    What tongue twisters can you recite?

    Mine is The pleasant pheasant plucker:

    I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant pluckers son
    I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant plucker comes
    My husband is a keeper, he's a very busy man
    I try to understand him, I help him all I can
    But sometimes of an evening I feel a trifle dim
    All alone I'm plucking pheasants when I'd rather pluck with him.

    There's another 5 verses you can hear me read at:

      That's good, here's another one:

      I slit a sheet, a sheet I slit. And on a slitted sheet I sit. I slit a sheet, a sheet I slit. The sheet I slit, that sheet was it.

        I just said 'shit' Quite a lot actually hmm

        Here's one I've tried to learn in portuguese. I am currently minus the tip of my tongue and a portion of my pride.

        O rato roeu a rolha da garrafa do rei da RĂºssia.
        (The rat chewed the cork of the bottle of King Roland of Russia)

        The point is to roll all the rrrrrrr's in the back of your throat. I'm not sure I've mastered it as yet but I'm damn good at spitting big_smile
