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 a collection of almonds, cashews and walnuts as opposed to rejected dogs at the animal shelter?


Hint

Nuts vs. Mutts. The opposing words don't necessarily have to have the same root spelling. They just need to be pronounced similarly.
