    Eng. Lang. Jokes (Warm ups / ice breakers)

    Hello again my pedigree chums. It is me again [yeah, yeah, I should say 'I'].

    But I digress: I need a little more help, folks.

    I work with a brilliant primary teacher who has great success in warming up fifty indifferent little darlings five times a day with jokes and tongue twisters but he's a wily old fox and will only drip feed me one or two gems every now and then [I teach teenagers at the other end of the campus so I only see him from time to time].

    So, where can I find more gigglers like the following:

    What word in the English language is always spelt and pronounced incorrectly?

    Answer: incorrectly.

    Or,

    I would like one too [spelling test].

    Or,

    Say correct correctly [try this one especially, it's a real head-wrecker for all grades ].

    And,

    Betty bought some butter but the butter Betty bought was bitter so Betty bought some better butter than before.

    And,

    Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

    Any ideas, Web links, examples?

    Regards as ever.

    Newbie needs help! .
