Abuse Alliteration


Charismatic charity chairman Charlie Chung chastised chain-smoking charwoman Charlotte Chambers.
‘Charlotte,’ chattered Charlie. ‘Chaste, childless Charlotte. Charmlessly choking choirs, chomping chorizo chunks, chanting chancel charivaris.’ Charlie chronicled Charlotte’s chronic cheek. ‘Change, Charlotte, change!’
‘Ch!’ chuckled chubby Charlotte. ‘Change? Charlatan Charlie Chung champions change? Charming!’
‘Charlotte,’ Charlie chided. Charlotte chewed chillingly.
‘Choose Christ,’ challenged chagrined Charlotte, channelling Chaplin’s chutzpah.

  3. I think the fact that the "chs" made a variety of sounds only improved this example of abused alliteration.

  7. charwoman?

    Anyway, that's a 50-something Ch combo.

    It's the words with both 'ch' and 'g' sounds that are really challenging to pronounce quickly in a tongue twister. At least there are a few 'k' sounds in there, like chronic.

  10. Very nice. I've been doing this kind of thing for years just for fun. Why didn't I start a blog? My best work was about a wrangler named Wriggly Wright. Try that one, Joel!

  12. Nowadays most of the students are concerned rather than what's their aim and what they are learning. If we are not learning than we are just wasting our time, money and effort.
