MIT researchers devise world’s toughest tongue twister


No, it's not "Lick Ice Cold's Crack."...it's "pad kid poured curd pulled cod." Try to say each 10 times really fast.

A nonsense string of words devised by MIT researchers investigating speech errors and brain functions proved so difficult that no test subjects could repeat the phrase -- clearly marking it as the world’s toughest tongue twister.

The phrase was "pad kid poured curd pulled cod." When volunteers tried it, according to MIT psychologist Stefanie Shattuck-Hufnagel, some of them simply stopped talking altogether.

Why does MIT always reveal the most useless studies?

That doesn't even make sense. It's just a bunch of random words strung together.

The way to beat most tongue twisters is don't take breaths in-between each line. Helps a lot.
