Was on the phone a while ago to report a stolen credit card, but it came out as a Bolen Starclaycard...

The Memsahib in the pub, ordered a Mizzy Fineral water....

Friar Tuck was in deep sh!t when he spoonerised his name

Radio 4's Charlotte Green reading the news some years ago:

"Cross Flannel Cherries".

ITV's Anna-Marie Ashe on the local news MEANT to say "Kent Countryside". We might not have noticed but she corrected herself...

As the late Kenny Everett would say, "Cupid Stunt"! :ooh:

As per the original 'you have hissed all my mystery lessons and must leave Oxford on the next town drain'. Rev Spooner was of course the very erudite warden of New College.

I distinctly remember my mother running out of the kitchen shouting, "My sock's blinked!"

My favourite was the late, great Humph who was aksed on a local radio interview whether he was in fact also an 'orthinologist'. Too late, he realised he should have replied, 'No, more of a word botcher'.

I'm sure that was Trevor McDonald.

And the Australian football commentator who enthused about 'a magnificent punt kick from the back pocket' only that's not quite what he said. He glossed over it but it was his snickering co-commentators who drew everyone's attention to the gaffe. Well, not gaffe...

Even the most staid of cricket announcers appreciates the opportunity for a bit of wit. John Arlott once mused about New Zealand all-rounder Bob Cunis' name: 'Funny sort of name, neither one thing nor t'other'.

Apparently there was stunned silence in the commentary box before Arlott continued his observations of the match.

My wife was talking about the famous movie actor East Clintwood, and she has never been allowed to forget it.

Injecting himself with a Hyperdeemic Noodle was the best I ever heard.:)

My sister-in-law really enjoyed that film she called Crocadee Dundile.

I believe the Rev. Spooner was also responsible, may sod rest his goal, for the immortal toast: "Three cheers for our queer old dean!"

Re RJM's sports Colemanballs, will always remember Johnner's line: "There's Neil Harvey standing at leg slip with his legs wide apart, waiting for a tickle"

...and the immortal 'The batsman's Holding the bowler's Willey'.

A BBC announcer spoonerised the concert about to be broadcast from the "City Hall, Sheffield"

We mustn't forget James Naughtie introducing Jeremy Hunt the Culture Secretary...

Londonblue, I could swear it was the lovely Ms Ashe, but apparently not. I was probably still giggling when she came on air...

Always a good parade from The Royal Arse Hortillery.

Local radio station, a man of the cloth was the presenter, managed to say "we have asked 10 randy housewives" instead of "we have asked 10 housewives at random".

My friends sister was having a guest visit. She was in an emotional state and when the guest was introduced to us my friend in greatest spoonerism fashion said

"She's going to whore out her part to you all night"

Said sister was mortified.

ISTR that Bishop Spooner's classic send down included the phrase "You have tasted the whole worm."

Has anyone here listened to Wes Harrison? Master of the spoonerism!

After an excellent landing etc...
