What are some good/irritating tongue twisters that you know & can you say any without tripping up?

Asked by ucme (46701points) June 1st, 2010

You know, Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers etc. I’m hopeless at almost all of them constantly getting them wrong until I get bored & give up.What would be some that you know that are real humdingers & maybe not that well known?

No, I can’t actually say them without tripping over my tongue. Fortunately, I don’t feel that my life is diminished in any way by not saying them, so I’m good!

I’m pretty good at reciting this one fast without messing it up:

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood.

I’m pretty good at them actually. I can say the Peter Piper one easily. I can say the rubber baby buggy bumpers one as well, but the sea shells by the sea shore one is a doozie for me.

I’m fairly good at these. My favorites are deceptively simple. Say either of these five times, fast:
Unique New York
Toy Boat

@augustlan I’m afraid mine came out as Unique Yew Nork.Over & over again, ho hum never mind.

With a side order of soddamy from the burly buggers in the kitchen.Not good.

I’m very good at them.

Favorite? The sixth sick shiek’s sixth sheep’s sick.

Yes, I can say it.

kenmc's avatar

I can say this one extremely well:

“How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood. A wood chuck would chuck as much wood as a wood chuck could chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood.”

^^Harder to type than say for me.

Bring big pappa Paul a primo pack of pic-a-pop, pronto. (You can switch pic-a-pop for pizza pops.)

I guess it’s not all that hard, but it being an inside joke some friends and I made about some creepy dude we used to know makes it stick out for me.

– ena xtapodi oxtoplokamododekaxtapodo
