...or is it intentional spoonerisms...or is it, in fact, just all humour? Odd that Oz brewers Coopers should buckle under political pressure and take down their billboard ads which read "Forget the monarchy, support the publicans":
"It crossed a boundary, because it said 'Forget the Monarchy', and that is a political statement. Why not say forget the republicans?" Australian Monarchists League national chairman Philip Benwell told Reuters on Thursday.
So...apparently it is OK to make political statements if you agree with them. That being the case, the billboards really should have read "forget the monarchists, support the publicans"!
