You need a vacation? From your statement I would say that a replacement backside should be higher on your list of needful things.

Why do I feel as if I am being targeted to “Bet my ass”? :shock:

When betting your ass, remember to hedge your bets...

I'll shoot for 1342.

As long as I don't have to read any tongue twisters... :wink:

As threatened, I have opened the tongue twister project. viewtopic.php?f=28&t=83481
Those who have made guesses as part of the friendly contest are the only readers allowed here. I will pre-populate the MW with all the competitors as of the 31 Oct deadline, in order of your guesses, but will adjust as requested.

I will assemble the recorded tongue twisters into a single file - like the act of a play - for cataloging. (I will also do the intro, outro, and preface.) I really really really need a DPL.

So each of you only have to read a voice credit ("A [or whatever letter is next in sequence] read by XXXX") and the associated twister stanza. For extra credit, feel free to include in your recording the 10 initial attempts to say the twister correctly!

In theory, you only need to record if your guess is proven not to be a winner. But why not avoid the rush and do it now? And even if you are the winner, can't we still hear your voice?

OK, but please don't require anyone to record. They may not even have a microphone (be a straight DPL), or don't want to do it. ;)

Yes, I agree - it is after all your contest!

No one is required to record for this, and I will handle filling any empty sections.

Thanks, Todd
