Chinese Tongue Twister


Aqila wrote this for me to recite out loud.
I failed miserably, without a doubt. 
I managed to understand the meaning, though!

十 四不是四十
Shi si bu shi si shi,
十四是十四,
shi si shi shi si,
四十不是十四
si shi bu shi shi si.

Very simple meaning:
fourteen is not forty,
fourteen is fourteen,
forty is forty,

There is the continuation or a variation to that...
十是十
shi shi shi
四是四
si shi si
十四是十四
shi si shi shi si
四十是四十
si shi shi si shi
四十四只石狮子是死的
si shi si zhi shi shi zi shi si de

Guess what the meaning is! :)
