Twisting words

You might expect a political post here, but I’m staying away from all that for now.

Instead, I’d like to share a sort of torture technique (I know, this sounds like I’m discussing US politics again, but bear with me) that I thought up for the benefit of my little sister, long ago.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You give the aforementioned little sister a phrase, asking her to repeat it over and over again.
  2. She considers the phrase; it is innocuous and probably nonsensical.
  3. She plays along and repeats the phrase, hopefully for the benefit of other siblings or possibly parents.
  4. Although SHE is primed to hear only the random words you gave her, everyone ELSE hears something entirely different.

This will make more sense with an example.
