Round and round the rugged rock the ragged rascal ran.
Six sleek swans swam swiftly southwards
Red lorry, yellow lorry
How many yaks could a yak pack pack if a yak pack could pack yaks?

New York Unique, Unique New York.
And here are the drinking games which are best practised sober and in private before attempting in polite company with a glass or two of wine inside you.. trust me!
I slit the sheet and the sheet slit me, slit was the sheet that was slit by me.
I am a pheasant plucker, I’m a pheasant pluckers son and I’ll keep plucking pheasants until the pheasant plucker comes.
