It’s National Tongue Twister Day!

It’s International Tongue Twister Day (11/08/21), and you know we’re always up for a challenge.  So we put together a list of some of the HARDEST tongue twisters we could find.  We’ll start with a few of the easier ones, and then they’ll get harder…


1.  “She sells seashells by the seashore.”

2.  “He threw three free throws.”

3.  “Betty bought a bit of butter.  But the butter Betty bought was bitter.  So Betty bought a better butter, and it was better than the butter Betty bought before.”

4.  “Is it harder to toot, or to tutor two tooters to toot?”

5.  “I like New York, unique New York, I like unique New York.”

6.  Try to say this one even TWO times fast:  “Scissors sizzle, thistles sizzle.”

7.  “Fred fed Ted bread and Ted fed Fred bread.”

8.  “A skunk sat on a stump and thunk the stump stunk, but the stump thunk the skunk stunk.”

9.  “A synonym for cinnamon is a cinnamon synonym.”


10.  Now that we’re warmed up:  The Guinness Book of World Records once claimed this was the HARDEST tongue twister:  “The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.”

But according to researchers at M.I.T., this one might actually be harder:  “Pad kid poured curd pulled cod.”
