Anagrams

Anagrams are words or phrases made by mixing up the letters of other words or phrases, e.g. THE EYES is an anagram of THEY SEE. Here are some more good ones:

Mother-in-law = Woman Hitler

The earthquakes = That queer shake

Debit card = Bad credit

Slot machines = Cash lost in 'em

School master = The classroom

Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one

Dormitory = Dirty room

Punishment = Nine Thumps

Desperation = A rope ends it

The Morse code = Here come dots

Snooze alarms = Alas! No more Zs

A decimal point = I'm a dot in place

Astronomer = Moon starer

Fir cones = Conifers

The eyes = They see

Payment received = Every cent paid me

Conversation = Voices rant on

The public art galleries = Large picture halls, I bet

Election results = Lies – let's recount

Halley's Comet = Shall yet come

The Hurricanes = These churn air

And now for some celebrity anagrams...

Elvis = Lives

Clint Eastwood = Old West action

Florence Nightingale = angel of the reclining

William Shakespeare = I'll make a wise phrase

M. Caine = Cinema

Isn't this interesting!? WHO thinks up these things? LOL!

  7. The whole time I was reading those I wondered if you had come up with them yourself! I suppose not after the last thing you wrote. They made my brain hurt, but the first one was awfully funny.

  11. I've not read these all. I remember the first time i came across one and noticed it as such was for Elvis Lives. Odd. I love the morse code one too.

    And to think, Mr Toast is To Trams! Hmmm,, and there I am needing a car. Quite funny really.

  18. Oh, these are fun. Yikes, the desperation one, though! It is amazing how you can define them using the same letters. That would be a fun game, to see what you could come up with.
