Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

Welcome to the wonderful world of anagrams! An anagram is a word or phrase created by transposing the letters of another word or phrase. For example:

LISTEN
=
SILENT

As you can see, "LISTEN" and "SILENT" each have one E, one I, one L, one N, one S, and one T, so they are both anagrams. One way to think about it is to take Scrabble tiles that spell out a certain word or phrase, and ordering them to make whatever words you can make out of them. Try it yourself with some of the anagrams in this thread!

Here is a quick overview on the "types" of anagrams. An anagrams is usually meaningful, and has some sort of relation to its base. For example:

The eyes
=
They see.

Some anagrams flow like a sentence or complete thought along with their base. I have found no names for these elsewhere, so I'll just call them sentence-grams. These are usually signified with ~, as in:

Miss California's
~
as firm as silicon.

The least common variety of anagram is called an antigram, which is simply an anagram with an opposite meaning to its base. These are signified with ‡, as in:

The Oscar Nomination

It's not a cinema honor.

To read more on anagrams, including some classic examples, what makes a good anagram, how to make your own, and much more, click here. (Technically, that's a FAQ for a Google Group related to anagrams, but it's a helpful resource.)

This will be a thread for posting classic anagrams I find to be good or interesting, as well as having a place for some of my own creations. I will not credit any resource when I find other people's anagrams, as it's hard to trace back the exact roots of many anagrams. I will have a section dedicated to my own creations, though.

Warning: Incomplete as of now

And it's not even complete yet! It'll never be complete, really . I'll add anagrams that I find interesting on various online sources, and I'll post my own creations in their own section when I come up with some that are noteworthy.

Bump.

George Bush is a never-ending source of gaffes. One other thing he's a never-ending source of is amusing anagrams. This one says it all:

The President of the United States of America, George Walker Bush = See doubted chief kept in White House...great letters for anagrams!

Bump.

I have a great haul today...two anagrammatic life stories, and one anagrammatic poem!

In this poem, every line is an anagram of the title.

Washington Crossing the Delaware
A hard, howling, tossing water scene.
Strong tide was washing hero clean.
"How cold!" Weather stings as in anger.
O Silent night shows war ace danger!
The cold waters swashing on in rage.
Redcoats warn slow his hint engage.
When star general's action wish'd "Go!"
He saw his ragged continentals row.
Ah, he stands - sailor crew went going.
And so this general watches rowing.
He hastens - winter again grows cold.
A wet crew gain Hessian stronghold.
George can't lose war with's hands in;
He's astern - so go alight, crew, and win!

This takes the name of President Suharto of Indonesia, and anagrams it to things related to his life.

President Suharto =

**How he ran the country**
South-eastern drip.
Dishonest rapture.
Hate? Not surprised!
Reported this anus.
Disaster up throne.

**He rules with an iron fist**
Has tortured penis.
Desperation hurts.
He send up traitors.
He'd nurse patriots.
Suspend traitor, eh?
Pains? He's tortured.

**Off-topic, but funny**
Rude short panties.

**Economic problems cause unrest**
Disaster open hurt.
Rather no disputes.
Depression? A truth.
Tourist sharpened.
Ah! Riots erupt! Ends?

**Students protest, want resignation**
Protested. Ah, ruins.
Oh! Students repair.
I rap students' hero.
Or students are hip.
So, hints departure.
O! pushed restraint.

**Finally, he resigns**
This departure, son.
Death not surprise.

Finally, Princess Diana has her own anagrammatic life story, too.

Diana, The Princess of Wales =

**Diana meets Dodi**
Di - separation, cash, new self.
Ascend a few relationships.
He is new fiance. A sports lad.
We sip carafes on the island.
No faeces in her. Pat wild ass.
Ends as if won special heart.
World pants: "She is a fiancee".

