Thanks for the heads up on that. The shielding on my old Cold War Era nuclear model was questionable (Cuban), and the weight was an issue . Iíll have to get one of these.

On edit: Here are some examples of "original" Spoonerisms. There have quite naturally been additions to the originals.

Hi Guys,

thought I would put my oar in on this one:

What's the difference between a constipated owl and a poor marksman?

One "shoots and can't hit and the other one has blue eyes!"

If you want to know the difference between A MAGICIAN'S WAND AND A POLICEMAN'S BATON - PM me!

Monty Python also did a wonderful sketch on this where a guy had rewritten Shakepeare. Not really able to pin it down as a spoonerism or a Malaprop. It's more about comic effect!

A shroe! A shroe! My dingkom for a shroe!

be ot, or not be ot, tath is the neosquit?

Marc

Spartan by our standards...

... but we're out early in the AM, so we don't want to set up too much stuff.
