My last words on the election:
(Stolen borrowed from Linda Kay)

Sunday, November 13th, is International Tongue Twisters Day!!
Here are some for you to practice on.

"I was born on a pirate ship."
Hold your tongue while saying it.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records 
the most difficult English tongue twister is
"Toy boat."
Try saying it 5 times fast.

Try saying these 5 times, too.
You probably know the first ones:

Rubber baby buggy bumpers

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

She sells seashells by the seashore.

But these might be new to you:

Real weird rear wheels

She sits in her slip and sips Schlitz.

Jack's nap sack strap snapped.

Great gray goats

Tim, the thin twin tinsmith.

Switch watch, wrist watch.

The sixth sick Sikh's sixth sheep is sick.

Six Czech cricket critics

Shannon Shant ship ships through Shilshole, Seattle.

Quick queens quack quick quacks quicker than quacking quails.

Seven sleazy shysters in sharkskin suits sold sheared sealskins to seasick sailors.

I'm a sheet slitter. I slit sheets.
I'm the sleekest sheet slitter that ever slit sheets.

Did you hear about the guy who goes into a diner & asks the waitress what the lunch special is? When she tells him, "Tongue sandwich," he says, "I'd never eat anything that came out of an animal's mouth; just scramble me a couple of eggs!!"

To all our veterans--THANK YOU!!
