Thank you for "Picnic". Brings back lots of memories of tongue twisters. Here in Ontario, Canada, tomorrow we will be celebrating Canada Day with a Family BBQ. I'm taking "Picnic" with me as a tongue-twister for my grand kids.

Penny the Peppermint Poodle

And Perry the Purple Peacock,

Walked with a pair of parasols

To play in the park down the block.

They packed a picnic with a peach

A pear, a prune and a pickle.

There was a piece of pie for each

And a piece of pumpernickel.

Their pink pal Pete the Parakeet

Prepared pizza and plum strudel,

For Perry the Purple Peacock

And Penny the Peppermint Poodle.
