    I'm sure we can all do "she sells sea shells", but can you say "irish wrist watch" without a mistake? Failure after failure for me...
    Got any more good ones?

    Lucy to Ethel (Vivian Vance): "Just jiggle it a little, it'll open."

    EDIT: That was from memory. The scene was Ethel trying to open some door or something, and Lucy offering that sage advice. I tried to search for a video clip on YouTube, but the results just brought up a bunch of RAP crap about a completely different kind of "jiggling." :(

    Dr. Seuss had some good tongue twisters. His book about the alphabet comes to mind. I don't have the books any more. Most of my grandchildren are too old for Dr. Seuss. There were some tougher tongue twisters in that book, but this one I remember...

    Big J, little j. What begins with J?
    Jerry Jordan's jelly jar and jam begin that way.

    One of my late dad's favorites.
    He also taught me (and who knows WHY I still remember?).....One bright morning in the middle of the night....two dead boys got up to fight....back to back they faced each other....drew their swords and shot each other.....a deaf policeman heard the noise....and came and killed the two dead boys.

    Theopolous the thistle sifter thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb. See if thou, in sifting a sieve of unsifted thistles thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb.

    I recommend that every public speaker or singer get a copy of Fox In Sox. And read it till you can recite it like the disclaimer guy at the end of a radio contest commercial. Nothing will ever trip you up again!

    Fox in Sox! You're right! I vaguely recalled a Dr. Seuss book that had the toughest tongue twisters known to man, but couldn't remember the title. My 3 kids are all in their 40s (my oldest is about your age, Jakedog), and most of the 19 grandchildren they have given us are past the age of thinking Dr. Seuss book are cool. So it has probably been more than a decade since I last read a Dr. Seuss book. Maybe when the great-grandchildren come along...

    A wood chuck could chuck all the wood he could chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood.

    From a Redd Foxx album I had in middle school:

    I bought a box of baking powder and baked a batch of biscuits.
    I brought a big basket of biscuits back to the bakery and baked a basket of big biscuits.
    Then I took the big basket of biscuits and basket of big biscuits and mixed a bunch of biscuits from the baskets into a box.
    Then I took the big basket of biscuits and the basket of big biscuits and the box of mixed biscuits and the biscuit mixer...

    and opened a can of sardines and had a ball.
