What watt should Watson report to the wizardly Edison?

Greece is not full of grease, except in the gyro shops.

Tourists roam around Rome quite aimlessly, lacking a guide.

Gilbert and Sullivan have several rapid fire songs, such as some of the patter songs. Besides the Major General's song in "Pirates of Penzance"., there is also the trio in the second act of "Ruddigore" (or "Ruddygore") and the four line conclusion of a number for Ko-Ko, Pooh-Bah, and Pitty-Sing (?) in the second act of "The Mikado" that begins with "To sit in sullen silence ...."

To sit in sullen silence in a dull, dark, dock
In a pestilential prison with a life-long lock,
Awaiting the sensation of a short, sharp shock
Of a cheap and chippy chopper on a big black block

One of my all-time favourites! Thanks for reminding me

The "sit in sullen silence" bit is at the end, but the whole thing is rather jolly. This from Jonathan Miller's legendary production with Eric Idle and the English National Opera, which I saw seven times on its first run (and several more times since!).

Just cheated and resorted to Google and apparently a Massachusetts research team came up with this as the most difficult although god knows what it means:

'Pad kid poured curd pulled cod.'

Or from The Guardian:

'The sixth sheikhs sixth sick sheep.'

It also mentions this one as the hardest in the world:

'The skunk rolled down and ruptured his larynx.' - this one has to be done in Czech though!

Have fun

The Leith one was like the swans, Will Hay, wasn't it?

That one was mentioned a couple of lines down. I remember it being used by Burt Reynolds in the film City Heat with Clint Eastwood.
