Tongue-twister for French-speakers

#1 Post by RealBlackStuff » Wed Oct 04, 2017 8:33 am

Here's a nice tongue-twister for French-speakers:

En Papouasie il y a des papous papa et des papous pas papa. Mais chez les papous il y a aussi des poux, donc chez les papous il y a des papous papa à poux, des papous papa pas à poux, des papous pas papa à poux et des papous pas papa pas à poux. Chez les poux il y a des poux papa et des poux pas papa.
Question : Chez les papous, y'a-til des papous papa à poux papa, des papous papa à poux pas papa, des papous papa pas à poux papa, des papous papa pas à poux pas papa, des papous pas papa à poux papa, des papous pas papa à poux pas papa, des papous pas papa pas à poux papa et des papous pas papa pas à poux pas papa ?


English-speakers aren't much better off...

I know one in danish:

De vilde ville vide hvad de hvide vidste, men de hvide vidste ikke hvad de vilde ville vide.

I have one in Microsoft Sam:

Soi Soi soi soi soi soi
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
