Anagrams

*I totally stole this from someone on BlogExplosion, fully intending to give them credit, but I don't remember who is came from...so, sorry 'bout that.

An anagram is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. The following are exceptionally clever. Someone out there either has way too much time to waste or is deadly at Scrabble.

DORMITORY:
When you rearrange the letters:
DIRTY ROOM

PRESBYTERIAN:
When you rearrange the letters:
BEST IN PRAYER

DESPERATION:
When you rearrange the letters:
A ROPE ENDS IT

(I know I'm morbid, but that one is one of my favorites)

SEMOLINA:
IS NO MEAL

GEORGE BUSH:
HE BUGS GORE

ALEC GUINNESS:
GENUINE CLASS

THE MORSE CODE:
HERE COME DOTS

THE PUBLIC
ART GALLERIES:
LARGE PICTURE HALLS, I BET


SLOT MACHINES:
CASH LOST IN ME

ANIMOSITY:
IS NO AMITY
(I also like this one...)


MOTHER-IN-LAW:
WOMAN HITLER

SNOOZE ALARMS!:
ALAS! NO MORE Z'S

A DECIMAL POINT:
I'M A DOT IN PLACE

THE EARTHQUAKES:
THAT QUEER SHAKE

ELEVEN PLUS TWO:
TWELVE PLUS ONE
(And also this one...)

This one's truly amazing:
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.

And for the grand finale:
"THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND." - NEIL ARMSTRONG
The anagram:
"A THIN MAN RAN; MAKES A LARGE STRIDE, LEFT PLANET, PINS FLAG ON MOON! ON TO MARS!"
