The fun comes when those who are ‘twisting’ the phrases instead get themselves twisted, and blurt out words, which sound like a gush of air. Or they stop suddenly trying hard, with all their might, to articulate a word that just stays at the tip of their tongue refusing to come out. Their facial expression as they go about tongue twisting is another cause of mirth.
