    An Anagram, as we all know, is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.

    The following examples are quite astounding!

    Dormitory -> Dirty Room
    Evangelist -> Evil's Agent
    Desperation -> A Rope Ends It
    The Morse Code -> Here Come Dots
    Slot Machines -> Cash Lost in 'em
    Animosity -> Is No Amity
    Mother-in-law -> Woman Hitler
    Snooze Alarms -> Alas! No More Z's
    Alec Guinness -> Genuine Class
    Semolina -> Is No Meal
    The Public Art Galleries -> Large Picture Halls, I bet
    A Decimal Point -> I'm a Dot in Place
    The Earthquakes -> That Queer Shake
    Eleven plus two -> Twelve plus one
    Contradiction -> Accord not in it

    This one's amazing: [From Hamlet by Shakespeare]

    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. -->

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


    George Herbert Walker Bush -> Huge Berserk Rebel Warthog
    George Bush -> He bugs Gore
    Ronald Wilson Reagan -> A long-insane Warlord (or Insane Anglo warlord)
    Ronald Reagan -> A darn long era
    Leroy Newton Gingrich -> Yon Right-winger Clone
    Margaret Thatcher -> That great charmer
    The Conservative Party -> Teacher in vast poverty
    Spiro Agnew -> grow a penis

    And the grand finale:

    "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." -- Neil A. Armstrong -->

    A thin man ran; makes a large stride; left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!
