Default Stupid word game

cause I'm bored.

Me and my kids play this stupid word game just to be silly. You try to come up with a complete sentence using the most same sounding(or spelled) words with the fewest other words. and the words have to have a different meaning or context.

It all started when my son jokingly asked me-have you ever had Turkey in Turkey, you turkey?.

other examples:

Have you ever had Chilly Chili in Chile?

Did you ever spring in a spring in spring with a spring?

four similar sounding words like above are the most weve come up with.

So anyone who can think of a sentence with five or more same words(different meanings) with fewest exteraneous words wins!

Sorry Abby, can't think of any quite like those. But I have thought of silly sentences. One with four words that rhymed was this: The pleasant peasant's pheasant present. My sister suggested the work of some would-be successful dramatist who had a love of history. So she came up with these titles for his unproduced plays:

1) What Gaul?! - set in ancient Rome, about 47 BC, the concluding lines were supposed to be:

Messenger [runs in breathless]: "Pompey, Caesar has crossed the Rubicon!"
Pompey the Great: "WHAT!! GAUL!!!"

[Curtain]

There were also his epic about the first heavier-than-air flight, "The Wright Way". Finally his paean to General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing and the American Expeditionary Forces in "The Great War", "Tanks A Lot!".

Here's another silly one we play when we're at the beach. There's a store called sea shell city there. The challenge is to try to say it five times real fast without swearing. Or messing up. The kids, and my wife for some reason, have a hard time with it. It's pretty funny. My nephew, lor bless im, for the life of him, cannot do it, going on like three years now.

There is an old World War I song with a tongue twisting lyric, and as it continues the chorus is speeded up. It goes like this:

"Sister Suzy's sewing shirts for soldiers,
Whenever Sister Suzy's sewing Sister Suzy goes.
The soldiers write epistles,
Say, "They'd rather sleep on thistles,
Then to wear the really itchy shirts that Sister Suzy sews!"

There is a chorus where Sister Suzy's brother Gus, who speaks with a lisp, also joins in. Michael Feinstein recorded and sang the song on a record of World War I tunes.

Of course, more famous (or now, infamous) World War I tune is "Ka..ka..ka..Katie."
