SPOONERISM

n. the transposition of initial or other sounds of words, usually by accident. (1895-1900 after W. A. Spooner (1844-1930), English clergyman noted for such slips).

This list was inspired by statman8's list, which in turn was inspired by stormseeker75's list. Some of these are from my own personal experience, others are not.

Feel free to add your own~

I've played a lot of organized hockey over the years, and one memory I'll always have is of a Pee-Wee coach who had no business being around children.

Amidst his usual torrents of expletives, one time he screamed at one of my teammates to "pass me the damned BATER WOTTLE!!"

Not long after, at a wedding reception with my first wife, she returned to the bar for a drink she clearly did not need.

She mumbled to the bartender that she wanted a WEMON LEDGE with her drink

The chilly greeting I got at the door wasn't helped when I said
