Tongue Twister

I heard a German tongue twister today that I thought was pretty funny. Try to say this ten times fast:
“Junge Burschen, die vor einem Schokoladenladen Laden laden, laden Schokoladenladen-Mädchen gerne zum tanzen ein.”

Ironically my Russian professor taught it to me. Here’s the English translation: “Young boys that are loading boxes in front of a chocolate store, gladly invite chocolate store girls to go dancing.”

Not quite as funny in English. Thanks, Dr. Samuel!

That’s a totally cool tongue twister, dude. Frankly, I didn’t know it before. It’s also funny that you got it from your Russian, not German, teacher. Do you want to ask Stehr if he knew this one before?

I got a good czech one:

Strč prst skrz krk.

It means “stick your finder down your throat” but it has no vowels. NO VOWELS, I SAY!!
