International Tongue Twister Day
It can be an elegant dance, or a stumble through a linguistic maze. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about Peter Piper picking pickled peppers or the vagaries of “A quick-witted Cricket critic”.
International Tongue Twister Day invites you to give your tongue some exercise and challenge your friends with the most difficult and convoluted tongue twisters. What number of knots can you tie your tongue into this year
Talking of the old, savagely picked pepper picker, it turns to be that Peter Piper, a dear person from our past, was actually a real person who was well-known for his delicious taste in spices and was immortalized.
When all was said and done, he was quite a character. He was French and savage, which paints a picture. He is also one-armed and a horticulturist which can make it difficult to plant. Let’s wrap it up.
He loved the sound of a cannonball and the tip of his sword to get seeds for his spices. He was also a pirate, that’s right. He got his hands on some nuts and came up with the rhyme “Peter Piper Picked A Peck of Pickled Peppers”.
Which tongue twister is most difficult? The Guinness Book of World Records in English says that it is “The sixth sick sheep’s sixth sheik’s sick.” We can guarantee that you will have your tongue knotted for at least a week. It’s awful, we know.
It’s easy to celebrate International Tongue Twister Day! All you have to do is spend the day practicing, reciting and sharing your favorite tongue twisters among friends.
You might hold a competition at work for tongue twisters or challenge your family and friends to do it as fast as possible. International Tongue Twister Day is only once a year. Maybe you can jump on the opportunity to take up the challenge for next year.
