    can anyone give me a really good anagram (mixing up the letters of words to form
    new ones)? i mean, we all know simple ones, like "hot date"-> "the toad", but
    can someone come up with some to beat "miss theoretical scientist"-> "this smart
    testicle is on ice"? or can you do better with a historical figure than
    "klemens von metternich"->
    "retch milk, vent no semen" (sorry-that's nasty)?
    people who have been playing me lately have discovered my tendency to do this to
    their names 🙂 .

    This post came close to being removed through fear of deterioration,
    but I'm sure it won't get too rude... here's a clean one, a pathetic
    attempt...

    The Quote

    "To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the
    mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."

    And the Anagram

    "In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero,
    Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten."

    it's genius. did you invent it? although the easiness of the anagram
    generally is directly proportional to the number of letters, provided the
    vowel density is high. i hope this doesn't deteriorate. it's entertaining.

    I did not invent (discover?) it I'm afraid, it was told to me by a friend.
    I have several more anagrams somewhere...not as good as that one
    though. They are all short two word ones...I'll see if I can find them
    when I get a chance.

    PS Ooooh. I can remember one off the top of my head (it's probably
    quite famous that everyone's heard of):-

    one for the poetic history buffs: "Topographical anomaly" --> "Marco Polo gaily nap't".

    When smoking a dubie with a friend with an Indian name, one could say I "loaned my vitamins to Rao" (an anagram of "amotivational syndrome" ) I am aware of the grammatical error.

    "scatalogical apologist" --->"So gloat, local pig sciata!"
    (I hope this mitigates the rectum humour)

    (Of course "the rectal jokes"--->"O! He talks! Reject!"
