Here's her voice

I don't know how old this recording is but obviously before they got to the point of no longer distorting the voice. It sounds to me like she was very good, though. She was a contralto, which is the deepest female range.

Whoa!! 2.0

Dude! She's like...dead 'n stuff. Of COURSE I can outrun her!

Whoa!!

I'd like to see you to tell her that to her face!! How fast can you run!!??

Whoa 2.0

So THAT'S the fat lady they're always talking about!!

Whoa

I would seriously not mess with her.
