Sixth Sick Sheik

Sheep herded down the road

Another Tuesday Tongue Twister! I would have loved to hear Mel Blanc try this one out as Sylvester the Cat: The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick. Say it 10 times fast. Yeah, right. This one’s not so easy. And in case you were wondering, a Sheik is not a Sikh though he may be […]
