Tongue Twisters

A friend of mine at work is working on his diction. Why? Because he's an actor, and we actors have to do stupid things from time to time that seem completely silly to anyone outside of the acting world. Which, when you spend your time pretending to be someone or something you're not, is pretty much par for the course.

As a result, I've been hearing a lot of tongue twisters lately.

"I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop.
Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits. "

There has to be a scene in there somewhere. We've done scenes about palindromes and bazooka bubble gum jokes. Tongue twisters could be fun. Of course, it might just make the actors hate us. And they don't always make sense:

"What did you have for breakfast?
- rubber balls and liquor!
What did you have for lunch?
- rubber balls and liquor!
What did you have for dinner?
- rubber balls and liquor!
- rubber balls and liquor! "

"Rubber Balls and Liquor" sounds like a fine title for my autobiography. Hmmm...

Anyway, here's a page with 410 of them. If you have a favorite, leave it in the comment section.
