Is this a tongue twister?

you are right, you can use it as tongue twister :)

it's called "hundrede" and not "hundred" in Danish

Kan både hundred og hundrede ikke bruges? http://ordnet.dk/ddo/ordbog?query=hundred

in the Danish dictionary I own, there is only the "hundrede" form. And in my 10 years of living in Denmark and teaching math in Danish, I never met the "hundred" form anywhere. While the "hundred" form may be valid, it rarely (if ever) seems to be used.
