I choose to interpret that as a portmanteau word rather than a spoonerism, and would endorse the sentiment entirely. wunch = wonderful + bunch

And as it's almost that time (actually past that time Eastpondially) - H A P P Y.. N E W.. Y E A R, everybody!

I've certainly heard and maybe even used 'gobsmacked' to mean flabbergasted, but I don't recall ever having heard 'gobsmacking' before.
