Tongue twisters

It is the seaside. a little girls walks around, asking of passers-by:

plink: Buy seashells? Nice oyster shell with mother-of pearl. Also, I have earrings, buttons and brooches made from seashells.

*bambi eyes*

She sells sea shells by the sea shore
The shells she sells are surely seashells
So if she sells shells on the seashore
I'm sure she sells seashore shells


In the forest, a woodchuck is about to begin another day's work. A little plink comes by and asks:

plink: Are you a woodchuck?

Woodchuck: Yes....

plink: Can you chuck wood?

W: Y..es.... o.O

plink: Then how....

W: -.-"

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?


And in a Chinese language class, plinks are struggling with maths.

Teacher: One more time class. Fourteen is fourteen, forty is forty....

plinks: Shi4 shi3 shi1 shi4 shi27... shi51... shi128.... Owww! Teacher, I hurt my mouth liao....

Have you got any favourite tongue twisters to share?
