Elocution lessons

 
Elocution lessons are a necessity for a strict upbringing.
The posh tutor made us recite the following until we were catatonic:
“Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper, where’s the peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked?”
We wondered if it was all worth the wacking wad she wanted for her wages.

stiff upper lip
father’s welsh accent
slips past the guard
