Jamie’s Slip of the Tongue

Reading this story from the Daily Star via DigitalSpy, I wondered why I’d never noticed the unfortunate spoonerism at the heart of it before. I mean, now I’ve seen it and read it out loud – several times – it’s like it was always there, staring me in my big moon face…

“Jamie Oliver has angered Angelina Jolie by mixing up the name of her daughter Shiloh Pitt.

According to the Daily Star, the celebrity chef made the mistake during a phone discussion with Jolie about her new movie Beowulf.

Oliver reportedly called her daughter (“Piloh Shit”) by mistake.

A source commented: “It was just a slip of the tongue. But it did sound like he was dissing her first-born.”

The chef has apologised by sending the actress a pudding made from Cheerios cereal, say reports.”

Oh. Dear.
