Betty Botter had some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter--

better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

How Fast Can You Say This Tongue Twister?


Betty Botter bought some butter.
"But," she said, "the butter's bitter.
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter-- that would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter, better than her bitter butter.
And she put it in her batter, and the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter!

How good a tongue twister are you?

40 seconds and over:
Too slow. Your grandparents could say the poem faster.

30 to 40 seconds: Not bad. You're probably a faster talker than the President.

20 to 30 seconds: Pretty good. You've been gifted with a fast pair of lips.

15 to 20 seconds: Excellent. You can talk circles around anyone.

14 seconds or less: THE BEST! You are a tongue tying champion! [Big Grin]

The Right To Write!

When you write copy, you have the right to copyright the copy you write, if the copy is right.

If however, your copy falls over, you must right your copy.

If you write religious services you write rite, and have the right to copyright the rite you write.

Very conservative people write right copy, and have the right to copyright the right copy they write.

A right wing cleric would write right rite, and has the right to copyright the right rite he has the right to write.

His editor has the job of making the right rite copy right before the copyright can be right.

Should Thom Wright decide to write right rite, then Wright would write right rite, which Wright has the right to copyright. Duplicating that rite would copy Wright's right rite, and violate copyright, which Wright would have the right to right. Right? [Big Grin]

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See's saw
Before See sawed Soar's seesaw,
See's saw would not have sawed
Soar's seesaw.
So See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
Just because See's saw sawed
Soar's seesaw! [Big Grin]

I wish I had a small truck so I could take advantage of a contract hauling opportunity I saw mentioned the other day.

Seems a water- garden company wants a load of frogs delivered, but they have to be delivered in a special bog-like container that will fit in a pickup truck's bed.

They'll pay in food, which is exactly what the cat likes best! For each load delivered, the company will provide one enormous home-baked casserole with a crust of middle-eastern flat bread.

Mmmmmm! That's right: a pita pie per pickup pack of puddle peepers. [Big Grin]

A Little Thanksgiving Tongue Twisting Fun! (Caution! Try these in private!)

Greedy gobblers grabbed the gravy.
