Tongue twisters in English:

Sally sold sea shells by the sea shore.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peckers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

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

English speakers can add more if you can think of them as well. Thanks, guys.
It is ok to do it slow.. but when do it fast...

This is a Bicol dialect children's rhyme and game which is recited while playing with little children. The adult person opens his/her palm and let the little kids put their index finger in the open palm. The object of the game is for the adult to hold captive as many fingers as he can by closing his/her palm at the last word of the rhyme; and the children is supposed to withdraw their index fingers at the last word so that they would not be caught.

Pico Pico salag prico dacupa si Benito ta parataban tubo!

(Pick pick parrot's egg, catch Benito for he/she is a sugar cane thief!).

LOL! But kids today (3 to 96) would rather play computer games and/or chat via forums like this one.

Hello.

Good afternoon.

Here with my contribution in the tongue twister.
Parangaricutirimicuaro.

Please don't be shy and repeat it at least 10 time in the same time.

Don't stop when you have started the repetition.

Sincerely yours.

Before I decide to try repeating the word, does the word mean anything? If so what does it mean?
