Spoonerism - Prank Version

Work Text:

“Psst. Tony.” Abby whispered, beckoning Tony into her lab.

“Why so secretive?”

“Have you figured out what you’re doing for your April Fool’s prank this year?”

“Not for sure. I was considering speaking only in spoonerisms.”

“What? Why?”

“They’re when you transpose initial sounds like cattle ships and bruisers instead of battleships and cruisers. I thought McGee’s reaction would be particularly amusing, though Ziva would probably just be confused.”

“Well I suppose it is more professional than your normal sticky keyboard prank, but I’m not sure that’s really a pro for doing this.”

Tony shrugged. “Anyway, why did you want to know what my prank was?”

“I have this great idea for a prank and if you didn’t already have plans I thought we could work it together.”

“Lay it on me, Abby.”

“Well, one idea was to decorate Vance’s car with sticky notes.”

Tony raised an eyebrow. “The con with that idea is that Vance is undoubtedly going to punish us or the whole agency if he can’t figure out who did it. Though I have to admit it would be hilarious.”

“Well.. We could suspend McGee’s whole desk including his chair, so that none of it touched the ground anymore.” Abby suggested.

“Now, we’re talking. There are no cons to this idea. We prank McGee all the time. The fact that there are no cons is a pro. Plus, if we combine it with the spoonerisms, it’s sure to drive McGee crazy. Let’s do it!”
