May sod rest his goal

Tonight, in downtown Floyd, at Oddfellas Cantina, 5:00-7:00 is Woken Sperd Night. No, make that Spoken Word. I hope I can get through my little piece without any tips of the slung.

Oh Reverend Spooner, I feel your pain.

His goofs at chapel were legendary. "Our Lord is a shoving leopard," he once intoned. He quoted 1 Corinthians 13:12 as, "For now we see through a dark, glassly..." Officiating at a wedding, he prompted a hesitant bridegroom, "Son, it is now kisstomary to cuss the bride." And to a stranger seated in the wrong place: "I believe you're occupewing my pie. May I sew you to another sheet?"

I'll bet the good Rev. knows that hymn classic, "A Mighty Fartress Is Our Dog," too.

Reminds me of one story my parents tell me about but I don't remember myself. When I was a little tyke, we were on the way to church on Sunday morning and passed by a dead animal on the side of the road. I asked what it was and was told "an oppossum". Later in Sunday school, the teacher asked the class if anyone knew what an apostle was. I enthusiastically raised and waved my hand and said, "I do! I do! I saw one on the side of the road this morning!"

My favorite Spoonerism, supposedly delivered to a failing student: "You have hissed all my mystery lectures, you have tasted the whole worm, and you must leave by the first town drain!"

Now I'm wondering about the woman who called me a "shining wit".
