Tongue Twisters

I like tongue twisters.  It really doesn't take too much to twist up my tongue, but I still like to try saying some of them.  I bet all of you remember when you were a kid and tried to say the tongue twister, "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers".

OK, I bet most of you tried to say it, right?

I found some more of them at this web site:
http://www.fun-with-words.com

I found this one on that site.  I had never heard this one before, so I decided to share it with you all:

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now, See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw
Before Soar saw See,

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.


Now be honest.  How many of you could read that tongue twister straight through really fast without any mistakes?  You could?  Well then, you are much better at it than I am.  My tongue gets twisted around my teeth and it takes some effort to get it untangled.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

  2. Two mistakes. Not fast but clear. Once upon a time I was a news reader for radio...

    1. Better than I can do. I have read it twice, wrote it once, and read it again and still made a mistake or two.

  3. I can say the one about Peter and his pickled peppers, but the other one is too difficult for me.

  4. Somehow I missed your last couple of posts... love the elephant photo... and the mimosa tree. We planted a mimosa here on the farm over 15 years ago... don't think it's ever bloomed. Tongue twisters? I'm lucky to get a normal sentence said the way I want it to come out.

  5. Enjoyed See and Soar, Dizzy. Yes, I got through it. We used to stand around and do tongue twisters to loosen up before going onstage.
    Thanks for this one ~
