We Tried the World’s Hardest Tongue Twister (Here’s How We Did)
As I was trying to explain the origin of the classic "she sells seashells by the seashore" tongue twister on the air yesterday, it tripped me up pretty good. Seemed easy, but not for me, I guess. So how would I fare (along with the rest of the office) with what researchers call the world's hardest tongue twister? We wanted to find out.
I had a hard time talking yesterday (and as many of you know) I got so frustrated that I walked out of the studio.
Well today I decided to test the office with the following tongue twister that researchers at MIT declared the hardest in the English language. Ready?
"Pad kid poured curd pulled cod."
Sounds easy, right? That's what we all thought too.
