lol now that really made me laugh🙂

"an umberella" is the answer:)

It will go up a chimney in the down(closed)form, but cant go down a chimney in the up (open) form, hehe 😄
any one got another brain teaser?, I'm sure we can have a few giggles 🙂

Hehe, don't expect any intellectual effort from my side. It's autumn, and I'm already in bed with a terrible cold, sniff, sniff.

hehe, like I said an umberella opens ;)

@ That tongue twister is that bad. I learned the version ...
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if woodchuck could chuck wood.

But I found out recently that there's a second verse. Something along the lines of ...

If a woodchuck could chuck wood, a woodchuck would chuck wood.

Or something like that.

Moyashi-sensei, since you know a bit of doitsugo, try this tongue twister and repeat it as fast as possible:

"Fischers Fritz fischt frische Fische, frische Fische fischt Fischers Fritz."

It's a classic... :)

The second line to the woodchuck one is "a wood chuck would chuck as much wood as a wood chuck could chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood."

Here's a really good one. In the guinesses book of world records as the hardest tongue twister...

"The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick"

It's even hard to say slow!
