Twist the tongue -6-


These are said to be the hardest tongue twisters poems;

    I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's mate, 
    And I'm only plucking pheasants 'cause the pheasant plucker's late. 
    I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's son, 
    And I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come.

    A tutor who tooted the flute 
    Tried to tutor two tooters to toot 
    Said the two to the tutor 
    "Is it tougher to toot 
    Or to tutor two tooters to toot?"

    Silly Sally swiftly shooed seven silly sheep.
    The seven silly sheep Silly Sally shooed
    Shilly-shallied south.
    These sheep shouldn't sleep in a shack;
    Sheep should sleep in a shed.

    Three sweet switched Swiss witches 
    Watch three washed Swiss witch Swatch watch switches. 
    Which sweet switched Swiss witch watches 
    Which washed Swiss witch Swatch watch switch?


    Theophilus Thadeus Thistledown, 
    The succesful thistle-sifter, 
    While sifting a sieve-full of unsifted thistles, 
    Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb.

    Now, if Theophilus Thadeus Thistledown, 
    The succesful thistle-sifter, 
    Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb, 
    See that thou, while sifting a sieve-full of unsifted thistles, 
    Thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb.
