    World's Longest Tongue Twister
    from Leslie T: Ex-Member (deleted:truethomas) on Mon 20/04/09 11:21

    Had this for years and I just came across it again recently. Oh, you're all going to hate me for it;

    Twixt Trent and Tweed, quite near to Stoke,
    A bloke's big, black, back brake block broke.
    He was a sheik, Gig-whip by name,
    The sixth one to be called the same.

    This shy man owned a flock of sheep;
    One day some sorrow made him weep.
    His sixth sheep fell into ill health
    (He didn't feel to well himself).

    His son ran to the doctor's, 'Is it
    Too late,' he cried, 'to pay a visit?'
    The doctor hurried, quite appalled,
    'Gig-Whip, Gig-Whip, Gig-Whip.' He called.

    'You ate black bug's blood broth, you say?
    No bug's black blood for you today.'

    'For you and ewe, I think it's best,
    That you should have a month of rest.
    I think you need an ocean cruise.
    With good sea air, you'll cure your blues.'

    So they threw three quick things in a trunk,
    And on a steamer booked a bunk.

    But half way through the cruise that week,
    The stupid steamer sprang a leak.
    Across the hole, they nailed a plank,
    But still the sinking steamer sank.

    The shy sick sixth sheik sank, it's true.
    The shy sick sixth sheik's sheep sank too.
    The should have stayed with the other bloke,
    In a soft shot-silk sash shop near Stoke.
