Now for a joke or two from Sally

Now time for my annual tongue twister challenge…If playing this on Zoom or after Christmas Dinner, it is a good idea to make sure you know everyone really well

I can tell you from experience that after a glass or two of alcoholic beverages, even the most articulate will find these a challenge.. and whilst they are busy, you can grab some more trifle….

The majority of tongue twisters are designed to help students pronounce English words correctly and then there are the Drinking Games!

Each of the following should be spoken as quickly as possible.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?


Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter


How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood
As a woodchuck would if a woodchuck could chuck wood


She sells seashells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I’m sure she sells seashore shells.


How many cookies could a good cook cook If a good cook could cook cookies? A good cook could cook as much cookies as a good cook who could cook cookies.


Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager
imagining managing an imaginary menagerie.

One liners that should be said as quickly as possible and repeated as many times as you can.

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?

Seventy seven benevolent elephants

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.

Six Cockney sock cutters, cockily cutting socks.


Let us know how you did…….that is if you are still talking to us…. and thanks for dropping in today…Debby and Sally.


Thanks for dropping in today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face..thanks Debby and Sally.

  1. The imaginary menagerie manager got me, and I’ve not had a drink yet! I’m keeping these for Christmas fun, Sally.
    Debby, I love the hunting dog. And where can I get some memory sole shoes?
    The deer on the way to work shows the importance of syntax!

  3. Great jokes and I love the tongue-twisters, Sally. I was wondering if they would work to practise pronunciation, but they are pretty ambitious, although it would be fun for a break in the hard work. Thanks, Sally and Debby!
