Der Whiskymixer

“Der Whiskymixer mixt den Whisky mit dem Whiskymixer.
Mit dem Whiskymixer mixt der Whiskymixer den Whisky.”

One of the more famous German tongue twisters and a favorite to many, because one common way of tripping up is to say “wichst” instead of “mixt”. And wichsen is a colloquial term for masturbating.

The translation is roughly like this:

“The whisky mixing person is mixing the whisky with the whisky mixing device…”

And then, German just flips it around, because such is the way of the German sentence ;).
