One of my favorite Spoonerisms (by the actual Rev. Spooner, no less) is "The Lord is a shoving Leopard". The imagery just kills me. :)
Every finger is touching and searching / Until your secrets come out,
In the dance, as it endlessly circles / I linger close to your mouth.
This sentence is as succinct as possible.

The best Spooner Spoonerism is of course:

"You have deliberately tasted two worms. You hissed my mystery lectures, and were seen fighting a liar in the quad. You will leave Oxford by the town drain."
