Petit livre de Kiki la cocotte qui convoitait

Petit livre de Kiki la cocotte qui convoitait - Laurent Gaulet I received M. Gaulet's fine collection of French tongue-twisters as a present earlier this evening. Try saying the following quickly:

Je suis Jésus, suis-je juste?
(I am Jesus, am I fair?)

Le marxiste excité exècre le trotskiste triste
(The hyper Marxist disses the sad Trotskyite)

Il était une fois un homme de foi qui vendait du foie dans la ville de Foix. Il se dit : "Ma foi, c'est la dernière fois que je vends du foie dans la ville de Foix."
(There was once a man of faith who sold liver in the town of Foix. He said to himself, "In faith, this is the last time I sell liver in the town of Foix.")
