Interesting Polish tongue twister.

"Pójdźże, kiń tę chmurność w głąb flaszy."

This sentence contains all 32 letter of the Polish alphabet and each letter is used only once.

if anyone is wondering, the rough translation of that would be "Go on and drop your sadness into the depth of a bottle."

what's your fave polish tongue twister?

dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesięciodziewięciotysięcznik :)

One in English:

Theophiles Thistle, the successful thistle-sifter,
in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb. Now.....if Theophiles Thistle, the successful thistle-sifter,
in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust three thousand thistles through the thick of his thumb,
see that thou, in sifting a sieve full of un-sifted thistles,
thrust not three thousand thistles through the thick of thy thumb. Success to the successful thistle-sifter!

That's a bit like:

I'm not a pheasant plucker, i'm a pheasant plucker's mate, i'm only plucking pheasants, because the pheasant plucker's late. (try it, fast as you can!) :)

Raz w Sing Singu na dancingu, syn King -Konga gral w ping ponga.

Tere fere tere fere, gryzla myszka dwa selery, tere fere, tere fere, cztery sery bec.

Pewien narciarz z Sartogii zlamal sobie obie nogi, przyjechalo pogotowie, postawilo go na gowie i tak stoi dla przestrogi.

:) yes, another mouthful, isn't it? A few months ago, a Polish friend of mine lent me a book, in Polish, on Polish castles. One of the words was a good inch-and-a-half long ! I wish I had written it down. I just couldn't believe my eyes. :) I love learning Polish.

But I have conquered 'Szczebrzeszyn' :)

dziewięćsetdziewięćdziesięciodziewięciotysięcznik

Wow ! This word is even longer than the one I saw ! What does it mean?

How about sth that weighs 999.000 kilos ?
gosica 1 | 33

It made me think of mountains cos the only similar words i've come across in polish are "czterotysięcznik" and "trzytysięcznik", meaning respectively a 2.000 and 3.000m high mountain. But my dictionary says there's also "dwutysięcznik" - a two-thousand-tonner, that's a kind of ship?, and probably the name has sth to do with the weight. so, what i'm getting at is that you're right as well i guess :)

Ok fine....... Hasał huczek z tłuczkiem wnuczka i niechcący huknął żuczka. ? Ale heca... - wnuczek mruknął i z hurkotem w hełm się stuknął. Leży żuczek, leży wnuczek, a pomiędzy nimi tłuczek. Stąd dla huczka jest nauczka by niehasać z tłuczkiem wnuczka :)

Król Karol kupił królowej Karolinie korale koloru koralowego :)

King Carol bought Queen Caroline beads of a color of the reef :)

Even I can't say it in polish:

I have indyvidualised from excited crowd :)
