A spoonerism is a pair of words that can have the initial sounds switched to form new words. For example, "loose morals" is a spoonerism for "moose laurels"(note that the pairs do not have to be spelled the same - only sound the same) From the definitions below can you figure out the following spoonerisms?

A quiz about a celebration....an irritating person that is never punctual

An irritated facial expression....The top of Mr. Avalon's head

A prideful diminutive insect....An ill-behaved sombrero

Hollandaise is one....Going from one side of the street to the other in a bad part of town


Solution:

A party test....A tardy pest

Cranky frown....Frankie crown

A haughty gnat....A naughty hat

A creamy sauce....A seamy cross
