Spoonerism Quiz

The clues in the first column describe words which, when spoonerized, form words which can be described by the second column. Either answer will be accepted.
Definition of spoonerism can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoonerism
This quiz considers a spoonerism to swap the first consonant sound of the word, not the first letter/consonant. (e.g. Great Wall becomes Weight Grall)
