Tongue Twister

Try to say this out loud as fast as you can:

A skunk sat on a stump. The stump thought the skunk stunk, the skunk thought the stump stunk. Who stunk, the skunk or the stump?

Only if I can say it in Spanish.

Nevermind. Not even then.

I worked in radio for years and am really good at these things...for all the good it's done me!

This is my favorite tongue twister. It took me while to sort it out, but I can spout it out with ease now.

I'm also good at saying "If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?"

I don't have any direct broadcasting credentials, but I've done professional vocal recording for announcements for telephone systems and phone-based surveys.

When I worked in a call center our greeting included a request for an account number, and people frequently mistook me for an extension of the phone system and started entering the number with their touch tone phone.

My tongue tripped and fell out of my mouth and I didn't pick it up in time to adhere to the ten-second rule, so into the trash it went. Now, don't you feel guilty?

Davin,

So much for my good intentions ;-)

It's really fortunate that you're a good writer, since your speech is now reduced to mmrpph.

I can do the "Peter Piper" one with ease, but this one totally "stumped" me! Hahaha!
