I don't get it. Is the printing of the o's the easter egg?

From looking around online it looks like it will just speak whatever text you type which is what the command is supposed to do...

:confused:

no just type the Os in the same line on your terminal (simply do apple-key c + apple-key v) and don't forget to turn on sound ;)

Correct. And by adding the -v you are can specify a voice.

Try these two:
say -v Vicki hello
say -v Fred hello

There are many more Voices too. This is no easter egg, it's just another features of OS X.
