Spoonerism: Chiclet Chops


This post is the first in a series about spoonerisms that I have said in conversation. A spoonerism is when you accidentally switch the first letters of two different words.

This spoonerism happened last week and is one of my favorites. I was making ice cream with my boyfriend, and I meant to say “Oh, let’s add chocolate chips!”, but I actually said

Oh, let’s add chicolate chops!

Which then led to us wondering what a chiclet with mutton chops would look like. So, here’s the illustrated spoonerism of chiclet chops!
