Does anyone know any good tongue twisters in French?

I enjoy tongue twisters, and I thought it would be fun to maybe have a competition for who could make the hardest tongue twister in French. If you don't know any in French specifically, you can share one you know in another language. I'll do the first one.

Je suis ce que je suis, et si je suis ce que je suis, qu’est-ce que je suis ?

Si mon tonton ton ton tonton ton tonton sera tondue. Not really a tongue twister but its fun to say


There all so different, some can be funny if not risky, I like the french ones as its good practice for me. Well done for this discussion. I was tempted to do the saucey ones. (wasn't sure they would be appropriate) So the ( pheasant plucker) will just have to wait for another time so can we have more in any language as it will benefit us all. Anything's got to be better than telling some one in French you wish you was there shoes (do people really say that) !!!! So more please an well done
