Great video, thanks Delta Tango!


Here's another tongue twister:

Theophiles Thistle, the successful thistle-sifter,
in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb.

Now.....if Theophiles Thistle, the successful thistle-sifter,
in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb,
see that thou, in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb.

Mrs Puggy Wuggy has a square cut punt.
Not a punt cut square,
Just a square cut punt.
It's round in the stern and blunt in the front.

Probably only if you manage to attach an audio file of you attempting that one

@obs20, not if you pronounce it right!



Ned Nott was shot
and Sam Shott was not.
So it is better to be Shott
than Nott.
Some say Nott
was not shot.
But Shott says
he shot Nott.
Either the shot Shott shot at Nott
was not shot,
or
Nott was shot.
If the shot Shott shot shot Nott,
Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott,
then Shott was shot,
not Nott. I need not your needles, they're needless to me;
For kneading of noodles, 'twere needless, you see;
But did my neat knickers but need to be kneed,
I then should have need of your needles indeed.
However,
the shot Shott shot shot not Shott --
but Nott.

"The World's Hardest Tongue Twister
February 9th 2007 00:22

According to the Guiness Book of World Records, this is officially the 'World's Hardest Tongue Twister'. It just goes to show that sometimes the ones looking the most simple are often indeed the best.

The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

Try saying that one 3 times with speed!

Some of course you can just see coming, like this one:

Our Joe wants to know if your Joe will lend
our Joe you Joe's banjo. If your Joe won't
lend our Joe your Joe's banjo our Joe won't
lend your Joe our Joe's banjo when our Joe
has a banjo!

Of course some of the lengthier ones look reasonably simple and aren't so bad to start with, but do catch you in the end like the old:

One-One was a racehorse.
Two-Two was one, too.
When One-One won one race,
Two-Two won one, too.

And who remembers the old guaranteed every time....

Red leather! Yellow leather!

And of course we couldn't leave this one out! (best not said aloud with little kiddies in the room!)

I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's son,
And I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come!"
