    Any one got any good tongue twisters to add?.

    Try these few examples saying them fast.

    1)He Rattles his bottles in Rollockses Yard.

    2)Two elephants went up the hill and parted.

    3) One smart fellow he felt smart, two smart fellows they felt smart,3 smart fellows they all felt smart.:biggrin1:

    I'm not sure this counts, but I use this as a vocal warm up.
    "What a to do to die today at a minute or two to two, for thou beat a tattoo at twenty to two a rat a tat ta ta ta ta ta tattoo And the dragon will come when he hears the drum at a minute or two to two today!" Say it ten times increasing the tempo each time and enunciate every vowel.

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

    Gee, I didn't mean to kill the thread. Shouldn't have stated that mine was the hardest. Apparently it intimdated all the other guys. <G>

    How about this one --

    Shep Schwab shopped at Scott's Schnapps shop;
    One shot of Scott's Schnapps stopped Schwab's watch.

    There are some short ones that are notoriously difficult to repeat many times over. Probably the best known is "toy boat." I did teach myself a trick for doing this correctly. I find it easier to say "boat toy" instead of "toy boat". So when someone asks me to say it, rather than say --

    toy-boat, toy-boat, toy-boat, toy-boat, toy boat

    I say....

    toy boat-toy, boat-toy, boat-toy, boat-toy, boat

    It's a lot easier to say for some reason, but to the person listening it is identical.

    I do find these two much more difficult

    She sells seashells by the seashore.
    The shells she sells are surely seashells.
    So if she sells shells on the seashore,
    I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

    How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
    If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
    He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
    And chuck as much as a woodchuck would
    If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

    I have a quite few years of voice and theater training....
    tongue twisters were a staple for the classes.
    We literally had to stand in front of the class and these to each other.

    the 2 hardest from my experience: TOYBOAT...... and PEGGY BABCOCK.
    Because they're short and simple... rather than some complex constructed sentence about sheep

    Lol, love that one Davey.

    here's a naughty one -

    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.

    Mr. See owned a saw.
    And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
    Now, See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw
    Before Soar saw See,
    Which made Soar sore.
    Had Soar seen See's saw
    Before See sawed Soar's seesaw,
    See's saw would not have sawed
    Soar's seesaw.
    So See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.
    But it was sad to see Soar so sore
    just because See's saw sawed
    Soar's seesaw.

    I'm not the fig plucker,
    Nor the fig pluckers' son,
    But I'll pluck figs
    Till the fig plucker comes.
