Tripping tellingly down the trail of trite tropes, three pterodactyls tripped over their tired tongues.
Yes, folks, according to our most favorite website, punchbowl.com today is National Tongue Twister Day!
According to punchbowl:
“Tongue twisters have fascinated people throughout history. Did you know that Peter Piper is a historical figure? Pierre Poivre was a one-armed French pirate and horticulturist during the mid-1700s. Poivre was notorious for stealing spice nuts (known as “peppers”) from Dutch trade ships, and using them to plant his garden. On at least one occasion he stole half a bushel of nutmegs, which inspired the tongue twister we know and love today.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the most difficult tongue twister in the English language is: “The sixth sick sheikh’s sixth sheep’s sick.” To celebrate International Tongue Twister Day, read a rhyming book or practice some of your favorite tongue twisters with your friends and family!
