Thursday's On This Day
The Rev. William Archibald Spooner, Anglican clergyman and warden of New College, Oxford, was born in 1844. He was famous for 'Spoonerisms' in which letters are switched to produce such expressions as - 'It is kisstomary to cuss the bride' (.... customary to kiss the bride) 'a well-boiled icicle' ( .... well-oiled bicycle) and ' Come into the arms of the shoving leopard' (.... loving shepherd).

Send us your favourite Spoonerism just for fun.

Joke of the day:
Rumours of a food shortage at this year's Spoonerism Awards turned out to be a complete lack of pies.
