    Tongue Twister

    Could someone tell me what "Сиреневенькая глазовыколупывательница с полувыломанными ножками " means...apparently its a tongue twister, and I couldnt find the translation.

    Thanks!

    Little blue eye-remover with half-broken legs
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    Это что-то типа языковой разминки. Подобные вещи используются для постановки дикции. Мне, к примеру, известен такой вариант: использовать сиреневенькую зубовыковыривательницу - это сплошной бесперспективняк!"

    The secret military device-L.L.E.O. - (the ultimate little lilac eye-outscratcher). It was forbidden to use by Genevan convention
