Bill McIntyre went to see Dr. Spooner.

"Morning, Mr. Tacinmyre."

"Morning, Dr. Spooner," Bill said.

"I have your rest tesults in. It seems you have append acute-icitis. You also have ardening of the harteries."

"How do we treat this?" Bill asked.

"We'll have to point an amakement with Dr. Malaprop, a surgeon."

So Bill went to see Dr. Malaprop.

"Hello, Dr. Malaprop. Dr. Spooner sent me over."

"Ah, yes. You're the one with astute appendicitis and harkening of the archeries, aren't you?"

Bill changed his mind about having the surgery. He went home and blew his brains out instead.

    This whole thing started with someone saying "hardening of the arteries" and I, having Spoonerisms on my brain, yelled out, "Or ardening of the harteries," which yielded absolutely no response. So I thought, "With a gem like that I need to make a drabble."

    You certainly did, Christopher, to excellent effect. Reminds me of the attractive woman who went to see the doctor with chest pains. The doctor gave her a thorough examination. “You’ve got acute angina” he announced. “My tits aren’t bad either!” she replied.
