I’m curious of were the phrase originated from, at first I thought TTV made it up around the “Omega Tahu” era, but in deeper searching, the phrase was also used before the 2015 Bonkle leak was reviled.
Honestly, it probably didn’t have any concrete origins, and was something that people did as a joke that somehow caught on, like Sanic.
Take the word, BIONICLE. Try to squish it so that you can say it in two syllables. Enjoy.
People have been saying Bonkle for over a decade now.
I was talking to my great grandma and she mispronounced bionicle so the term was introduced to me that way.
Although I found out later that I in fact was not even close to the inventor of that phrase years later.
