Do you remember what sidekick of George Burns called the president Hoobert Heever?
Now, Burns and Allen is on. What a hoot.

I remember Harry. He was a great talent. And the perfect foil for Burns and Allen. As if Gracie needed one. She was awesome.

Its almost a Spoonerism.
"Mardon me padam, this pie is occupewed. Can I sew you to another sheet?"
"The lord is a shoving leopard,"
Named after the Reverend William Archibald Spooner (1844-1930), who would oft switch letters around (see metathesis) when he spoke, the spoonerism is a now legendary slip of the tongueSource(s): http://www.saidwhat.co.uk/spoon/index.php

Loved CO's reference to Spoonerisms. We learned about those in school, long ago.
Although I've heard that particular broadcast on an old album of bloopers, I don't remember who it was who said it. I remember he had a kind of squeaky voice in that clip, though.
