    Tongue twister

    Dont try this one if you already broke the seal on a bottle of Jack;;

    A thrifty thistle sifter,
    while sifting a seive of unsifted thistles,
    thrust three thousand thistles,
    in the thick of his thumb

    This is supposed to be the most difficult one in English:

    That's not really a tonguetwister, it's a published song, here are the lyrics - there may be other verses.

    I saw Esau sittin' on a seesaw,
    I saw Esau with my girl,
    I saw Esau sittin' on a seesaw,
    Givin' her a merry whirl.
    When I saw Esau he saw me,
    And I saw red and got so sore,
    That I got a saw and I sawed Esau
    Off that old seesaw.

    It's a polka and was recorded by the Ames Brothers. I'm not sure of the year or of the composer(s).

    I've known that little "doggrel" since I was a kid, and always thought it was part of something bigger, so cheers for that! The song must be at least 50 years old.

    Miss Smith's fish-sauce shop.

    That one dates back at least a hundred years, it's quietly effective.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Apparently, admitted during an interview, Bill Maynard sung this song in one take. He reckoned he would never have been able to sing it if he had to repeat it at the recording studio !
