http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoonerism

(also known as a 'tip of the slongue')

To a student: "You have hissed all my mystery lectures, and were caught fighting a liar in the quad. Having tasted two worms, you will leave by the next town drain" ("missed ... history," "lighting a fire," "wasted two terms," "down train")
