 My favorite English tongue twister is:
  • There are two minutes difference from four to two to two to two, from two to two to two, too.
Here are some more nice ones:
  • The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.
  • If you must cross a coarse cross cow across a crowded cow crossing, cross the cross coarse cow across the crowded cow crossing carefully.
Not a tongue twister per se but rather a proverb with some elements of a tongue twister:
  • Don't trouble trouble until the trouble troubles you.
In Spanish, I prefer very simple tongue twisters:
  • Mi mamá me mima mucho.
  • Como poco coco como, poco coco compro.
This one is a nightmare:
  • El arzobispo de Constantinopla se quiere desarzobispoconstantinopolitanizar y el arzobispo que lo desarzobispoconstantinopolitanice buen desarzobispoconstantinopolitanizador será.
Los trabalenguas españoles son muy difícil!

The only Russian tongue twister I know by heart is:
  • Ехал Грека через реку, видит Грека — в реке рак. Сунул Грека руку в реку, рак за руку Греку цап.
The only Ukrainian tongue twister I know:
  • Не турбуйте курку - клює курка крупку.
