    The only ones I know are:

    1. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, how many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick? (That's the way I remember it, from school)

    2. She sells seashells by the seashore. (From the tv show The Brady Bunch)

    3. The rain in Spain falls mainly on the Plain. (From a movie starring Audrey Hepburn)



    I just googled Peter Piper to see if I got it right. There is a different version:
    "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers..."
    by Mother Goose

    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?

    I like some in dutch.

    1. Frans zegt tegen Frans in het Frans 'is Frans in het Frans Frans?' 'Nee,' zegt Frans tegen Frans in het Frans, 'Frans is in het Frans is Français'.

    (If flies fly behind flies, flies will fly like lightning.)

    4. De meid snijdt recht, de knecht snijdt scheef.
    (The maid cuts straight, the servant cuts crooked.)

    5. Ik mix whisky met een whiskymixer.

    It's not that much of a twister, but I don't know what else to call this kind of sentence. In Danish, for and får are pronounced the same.
    Far, får får får? Nej, får får ikke får, for får får lam
    More of a twister:
    Hundrede pund hunpuddelhundeuld
    or
    Ka' køer li' likør? Nej, køer ka' ikke li' likør, køer ka' li' køer

    Stativ, stakit, kasket

    Dialect:
    Hva' ha'? Ha' bu' Hva' hu? Hu' å bu'. Hva' bu? Bla-bu- Hva' bla-bu? Ubla-bu!
