I don't know about you, but I sure love me a good spoonerism. Some people utter them with nary a laugh nearby. No pause, no mention of it. They just keep on rolling. And me, I always thought I had an excellent sense of humor, but they just make me laugh. Why? I can't really explain it.
But, for example, when your very polite and lovely mother who would never allow anything crass or vulgar escape her lips says "beets and pisses" instead of "bits and pieces," you might choke on your food & die then and there in the restaurant.
I just realized i've already talked about spoonerisms. And that was a good one. Well, here we go.
A friend recently referred to the celebrity Jack Human, also known as Hugh Jackman, and I really had leftover laughs. Uncontainably so. I think that should be the new generic name for a person. You know, instead of John Doe. Jack Human. love it.
