Does anyone in the house know any Japanese? :3

I am fortunate enough to have one of the GetBackers video games to run through some really cool PS2 emulation software. <i>Dakkandayo! Zenin Shuugou!!</i> to be exact :3 It's actually downright hilarious; the first boss is a woman who turns into a man, that fights by kissing and straddling poor Ban and Ginji. Oh Japan <3 I don't understand any of the dialogue except for the characters names and the occasional plot word like "Mugenjo" so as I'm playing I usually make up what's going on. (Though I am pretty proud to say that I can recognize Ban and Ginji's names, Ban's name looking like a cobra being charmed out of it's little basket, and the second character of Ginji's looking like a guy really enthusiastically dancing Grin)

Anyway, every once in a while Emishi or Juubei pops out of a mystery box. The game pauses, Emishi moves around a bit, and then he dissapears. I have no idea what's supposed to be happening xD

And this is what he says.

Any ideas as to what's going on guys? Cheesy

It's a lame pun Emishi-style. Basically what it says: "toriniku wa torinikui. rebaa taberebaa" which basically means "chicken meat is hard to pick" and "if you eat the liver/lever (as in joystick lever). I'm not good at translating in English and choosing the right words in English, so I'll just leave them with the literal meaning.
