A new tongue-twister to try to triumph over

How often is it in the English-speaking world is it that someone comes up with a new tongue-twister?

Well, that's exactly what your truly did after helping Mini Monk with a homework assignment involving such tricky phrases. I was inspired by something I read about the ancient Roman tradition of the triumph, a victory parade in which the soldiers would sing bawdy songs about their general. The songs were short and silly and when sung for Julius Caesar would constitute silly songs Caesar’s soldiers sang.

I defy you to say that ten times fast. If you can, put it up on YouTube and I'll publish it here. The gauntlet has been thrown!

Those guys sure knew how to throw a tea party.
