How fast can you say this without messing up?

How fast can you say this without messing up?

If a woodchuck really could chuck wood, the amount of wood chucked by said woodchuck would be proportional to this woodchuck's desire to chuck wood as well as its personal preference in chuckable wood among varying degrees of specially-designed woodchuck chucking wood.

Please don't remind about that sentence, although it sounds longer in mymemory.

What does that even mean? Is that the old "If a woodchuck could chuck wood" line?

The one i knew translated to something like:

33 people from Trente, went to Trente, and all 33 people from Trente where riding horseback.

In italian (writing phonetic, so please don't mind the spelling )

Trentetre trentini andore a trente, tutti trentetre trentini trottelerando.

(or something like that, learned the sentence 25 years ago)

Yes, I did many years ago But I don't think learning that was high on my list of priorities at the time. I think the female portion of your population was, if I remember correctly.

Nope, just was there on a holiday 25 year ago and was hanging out with a group of italian kids. They spend almost the entire holiday teaching me this 1 sentence and i can't get it out of my mind anymore since.

(But in the end i could say it faster without errors then the italian guys teaching me )

Marco, if that is still stuck in your head after 25 years, you really need to get out more. I can't even remember what I had for breakfast yesterday.
