A Thoonerism Spread, whatnow?

"A blushing crow."

And, for pure iconoclastic value:
"The Lord is a shoving leopard."

Used to love Kenny Everett's Cupid Stunt, the "Hollywood actress", even if the spoonerism was only in the name.

So I went to a Ren Faire once - not normally my thing as I dislike them - and got to see Zilch the Torysteller - he's a guy who does retelling of Shakespearean plays in spoonerisms, mostly Jomeo & Ruliet. A few videos to be had on Youtube - the guy's a hoot - particularly talking about Jomeo's Pancy Falace!

http://www.torysteller.com/ - apparently he has two CDs of spoonerized Tairy Fales
South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

Someone I know was going on and on about how great his tai chea tasted.

Question: does the potential interchangeability in pronunciation between:

a nice guy, and;
an ice guy

(presumably the first is a friendly fellow and the second is a bloke who delivers ice) count as a spoonerism?

Or does this fall under the "Eats shoots and leaves" category?

Ronnie Barker's version of Cinderella is the best.

You can find it easily on YouTube as well. Absolute genius.



This is the story of Rindercella and her sugly isters.

Rindercella and her sugly isters lived in a marge lansion.

Rindercella worked very hard frubbing sloors, emptying poss pits, and
shivelling shot.

At the end of the day, she was knucking fackered.

The sugly isters were right bugly astards. One was called Mary Hinge,
and the other was called Betty Swallocks; they were really forrible
huckers; they had fetty sweet and fetty swannies. The sugly isters had
tickets to go to the ball, but the cotton runts would not let
Rindercella go.

Suddenly there was a bucking fang, and her gairy fodmother appeared.

Her name was Shairy Hithole and she was a light rucking fesbian. She
turned a pumpkin and six mite wice into a hucking cuge farriage with six
dandy ronkeys who had buge hollocks and dig bicks.

The gairy fodmother told Rindercella to be back by dimnlight otherwise,
there would be a cucking falamity.

At the ball, Rindercella was dancing with the prandsome hince when
suddenly the clock struck twelve. "Mist all chucking frighty!!!" said
Rindercella, and she ran out tripping b**** over ollocks, so dropping
her slassglipper.

The very next day the prandsome hince knocked on Rindercella's door and
the sugly isters let him in. Suddenly, Betty Swallocks lifted her leg
and let off a fig bart. "Who's fust jarted??" asked the prandsome hince.
"Blame that fugly ucker over there!!" said Mary Hinge. When the stinking
brown cloud had lifted, he tried the slassglipper on both the sugly
isters without success and their feet stucking funk.

Betty Swallocks was ducking fisgusted and gave the prandsome hince a
knack in the kickers. This was not difficult as he had bucking fuge
halls and a hig bard on.

He tried the slassglipper on Rindercella and it fitted pucking
ferfectly.

Rindercella and the prandsome hince were married. The pransome hince
lived his life in lucking fuxury, and Rindercella lived hers with a
follen swanny.

OMG. Is this what my dad was referring to when I was a kid and instead of saying Cinderella he'd say Rindercella? I thought it was his own Spoonerism but that is exactly the kind of thing he would laugh at!
But that was when I ruled the world

Forgot all about that . . . was hilarious, and a friend of mine can recite most of it at the drop of a hat, which is always highly entertaining.

When talking about getting shots from a doctor, my friend said he hated getting shots with a "hypodeemic nerdle."

He definitely got his tangue all toungled up!

Nothing to do with spoons; they were actually named after a 19th century English academic William Spooner, who used to mix his words up. (See Ronnie Barker's sketch above).

A while back, I was watching the Evita and a line in one of the songs goes "a frantic tumble and a shy goodbye". A frantic tumble, "spoonerised" is a tantric fumble - much the same meaning!

To quote a somewhat Spoonerism line from one of my favorite British comedies, "Blackadder", starring Rowan Atkinson;

When a situation goes irreversably wrong, Edmund Blackadder would say:

"Rhymes with Clucking Bell".

Think about it.

And in my repertoire also - when I hear someone speak a load of B.S., my response is: "Bulltish!". (sic.). A politically correct way to say the real thing in mixed company - of course, they get it.

(smile)
