For those of you who have already read Ulysses for the 8th time and have no excuse for the 9th reading because what you have not understood until now you never will, there is an exciting new challenge. The Spoonerism Edition of Ulysses will now and then and here and there change some words of the original so that a spoonerism is resulting. It is your task, dear reader, to find those places** and revert them to their original wording and ponder the changed wording and meaning and the consequences for the history of the novel in the 20th century (A.C.).

* He raised his eyes to a torn poster on the wall.

** Stoom and Blephen are a good place to start.

       I'm guessing the book starts making more sense this way.
