A few months ago, a speech study revealed the jumble of words that may just be the most tricky tongue twister ever: "Pad kid poured curd pulled cold." And, for sure, we can't say this even five times without stumbling over our words. But long before this nonsensical mix of words was concocted there were a lot of other tongue-tangling classics like "Peter Piper Picked A Peck Of Pickled Peppers" that left us in a tizzy.

We asked our Facebook fans about the tongue twisters from their childhood that they still find impossible to say -- and we received a lot of great responses. Check them out below. Have anything to add? Let us know in comments.

So go ahead. Try saying any of the following phrases over and over again without tripping over the words. We dare you.

1) "I slit a sheet, a sheet I slit. Upon the slitted sheet I sit," wrote Warren Capps.

2) "Susie's sister sewed socks for soldiers," wrote Jane Thompson.

3) "She sells sea shells down by the seashore," wrote Judith Gregg.

4) "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood," wrote Anna Cornwall.

5) "Red leather yellow leather," said Amy Richards.

6) "Toy boat, toy boat, toy boyt. By the third 'boat' it comes out 'boyt'," wrote Derrick Telles.

7) "Peggy Babcock," wrote Vincent Aurelius.
