You can check it out here.

These lines are "random banter," meaning they generally play when not much else is going on. But if you just sit still, you can hear almost all of it, which is what they did here.I wrote these lines, but the way these things work, this is the first time I've heard them read outloud.

For the record, by the way, this is Michelangelo's entire meditation on pizza:

You know, pizza isn't just a thing. It’s a life, it’s a world. You can put anything on it; there's pepperoni, sausage, bacon, onions, shrimp, pineapple for some Hawaiian flavor. I've never been to Hawaii, but I think “all right, they have good pizza.” Green onions, olives, green olives, black olives there totally should be red olives. Tomatoes, dried tomatoes; that’s artisanal. I think that means expensive. Extra cheese- that’s not really a topping, but everyone acts like it is. Cheese in the crust. Mind: blown. Red pepper, crushed red pepper- which is a totally different kind of pepper. JalapeƱos, green chilies, chicken. In New Orleans, they have jambalaya pizza. What a great place that must be. Mushrooms, black mushrooms; Shiitake, they call it. Japanese, awesomeness. Canadian bacon; that’s amazing, it’s not quite bacon, but it is. The little things in life.
