Melinda, did your grandmother have more than one about Tucans?

Joan, I've not heard the thistle thistler's daughter.  I sounds like it would be difficult to pronounce.

Tony, I didn't know eagles congregated.  Perhaps there's an abundance of food there?

Wonderful eagles!

Spud, what a great tongue-twister. Far better than the thistle thistler's daughter!

Wow!  What an outstanding bird.

Can a toucan can-can?
A can-canning toucan can.
Can two can-canning toucans chat to two toucans with two cans connected by string?
They can too those crafty toucans!
Well two can. Two cunning, canny, can-canning toucans with two cans,
who know two other cunningly uncanny can-canning toucans with two cans can.
Only, however, if the two toucans, and they too,
can can the can-canning long enough to talk on two cans with two toucans.
The question thus is this: Can a toucan not can-can?
A toucan with two left feet can!
