Thursday Thirteen #315

The other day a friend posted on Facebook that she was picking the last of her peppers, which led to a little tongue twisting amongst her sister and I, you know, with the "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?" sort of thing.

So I thought I'd see if I could come up with 13 tongue twisters for the modern age. I am making these up, so we'll see how I do.

1. Tom texted twice to Tim to tell Tammy to tattle on Tina.

2. Adam's ap on his Apple ate his AP article.

3. Carl's computer conked 'cause Kelly kicked the cord.

4. Shelly's cell called Shirley while Shelly sang in the shower.

5. Bo beat Barney's Xbox band by banging the bass better.

6. Obama orated outside only to outrage the orthodoxy.

7. Chris Christie crowed callously and called catcalls to critics.  

8. A pox on paper, posted Paul from his PC.

9. Fred's Facebook flap failed to find falsehoods in the fringe fellow's fallacies.

10. Tabitha's Twitter tweets trained toddlers to taste tomatoes.

11. Windows warped the witch's wand when water wet the wiring.

12. Gulliver googled "giggle" and gasped greatly given the gangly, ghostly engraving Google googled up.

13. Pete's printer printed pictures Picasso painted perfectly.

How'd I do? Did any of these tongue twisters twist your tongue? Can you think of any?

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 315th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. ROFL... Methinks someone had too much time on her hands this week. Number eleven is the one that actually had me laughing, no idea why. Mine: Autumn Leaves

  2. my little students will be thrilled

  3. These are great! I've got to share them with my dd. She came home from drama class with the Peter Piper stuff recently.

    - Alice

  4. #13 really got me and I like the composition. I liked #11 too and they were all fun to read out loud.

  5. These are fun and much more difficult than picking the peppers... LOL

  6. Good ones! My mom's favorite..
    A tutor who tutors the flute
    Tried to tutor two tooters to toot.
    Said the two to the tutor,
    "Is it harder to toot or
    To tutor two tooters to toot?"

  7. Okay, am I the only one reciting these out loud? LOL! I'm glad no one is here with me or they'd think I was crazy. Great post!

  8. I tried them all and failed at most of them. Luckily only the puppy heard :)
