  • 6. Tongue Twisters Betty Botter bought some butter, "But," she said, "this butter's bitter; If I put it in my batter, It will make my batter bitter; But a bit of better butter, Better than this bitter butter Will make my bitter batter better." So she bought a bit of better butter, Better than the bitter butter, And made her bitter batter better. Theophilus Thistle, the thistle sifter
While sifting a sieve full of unsifted thistles, Thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb.
