“Hrun was one of the Circle Sea’s more durable heroes: a fight of dragons, a despoiler of temples, a hired sword, the kingpost of every street brawl. He could even—and unlike many heroes of Rincewind’s acquaintance—speak words of more than two syllables, if given time and maybe a hint or two.”—Terry Pratchett, The Colour of Magic (via discworldquotes)
The sign language equivalent of tongue twisters are called ‘finger fumblers.’
English isn’t the only language with phrases created for the sole purpose of tongue tying the speaker. There are tongue twisters in Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, Swahili, etc. Even sign language has its own version of the phenomenon called finger fumblers. “Good blood, bad blood” is an example of one such finger fumbler.
Sure you can say it just fine with your mouth, but it’s quite difficult with your fingers. In fact, parents and family of deaf children often use finger fumblers to help them practice their sign language. In fact, practicing tongue twisters have been proven to increase proficiency in just about any language. Still not satisfied? Read the source!
Foreplay idea: Put on a silk robe and walk seductively towards your lover. Gently push them onto the bed, handcuff them to the bed post, and shout “I’LL SHOW YOU WHY MAGES ARE FEARED” and send them to the Fade.
