I remember once, Strong Bad said "Cutting arts, state-of-the-edge!"... but I don't remember the email he said it in. In which he said it. --DumDe 20:24, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. It isn't exactly a spoonerism, but is there any other article word play like that could be documented? Or is there one already? --DumDe 11:07, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Drain bamage

"Drain bamage" is by no means unique to the Homestar Runner Universe. Google returns abundant results. (Hyetal 17:06, 9 July 2009 (UTC))

It is a spoonerism nonetheless. If words are mangled, it's a spoonythingy. Just because the joke has been used before doesn't mean it is less of a spoonerism or even a non-original joke. I "invented" that joke before I even knew of Homestar Runner. --Jellote wuz here 17:29, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Hoot-Smawley

Hey there: MN congresswoman Michele Bachmann actually made this very mistake recently and I'd guess the mention in Homestar Runner is a reference to this. I do not know if that even matters, but there you go.

A Three Man Oney?

In the sbemail Army, didnt the whole song and dance with the three man oney, and the three to one marney, and other sayings like that, represent a spoonerism? me thinks so! It is very close. Sure, there were a few words added, but it still reads spoonerisms all over it!

Nope. They weren't even close to being spoonerisms. Just similar syllables. — Defender1031*Talk 17:32, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
