Spoonerisms. What is Your Favourite?

Professor Spooner after having delivered his speech regarding the retirement of the college Dean.. said  "Raise your glasses  ladies and gentlemen., I now propose a toast to our Queer Dean".
  There have been many faux pas  in the past , some real political clangers and such, which one is your favourite?  BTW The Rev W Spooner was the  dean of  New College at Oxford university around the mid 19th cent. a pasty faced weired looking bloke.
 Go on ... Have a go.

Just Desserts
I was at my favourite restaurant and had a lovely meal
If I finished all my food then a pudding was the deal
I’d relished every morsel and was pleased as a Cheshire cat
The dessert menu was on its way, Oh I couldn’t wait for that

The waitress bought the menus and I rubbed my hands with glee

She came to take the order – we had waited as you do
She finally turned to me and said ‘oh Madam what can I get you’

Oh stiffy cockie pudding please was my swift reply
I didn’t realise what I’d said till I saw the tears form in her eye
I went as red as a beetroot and the others began to laugh
At my spoonerism which turned into a complete gaffe
