November is International Tongue Twister Day. It’s definitely a day to practice “Peter Piper,” “She sells sea shells,” “Betty Botter,” and about a gazillion others (give or take).
However, I’ve got a few more suggestions for you to learn and spout off for your friends:
- “The Pellet with the Poison” or “The Maladjusted Jester” from “The Court Jester” (scratch that, just watch the whole movie . . . or anything else with Danny Kaye for that matter)
- Almost anything by Dr. Seuss (my favorite is probably “The Sleep Book”)
- “The Jabberwocky” and other (mostly nonsense) poems by Lewis Carroll
“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue.”
James 3: 7-8a
