    This is almost a Spoonerism, though an intentional one. This kind of inversion was named for an English clergyman named Spooner who accidently said from the pulpit, “God bless the queer old Dean.” (Having meant to say, “God bless the dear old Queen.”) At work, I kept calling the flat fee option for searching our database the fat flea option. Never quite caught on.
