International Tongue Twister Day

It's International Tongue Twister Day!

"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers."

"A quick witted cricket critic."
"She sells seashells by the sea shore."
How many other tongue twisters can you think of to celebrate this tongue-twisting holiday?

Tongue twisters have fascinated people throughout history. Did you know that Peter Piper is a historical figure? Pierre Poivre was a one-armed French pirate and horticulturist during the mid-1700s. Poivre was notorious for stealing spice nuts (known as "peppers") from Dutch trade ships, and using them to plant his garden. On at least one occasion he stole half a bushel of nutmegs, which inspired the tongue twister we know and love today.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most difficult tongue twister in the English language is:

"The sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick."

@ J. Harrington

I always thought the answer was, "A woodchuck could cut a cord of conifer if you gave him a quarter for every cord of conifer he cut."
