A spoonerism is a transposition of initial sounds of two or more words (as in "tons of soil" for "sons of toil"). Armed with this definition, what is a spoonerism for what you do when you go fishing vs. a literary work you don't care for?



Answer

The first is to 'bait the hook',
and the second is to 'hate the book'.
