Decearing Egg is a faulty translation of the Japenese letters "えぐえぐえぐえぐえぐ" (Egu egu egu e guegu) discovered by An Odd World of Mine in a video. The nonsensical phrase has led it to become a catchphrase of critique for Google Translates methods.


The phrase "Decearing Egg" first appeared in the An Odd World of Mine video titled 'えぐ' on April 12th, 2017.[1] The contents of the video depict the user translating 'えぐ' from Japanese to English where the first anomalous result was Decearing Egg after entering the phrase five times. The video has garnered 3,212,302 views as of the 23rd of September, 2017 (shown below).


The same day, a GIF of the translations in the video was uploaded to Imgur (shown below).

On June 26th, 2017, Urban Dictionary user Kenoscirneh submitted a definition of "Decearing Egg" to the site's database.[3] On the April 16th, 2017 a thread on about the "Decearing Egg" phrase was made;[4] massing 35 comments as of the 17th of September, 2017.

It's even better if you put a space between the repeats. It's almost as if it becomes some doomsday message from the future where eggs or Eggman destroys the world.

えぐ えぐ えぐ えぐ えぐ えぐ → "Destruction of Eggs"

えぐ (x14) → "Destruction of Egg through the Egg"

えぐ (x16) → "Destruction of the Egg through the Earth ___ ___ 0"

えぐ (x18) → "Dedicated to the fact that there is a danger of harmful effects on the environment"

えぐ (x20) → "Dedicated to the fact that there is a danger of being hurt by the earthquake"

えぐ (x23) → "Dedicated to the fact that it is a part of the world's economic and social sciences,"

えぐ (x25) → "Dedicated engineering department Store in the heart of the city center ___ ___ ___ 0

えぐ (x27) → "Starting with the end of the year, you will find a set of embarking options, such as "DECEMBLE DEVICE", "DECEMBLE DEVICE DECEMBER""

えぐ (x30) → "Starting from the end of the year, use the DECEMBLE DEVICE DECODE DECODE DECODE DECODE DECODE DECODE DECEMBER"

And then it just keeps getting more ominous.
