    I'm neither the fig-plucker, nor the fig-plucker's son, but I'll pluck the figs 'til the fig-plucker comes.

    Ahh... this seems to be an American version of that old British classic, the pheasant plucker's son...
    Try saying this quickly...
    I'm not the pheasant plucker, nor the pheasant plucker's son, but I'll pluck those clucking peasants till the pheasant plucking's done.

    Dave, Chuck, did either of you actually say my tongue-twister aloud?

    If one doctor doctors another doctor, does the doctor who doctors the doctor doctor the doctor the way the doctor he is doctoring doctors? Or does he doctor the doctor the way the doctor who doctors doctors?
