Tim, I liked this one because it numbed its those at the rules, but to be accurate, alliteration does not erase spoonerisms, because spoonerisms are based on phonemes, not letters per se. In order to erase spoonerisms, the words would have to begin with the same initial phoneme. The only two that meet that requirement are in the second line. Thanks for the idea, though. I liked it.

I've only met one other person that had my same feelings on orange ... so I'm not surprised. Too many negative connotations ... but it's a happy and warm color to me :)
