The World's Hardest Tongue Twister
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!
So what has been your favourite tongue twister of all time?
