FAQ (Frequently asked questions):

What are Thanhisms?
Thanhism’s are spoonerisms for my lovely wife Thanh. Yogi Berra has nothing on her!
How did this start?
It started as a list I emailed to friends in 1994. There are hundreds of great Thanhisms I forgot to write down
Does Thanh know about this page?
Yes, she is amazingly good natured about it. I can’t imagine how bad I would be surviving with another language. And English has some odd sayings and rules. Thanh has a way of goofing them up in the funniest ways.
How do you pronounce ‘Thanh’?
John with a T is close enough.
Do you get in trouble for this page?
