A BIT

A BIT appears in the following tongue twisters:

  • Betty Botter bought some butter but, said she, the butter's bitter.
    If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter.
    But a bit of better butter will make my bitter batter better.
    So she bought some better butter, better than the bitter butter,
    put it in her bitter batter, made her bitter batter better.
    So 't was better Betty Botter bought some better butter.
  • I bought a bit of baking powder and baked a batch of biscuits. I brought a big basket of biscuits back to the bakery and baked a basket of big biscuits. Then I took the big basket of biscuits and the basket of big biscuits and mixed the big biscuits with the basket of biscuits that was next to the big basket and put a bunch of biscuits from the basket into a biscuit mixer and brought the basket of biscuits and the box of mixed biscuits and the biscuit mixer to the bakery and opened a tin of sardines.
    (said to be a diction test for would-be radio announcers: to be read clearly, without mistakes, in less than 20 seconds)

A BIT appears in the following palindromes (phrases that read the same backward as forward):

  • Nik’s a bit leftist, I felt, ’til little fits it felt I bask in.
  • Won’t I ban no Mae West?… I was in a van; I saw it sew Eamonn a bit now.
