    Fire, what do mean?  Have you breached internet etiquette?
    At least no one mentioned pheasant pluckers ;)

    B3, I was messing about with found brocks and a daisy log. It got all a bit confusing.

    No need, t'was fun. :)
    @josusa47 My favourite Spoonerism is his admonishment to one of his students (allegedly) "Sir, you have tasted two whole worms; you have hissed all my mystery lectures and been caught fighting a liar in the quad; you will leave Oxford by the next town drain."

    Just remembered another spoonerism.  A man who was briefly part of our family would rouse himself from a spell of indolence with the words, "Ah well, this won't get any parsnips buttered.". One day it came out as ,"This won't get any bursnips pattered.". Needless to say, pattering of bursnips became part of the familial dialect. Those humble but delicious vegetables have been bursnips ever since.

    My aunt has always been able to "turk a cookie" since her dad said it years ago. Funny how these things stick.

    A work colleague was trying to say Kentucky Fried Chicken, instead it came out as
    Ken tried a *ucky chicken. She never lived it down.

    I can't say Edinburgh Woollen Mills - but then, why would I want to?
