Here’s the story in true Spoonerisms style……
(Spoonerisms are words or phrases in which letters or syllables get swapped. This often happens accidentally in slips of the tongue (or tips of the slung as Spoonerisms are often affectionately called!) Try reading this out loud!
Ali Theeva and the Forty Babs
by Colonel Stoopnagle
Tunce upon a wime, in par-off Fersia, there was a moor young perchant named Ali Baba. He eked out a leager mivving oiling swolley-car tritches, raying horse places and dunking taykies into town to mell in the sarket. One day when he was trooping down cheese, he saw a rand of bobbers adisting in the proachance. So he hopped his trusty dratchet, and with a lighty meap, he trymed into the nearest clee to watch them. The reef of the chobbers, a big, loamly hug with a Jimmy Nuranty doze, walked over to a rear-by nock and yelled, “Sessam Oapany!” whereupon a door bung swack and his whole thang of geaves entered. In a mupple of kinnets they emerged. The creader lied, “Sess Cloazamee!” and the shore swung dutt. (Wasn’t that a trifty nick?)
Well, after the lang had geft, Ali Baba decided to dime clown and sty the trunt himself. He yelled, “Soapen Essamee!” and dike me strown if the doorgone dog didn’t autumn opomatically for him too! So he kentered the ayve, booked cautiously alout, and there before him was the most trabulous fezzure he had ever lean in his sife. Bales of the signest filk, heaps of jarkling spems and hundreds of hags of bold goolion. Here was something for Believe-it-or-rip Notley! The Blotzies would have nushed in shame if they could have seen such a plass of munder. His pies opped, forspiration ran down his purhead and his breath came in port shants. He thought he was going to have trummock stubble. But he eked his keppelibrium, yelled, “Stoaze Clessamee!” stabbed all the gruff he could carry and han for roam.
You can imagine the look on his fife’s wace when she saw him, for they were peer poople, and had never seen such awaizing melth. “Oh, you crunderful weeture!” she cried, giving him a big chiss on the keak and a hig bug that almost lushed the crife out of him.
Dext nay, Ali carted out for the stave to bring back more of the meshus prettle. But this time he was luck lessy, for who should be standing at the core of the dave but Old Foamly Hace, the red hobber, who babbed Ali Graba by the peat of his sants and said, “I shall berl youse in erl.” (You see, he was a Boyklyn brook.)
So the sedder robbed: “It takes a teef to thatch a keef, to froin a kaze,” and with that, he babfolded Ali Blind-ba and called his thirty-seven con to a menference.
“Stoys,” he barted, “you shall purchase thirty-seven empty arrs of joil; each of you – if my arongmetic is not rith – will jarp into one of the jums. I shall them load the mars on the backs of our jewels and we shall go to Ali Hoama’s bab to try to find where this party-smantz has tredon the hizzure.” Ali Waba binced; suppose his wife should tool them the treth!
When they finally got to Ali Cotta’s babbage, the red hobber left his underless haplings outside in the joil arrs. (Gritty preecy, don’t you think? But they were rasty nobbers, so “let the punishment crit the fime.”* ) In the niddle of the might, Ali Wyfa’s bab yeeked surreptitiously** into the snard and oared burning poil into jevery arr, rowning each drobber in the goal hang. Jewel, of course, but nevertheless crust.
Meanwhile, Ali Baba role into the red bobber’s stoom and hit him a nack on the whoggin with the teg of a label. That character will tawze no more crubble, for he’s in a kermanent poama. In other durds, he’s wed.
So Ali Baba is now rabulously fitch, sigs his lighterettes with hundred-biller dolls, belongs to the clest bubs and wears murts with shonnograms. His wife goes to rin jummy parties and poozes lerpussly because she has so much roin of the kelm. Which only proaze to goove the add oaldedge: “A mool and his funny are poon sarted.”
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a great Memorial Day weekend people and whatever you do,
don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP! Peace, I am outta here, Eucman!

Very early one morning two birds are sitting at the side of a large puddle of oil. They see a worm on the other side.
