Terrible Tongue Twister Tortures Trevor

I enjoy reading the Review section of The Weekend Australian newspaper. It has a broad range of articles about books, authors, literary events and many book reviews. Saturday’s edition had a short review of a book called “Sheep’s Miscellany: a collection of Truths and trivia.”

According to the author, Karen Gee, the toughest tongue twister in English is:

“The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.”

And she also states that New Zealanders lead the world in Googling the word “sheep.”

I’ve always wondered about the Kiwis.
