So, let's continue with some more famous tongue twisters. All set? OK.

The first one here is a funny one about two doctors:

    If one doctor doctors another doctor, does the doctor
    Who doctors the doctor doctor the doctor the way the
    Doctor he is doctoring doctors? Or does he doctor
    The doctor the way the doctor who doctors doctors?

This is another funny one about what happened during a walk in Washington:

    While we were walking,
    We were watching window washers
    Wash Washington's windows
    With warm washing water.

Now have a look at the next famous tongue twister poem about a bear and a boar:

    Once upon a barren moor
    There dwelt a bear, also a boar.

    The bear could not bear the boar.
    The boar thought the bear a bore.

    At last the bear could bear no more
    Of that boar that bored him on the moor.

    And so one morn he bored the boar;
    That boar will bore the bear no more.

Here's another poem of the famous tongue twisters:

    How many cans can a canner can
    If a canner can can cans?

    A canner can can that many cans
    As a canner can can cans.

One of the most famous tongue twisters is the next funny poem. It's about two cowboys, Ned Nott and Sam Shott, who fought a duel:

    Ned Nott was shot
      and Sam Shott was not.
    So it is better to be Shott
      than Nott.
    Some say Nott
      was not shot.
    But Shott says
      he shot Nott.
    Either the shot Shott shot at Nott
      was not shot,
      Nott was shot.
    If the shot Shott shot shot Nott,
      Nott was shot.
    But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott,
      then Shott was shot,
      not Nott.
      the shot Shott shot shot not Shott,
      but Nott.

The next famous tongue twister talks about a guy called Peter Piper:

    Peter Piper picked a peck
    Of pickled peppers;
    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?

    This one is from Children's Literature, A Textbook of Sources for Teachers and Teacher-Training Classes (1920) by Curry and Clippinger.

This is another cute one:

    He's the Twistable Turnable Squeezable Pullable
    Stretchable Foldable Man.

    He can crawl in your pocked or fit your locket,
    Or screw himself into a twenty-volt socket,
    Or stretch himself up to the steeple or taller,
    Or squeeze himself into a thimble or smaller.

    Yes he can, course he can,
    He’s the Twistable Turnable Squeezable Pullable
    Stretchable Foldable Man.

    And he lives a passable life
    With his Squeezable Lovable Kissable Hugable
    Pullable Tugable Wife.

    And they have two twistable kids
    Who bend up the way that they did.

    And they turn and they stretch
    Just as much as they can
    For this Bendable Foldable
    Easily moldable
    Washable Mendable
    Highly Dependable
    Buyable Saleable
    Always available
    Bounceable Shakeable
    Almost unbreakable
    Twistable Turnable Man.

    by Shel Silverstein, from A Light in the Attic
