Sorry if the f-word offends, but I thought this was funny.

Thanks Patricia.  Spawning Salmon, that explains it, but I'm still amazed that they come by the thousands.

Spud, no, hers weren't about toucans.  They were just random.   One I can't remember started with something like "Betty Botter bought a bit of bitter butter".  Even that line could be wrong.  It went on to say it made her batter bitter... lol.  That was just one of many.

Melinda, did your grandmother have more than one about Tucans?

Joan, I've not heard the thistle thistler's daughter.  I sounds like it would be difficult to pronounce.

Tony, I didn't know eagles congregated.  Perhaps there's an abundance of food there?

Comment by Tony Carroll on January 13, 2013 at 4:47am

Wonderful eagles!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 12, 2013 at 2:37pm
Spud, what a great tongue-twister. Far better than the thistle thistler's daughter!

I love it Spud!  My Grandma used to have a bunch of those she'd say.
