Thinking of seashell, I will recall a funny memory of Singapore’s local comedy show featuring this famous seashell tongue twister.

She sells sea shells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I’m sure she sells seashore shells.

I always get tongue tied after reaching the third line. All the ‘sh’ and ‘s’ will be missing from the quick twisting. In Jack Neo’s comedy show, a comedian nicknamed Alamak pronounced the tongue twister as

She sell sea sha by sea saw.
The sha she sell are sea saw sha.
So she sell sea shell by sea saw.
She sha sea saw sha.

Last sentence is a chinese dialect word which means mad. All the audience broke into laughter. This scene still imprinted in my mind and I can’t stop laughing about Alamak’s broken english and his facial expression.
