A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have their initial sounds switched to form new words. The pairs need only sound the same, not necessarily be spelled the same (power saw & sour paw, horse cart & coarse heart). There may sometimes be one or two connecting words (kick the stone & stick the cone, king of the rats & ring of the cats). Given the following definitions, what are the spoonerisms?

1) spoiled Neanderthal child & courageous cougar
2) child of a sorceress & liquid in a trench
3) milk and cheese & fops who are imaginary beings with magical powers
4) fondle feathers & Amsterdam


  1. Kind of like Darles Chicken's famous book: The Sale of two Titties?

  2. Witch's daughter / ditch's water.

    These are hard. Anything with numbers for those of us a little less advanced? : )

  3. cave brat/brave cat.

    That was easier.

  4. Number three can't be dairy foods, can it?

  5. 4) fondle feathers & Amsterdam

    seven points. These are really horrible! LOL

  6. These were tough:
    1) cave brat & brave cat
    2) witch daughter & ditch water
    3) dairy foods & fairy dudes
    4) touch down & Dutch town
