1 A Peat Nuzzle
Oxford don, the Rev. William Archibald Spooner (1844-1930) might have preached: "The Lord is a shoving leopard!" Certainly, he has blessed us with "spoonerisms": speech occurrences where parts of words in a phrase have switched places, creating a form of wordplay. All the clues and answers in this puzzle involve spoonerisms. My thanks to Jake and Kathleen, regular Fun Trivia crossword solvers, who suggested this style of puzzle. Enjoy!

6 Compound Interest
Crosswords are interesting, but when you use compound words, they get really interesting. Compound words comprise two smaller independent words within them. Many of the clues (marked) have clues for the two smaller words plus one for the compound word. Leverage both types of clues to get the compound word quicker.
