Are you good at tongue twisters?

"Let's have a new game. We shall do tongue twisters today". The class went wild. This is something I dread. How do I do tongue twisters when I cannot even talk properly! Friends, what about you? Are you good at it? Any tips to share how to do it well? Here's two easy ones. Have a go at it. Twister#1 "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair If Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair then Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy, was he?" Twister#2 "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." Well, how was it? Fun? Kindly share your experiences. Thank you :)

Awwww bighead, I'm too old for this kind of game. For some reason, I can't move my tongue today. Don't you have anything EASIER then the one you provided. I don't have much problem with twister #1. The second one took me an hour to get it right. So...what's my grade?

I had no problem doing those two, only because when I was a kid my dad would repeat them over and over to me and then make me say them back. But any others, and my tongue gets tangled up in my teeth! Here's one for you (it's not so bad saying it one time, but try it four or five times and see how you do LOL): Rubber baby buggy bumpers. When I try it, it usually comes out rugger bagee bubby bumpers! ROFL

Oh I confess it was extremely frustrating. The first tongue twister was alright, but I had a wee bit of problem with the second. It know the second was at most one with moderate difficulty still my tongue does not behave that well. It's one thing about old age. Your speech starts to slur and your tongue obeys you not.

How about these? She sells sea shells on the sea shore, The shells she sells are surely sea shells, So, if she sells shells on the sea shore, I'm sure she sells sea shore shells. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, A peck of pickled peppers, Peter Piper picked, If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. And a naughty one! I chased a bug around a tree, The biggest bug you'll ever see. I bagged that bug, 'cause he bugged me, That bug around a tree. A bug... a bug... a bug... a bug... A bug around a tree. Yes, they're great fun, my friend. If I can avoid laughing, I can manage to say them, but once I start to laugh... that's it... I'm a gonner! Brightest Blessings.

Nice thread! I struggled with the second twister, first one's easy. I need more practice. My favorite twister is Black blood blue blood. The hardest tongue-twister in the English language (according to Guinness World Records) is supposedly The sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick. I also like "Betty bought some butter...."
