Fun With Words > The Wordplay Web Site

I found what seems like a quite amusing site: Fun With Words > The Wordplay Web Site. I haven’t looked fully into it yet, but I found it searching for a gift, a book on Spoonerisms, Stoopnagle’s Tale is Twisted.

While the site seems to have a lot of things, a review of the book is in order so you know what I mean. That, and because it is amusing.

Remember the story of Prinderella and the Since? It begins “Here is a story that will make your cresh fleep. It will give you poose gimples. Think of a poor little glip of a sirl, prery vitty, who, because she had two sisty uglers, had to flop the more and do all the other chasty nores, while her soamly histers went to a drancy-bess fall. Wasn’t that a shirty dame?”.

This book contains 43 of Colonel Stoopnagle’s fantastic spoonerism tales, including Beeping Sleauty, The Pea Little Thrigs, and The Woy Who Cried: “Boolf!”.

Reichard Lederer said “With whiz and witdom, Keen James entertainingly presents the tips of the slung and thud and blunder in our tough and rumble language. After reading these English terrors and tinglish errors, you’ll finish the book optimistically and misty optically.”
