Reverend William Archibald Spooner (1844-1930) was Dean and Warden of New College, Oxford. Although a gifted conversationalist, he was frequently prone to the verbal slips which came to be known as 'spoonerisms'. The word spoonerism is defined as 'an accidental transposition of the initial sounds, or other parts, of two or more words'. Examples of Spooner's mangled phrases are: "Sir, you have tasted two whole worms; you have hissed all my mystery lectures and have been caught fighting a liar in the quad; you will leave Oxford by the town drain." (on dismissing an undergraduate); "Kinquering Congs their titles take." (when announcing the hymn in New College Chapel); and, "Let us glase our asses and toast the queer old dean." (When toasting Queen Victoria).
