Game: What did Spooner sean to may?

Dr. Spooner found himself in quite a situation when he was invited to a very formal occasion in England, at which it was necessary for people to appear in pairs. Mrs Spooner, however, felt ill and wasn't able to go. Dr Spooner found someone else to go with him. As he greeted his hostess, he said, "Oh good evening, Mrs Wellsley. I'm so pleased to be here. And you will be pleased to learn that because of my wife's illness, I have seduced a prostitute."
