Since today is International Tongue Twister Day, why not challenge your friends or coworkers to a tongue-twister duel? (We mean in a battle of alliteration and not French kisses.)
Here are classic tongue twisters to start it off:
1. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
2. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck would chuck wood if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
3. The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sick sheep.
4. She sells seashells on the seashore.
The seashells she sells are seashells she is sure.
5. I have a sieve full of sifted thistles and a sieve full of unsifted thistles, because I am a thistle sifter. (We borrowed this from The King’s Speech.)
The person to get the most verbiages down and in the shortest amount of time wins! You can even use our Congratulations Fete-a-Tete to throw a party in their honor.
