surely one with lots of 't's in it would be good..... don't know any off the top of my head so will just be creative and look for inspiration in the mazes of my brain.....

Tracy turner tripped a turtle trying to tango, the tangoing turtle tried to twist but tripped a tragic tumble

or just to make it a little more difficult . . . .

How much wood could Chuck Woods' woodchuck chuck, if Chuck Woods' woodchuck could and would chuck wood? If Chuck Woods' woodchuck could and would chuck wood, how much wood could and would Chuck Woods' woodchuck chuck? Chuck Woods' woodchuck would chuck, he would, as much as he could, and chuck as much wood as any woodchuck would, if a woodchuck could and would chuck wood.

The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.

A twister of twists once twisted a twist;
A twist that he twisted was a three-twisted twist;
If in twisting a twist one twist should untwist,
The untwisted twist would untwist the twist.

Something in a thirty-acre thermal thicket of thorns and thistles thumped and thundered threatening the three-D thoughts of Matthew the thug - although, theatrically, it was only the thirteen-thousand thistles and thorns through the underneath of his thigh that the thirty year old thug thought of that morning.

Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.
While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.
Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.
Freezy trees made these trees' cheese freeze.
That's what made these three free fleas sneeze.

I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop.
Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

Mrs Puggy Wuggy has a square cut punt . . . . . (self-modded)

That'll do for now!

Also not really a tongue twister, but playing 'Fuzzy Duck' after a few drinks has the same effect on people!! :lol:

The ultimate drunken tongue twister

One fat Hen and a couple of ducks,
Three brown bears,
Four running hares,
Five fat females, fixing for a fight.
Six sicillian seamen, sailing the sevens seas
Seven simple simons, sitting on a stump
Eight cocky sock cutters, cockily cutting socks (careful!)
Nine sheet slitters. I am not a sheet slitter but upon a slitted sheet I shall sit.
Ten pheasant pluckers, I'm not a pheasant plucker but a pheasant pluckers mate, I'm only plucking pheasants coz the pheasant pluckers late.
