Could it be a reference to "The Inspector General"? I can't find the
lyrics online, but isn't there a song called something like "Praise to
Grozny (to the Sky)" in which Danny Kaye is always a beat or two ahead
of or behind everyone else?

Sounds to me like Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, which is not exactly
on the Black Sea, but is only about 300 miles away. It's the same word
that in "Ivan Grozny" is usually translated as "the Terrible", so maybe
it has invented uses as well.
