You've got to be careful with that stuff, Mrs. Malaprop! Sure, "Dallas Cowboy" cheerleaders are all cute, but "Callous Doughboy" cheerleaders are a bunch of harsh, flea-bitten dudes in well-worn WWI uniforms who show up, bayonet the rest of the cast of the half-time show, beat the stuffing out of anyone who objects and then leave.
That might make me watch the NFL actually.
Sounds like a case of: Be careful what you ask for for fear that you might get it...
I'd PAY money to see that! :-)
As a furiner I can't say as how I'm a big fan (the balls the wrong shape for one thing) but whilst I'd pay to see Dallas (I want a souvenir hat and bayonet) I'd assiduously avoid Cleveland (just thinking about too big shoes and red noses doing choreographed high kicks gives me the willies).
So, as an expert on Spoonerisms, when do we get examples of knifeisms and forkisms?
"I'd assiduously avoid Cleveland"
Thank you for the chuckle. :)
I love Spoonerisms. I recounted to my kids this weekend the story of Rinderceller,
(her mugly other and the two sad blisters went to the bancing dall, but Rinderceller's gary fodmother turned might whice into hancing porses, and a poldy mumpkin into a cancy foach. Alas as the clock truck stwelve, she slopped her dripper...
Knifeism: a cutting remark.
Forkism: an argument using Morton's Fork.
