    Default Spoonerisms.

    Spoonerisms, for those of you who don't know were named after named after the Reverend William Archibald Spooner (18441930), who often spoke these aloud. Some of his famous quotes from the chapel include "The lord is a shoving leopard," "It is kisstomary to cuss the bride," and "Mardon me padam, this pie is occupewed. Can I sew you to another sheet?." The spoonerism is a now legendary 'slip of the tongue.'

    Here's a few my wife and I came up with.
    Starting with T.V. Characters.
    Jobbie Rackson, Robbie Jackson, from Eastenders
    Fartin Mowler, Martin Fowler from same.
    .Orgers
    Fiall Nernie
    Fill Bernie
    Molin Canson.
    T.V. Presenter
    Red Togers.
    Or how about a Snot Pack, Pot Snack.?
    There are many more. How many can you think of?
    Let's all have a laugh.

    We have a few family favourites, altho' some are maybe not quite spoonerisms

    Cliff Richard - Rif Pilchard
    Basil Rathbone - Rasil Bathbone
    Hypodeemic Nerdle
    Russell Crowe - Crusty Roll
    Pop corn - Cop porn (said accidentally at the cinema, very embarrassing)
    Why be a hard rock when you really are a gem!
