    Spoonerisms

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Tricky on 01-Jun-03 18:56. corrected speeeeeelling of a word, "circus". Thanks Hans.)</P>The answers to the clues below will be in the form of a spoonerism. The initial consonant sounds will be transposed, much like BLUSHING CROW becomes CRUSHING BLOW. The keyword is sounds. I'll do the first one...


    A. Precipitating hard / Expressing anguish, as a lion = <font color=blue>POURING RAIN / ROARING PAIN</font color=blue>
    B. Descend, as a ladder / 10

    Quick solving <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
    B, C, D, E, F & H - all solved correctly. I really thought E would keep everyone going for a while...

    G remains unsolved, for now.
