The Anagram thread

Recommended Posts

An anagram (Greek anagramma 'letters written anew', passive participle of ana- 'again' + gramma 'letter') is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; e.g., orchestra = carthorse, Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one, A decimal point = I'm a dot in place. Someone who creates anagrams is called an anagrammatist. The original word or phrase is known as the subject of the anagram.

Any word or phrase that exactly reproduces the letters in another is an anagram. However, the goal of serious or skilled anagrammatists is to produce anagrams which, in some way, reflect or comment on the subject. Such an anagram may be a synonym or antonym of its subject, a parody, a criticism, or praise; e.g. George Bush = He bugs Gore.; Madonna Louise Ciccone = Occasional nude income; William Shakespeare = I am a weakish speller, Roger Meddows-Taylor = Great words or melody. Another goal of anagrammatists is to produce an anagram which is not only new, or previously unknown to others, but is also considered sufficiently clever to become widely known and enter the canon of famous or classic anagrams. /wiki.

So, do you have any anagrams? Post some here! Remember to post the actual word, too!

you can make some here.

I'll start:

Vegetarian=Vinegar Tea

Rick Brewster=Brewer Tricks

There is no God=Hedonist Gore :mrgreen:

Winter night=Thinner Twig

Chuck Norris=Urchins Rock

Your turn :)

Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.

If you're removing letters, that's not an anagram...

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Barrack Obama = ar a bomb rack

That actually doesn't work, because his name is "Barack Obama" - only one R. :-)

But, I suppose, as written, you're correct...
