Clever anagrams

Dormitory = Dirty room
Evangelist = Evil's agent
Desperation = A rope ends it
The Morse Code = Here come dots
Mother-in-law = Woman Hitler
Snooze alarms = Alas! No more Z's.
Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one
Clint Eastwood = Old West action
Slot machines = Cash lost in 'em
Conversation = Voices rant on
Norwegians = Swen or Inga?
The piano bench = Beneath Chopin
Southern California = Hot sun or life in a car

Found in Word Nerd, by John D. Williams, Jr.


  1. Two favorites:

    Ronald Wilson Reagan = Insane Anglo Warlord
    George Herbert Walker Bush = Huge Berserk Rebel Warthog

  2. Should be:
    The Morse Code = Here come dots,
    not Here come the dots

    1. You're quite correct. I've fixed the post - but it is wrong in the book (must be quite galling to the author as a word freak...)

  3. Minnesota Stan = Satan mentions

    from the Anagram Generator (http://wordsmith.org/anagram/)

  4. The best I've ever seen is: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." = "Hi. I'm a bigot. I can't stand all the different races in the land -- Negros, Jews, Yellows, Latinos, Hindu, etc. But I love diet cola, hot coffee, pie, beer, pudding. A fat rural idiot thing."
