Spoonerisms: remembering William Spooner

On the anniversary of the birth of the Rev William Spooner, we honour his unintentional comic interchange of sounds, known as spoonerisms.

The Reverend William Archibald Spooner was born in London on July 22, 1844. He was an albino and suffered defective eyesight and it is thought that this caused some of his verbal confusions which were later dubbed "spoonerisms". These included "it is kisstomary to cuss the bride". Spooner, who died in 1930, was an Anglican priest and scholar, he studied at New College, Oxford, before lecturing there for 60 years in history, philosophy and divinity.

He was apparently an amiable, kind and hospitable man though absent-minded. He also had a keen intellect, which is where his problems began. His tongue barely kept up with his thought processes resulting in an unintentional interchange of sounds, producing a phrase with a meaning entirely different from the one intended. That is what is now called a spoonerism. The more agitated the good Reverend became, the more acute the manifestation of sound switching.

Witnesses claimed to have heard Spooner say:

On meeting a widow, he remarked that it was very sad, "her late husband was eaten by missionaries."

Calling a famous Irish play "The Ploughboy of the Western World".

"Blushing crow" for "crushing blow."

"The Lord is a shoving leopard" (Loving shepherd).

" A well-boiled icicle" for "well-oiled bicycle."

"I have in my bosom a half-warmed fish" (for half-formed wish), supposedly said in a speech to Queen Victoria.

A toast to "our queer old dean" instead of to "our dear old Queen."

Upon dropping his hat: "Will nobody pat my hiccup?"

"Go and shake a tower" (Go and take a shower).

At a wedding: "It is kisstomary to cuss the bride."

Paying a visit to a college official: "Is the bean dizzy?"

"Such Bulgarians should be vanished..." (Such vulgarians should be banished).

Addressing farmers as "ye noble tons of soil".

And, the classic: "Mardon me padom, you are occupewing my pie. May I sew you to another sheet?"
