maybe you’ve heard this one before, but i hadn’t. i was in new zealand a couple weeks ago, and the emcees of a youth ministry event i was speaking at used this as a hilarious crowdbreaker in one of the sessions.
get about 5 or 8 teenagers up front
tell them they have to say a tongue-twister as fast as possible, five times, and that there will be a prize for the two or three who can say the whole thing without messing up at all.
the tongue-twister is: One smart fella and he felt smart
to say it five times, though, it becomes:
One smart fella and he felt smart
Two smart fellas and they felt smart
Three smart fellas and they felt smart
Four smart fellas and they felt smart
Five smart fellas and they felt smart
what inevitably happens is that many of them end up saying something like, “One fart smeller and… dang!”
when i saw this done, the entire crowd was cracking up. only one contestant got it right on the first try. so the other kept trying until there were three winners.
if you can get away with it, this would be pretty hilarious to do at a family event, using parents up front.
yup. wonderfully immature. and hilarious.
