Nothing like a tongue twister to bring a smile to our faces. Smiley
Here is one for this Easter Sunday.

Betty Botter bought a bit of butter.
The bit of butter Betty Botter bought was bitter.
Said Betty Botter:
"If I buy a bit of better butter, it will make my bitter butter better".
So Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter and her bitter butter was better! Grin

This is a true real-life tongue twister.

In Ireland there's a tradition that when a person dies, a month later the family will request a Mass be offered for the deceased soul. It is commonly known as a Months Mind.
This particular woman who's elderly mother had recently passed away, asked me if I could contact a priest who I knew quite well and ask if he would offer Mass for her deceased mother.
I had the priest's number at home so I called him. After about three fumbling attempts I finally got stating my request to the priest. I asked him if he would be the celebrant at Maggie Mounts mother's months mind Mass.

What I find funny is the way I am struggling to say the sentence and am completely unable. Anyone listening would be forgiven for thinking I am speaking a strange language, not English at all.
That was a really good one Martin. I am sure to pass it on. Smiley

Congratulations Patricia. Smiley
I think the trick is to say it as if you are  narrating it to someone else;  it flows quite naturally then Smiley

Kipi kikusikitishacho?  Grin

I know, very unfair of me.
It is a swahili one for "What is making you unhappy"?
It is a real tongue twister that one, even to the speakers of the language which I am not. Grin
