Mum yelled "Get and come it!" one dinnertime. It's now a regular shout.

The Spectator held a competition a few weeks ago, some of the entries were blinders. Being stupid/tidy, I've thrown the blighter out, but I remember from Basil Dansome-Ravies:
I did my best to tease her ears
and fill her hole with soap

Coincidentally, a colleague said last night that his missus was talking about popcorn...whilst not technically a full-blown spoonerism, she nevertheless coined the phrase 'cockporn'....

That Jeremy *unt... HUNT!!!! one is worthy of repeating in full.

It's his attempts not to laugh afterwards that still bring tears to my eyes!

I occasionally tell my wife that I need to put "fird in the bood feeder."

There's also one I always use; My Blowing Feet.

My far far better half has in the past mentioned snovelling show and refridging the refrosterator.
Number one son up to about eight years of age used to talk of the heaterator in his bedroom

Perhaps some kind person with YouTube access could dig out some of Ronnie Barker's spoonerism sketches.

My granny's best, when showing some old women around town: "The High Street was much nicer back in the old days when they flung hags out of the windows."

About 30 years ago after lots of trouble with my bank I closed my account at the National Bestminster Well, that's enough from me.

My grandmother was one for spoonerism by all accounts.
Her classic was Woolwich Polytechnic becoming Poolwich Wallytechnic.

Was it the Goons or Round the Horne that introduced us to the joys of Mary Hinge?

I once spoonerismed (Spoonerised? Spooned?) a lady called Kath Hunt. She was not happy.

Amazingly the BBC vetoed Kenny Everett using 'Mary Hinge' on his show but let him get away with 'Cupid Stunts'.........cupid stunts!