**The fateful night**
Whole feast. Dances in Paris.
Fastens special new hairdo.
Dancers? A wife sips ethanol.
Ethanol in car? Few as pissed.
Wine, ale, passion. Deft crash.
Deficient! Wears no lap-sash.

**The car crash**
Pow! She dies in fast car lane.
Fast speed, alien wino crash.
s***! We die of car's lane snap.
No witnesses? Failed? Ah, crap!
Sees crash. Nationwide flap.
News fiends: "A car hits a pole".
Whose filets in a crap sedan?|
Warns: defecates in his lap. O!

**They try to save her**
A safe windscreen --> hospital.
Hospital news: I feared scan.
Ashen, a specialist frowned.
Fail as chest pain worsened.
She is now a step near flacid.
We fear: "Ascend in hospital?".
Dies! A France hospital news.

Line was: "Death of a princess".

**then the funeral**
Hearse leads - no swift panic.
Send few Palace historians.
Elton's idea is crap. He fawns.
Candle in the ..... wife soars, a.s.p.
Worshiped! Ascent's a finale.
Heap flowers - incessant aid.
A waste of pansies, children.
Oh! Least few rancid pansies.
Spencer said: "it has one flaw".
The Earl said: "news of panics".
Sister dies. How can fan plea?

**Charles keeps a stiff upper lip**
Alas, Prince astonished few.
Answers: "Death is final - cope!"
We find Charles passionate!
So the Palace insiders fawn.
As the Palace frowns inside.
Scraps a wife. On thee island.
If the Palace's insane words....

**Was it a conspiracy?**
A plot is a French News's idea.
The Press wailed: "A can of sin!"
Nailed the Press. Saw if a con.
Flinch. Speed, was it a reason?

Bump.

I have anagrammed, verse by verse, the Ten Commandments, as they appear in the King James Version of the Bible. This is inspired by the wonderful works of Lardy Girl and Meyran Kraus, but I am using a different version of the Commandments than either of them (Lardy Girl used an abridged, summary-ish version, and Meyran Kraus has used an updated translation).

I have Exodus 20:2 up to Exodus 20:17 successfully anagrammed. I welcome comments, critiques, improvements, suggestions!

 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. = But I echo the thought of Father, He who fought to help you dodge the doom of slavery and beating. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. = Thus, be safe! Have honor go to Me, the Lord! Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. = Hah, heathen! Never have any statue of an idol. While breathtaking, they're unrighteous; they tarnish the Savior's name. Ignorant attention on them is taken to be a threat. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; = To pray to and glorify the statue of an idol god is sinful. To he here who doth hitherto question my truth, that then commands the further devotion of another faith; harsh judgement will then be given to them. And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. = Heaven hands men a duty: men must know to respect common demands of The Almighty. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. = I'd hurt the foolish man that invokes the name of The Lord Almighty on sin, then take that loud villain straight down to Hell. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. = Repel hobby at home; make this day better. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: = Ah, slob! Today, do all hard tasks, with no luxury. But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: = However, Saturday's thy total activity rest. No harsh, annoying work then through the day. Don't tend to that thornbush, save thy strength for any other day. Maybe try sitting still. Then, do that thornbush in a month. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. = The Heavenly Father, He has made the whole world, the land, and the odd beasts and birds that inhabited it, in more or less seven days; and He relaxed after the last day. Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. = Show that you had loved thy family, thy brother and thy children. Hug them, then hope that they not anger God. Thou shalt not kill. = Hunt talk? I'll shoot! Thou shalt not commit adultery. = My! Don't touch all that moisture! Thou shalt not steal. = Thus, a last loot then. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. = Ah, that honesty fails us...bent lies about things are wrong. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's. = Christians, never be envious of an obnoxious man. The things this man has, though they're costly, have no worth. Oh, that is irony! Only stress virtuous things: sharing both truth and honor.

Bump.

In English class today, I read a poem called Invictus by William Ernest Henley. I wondered if I could anagram it, because it looked interesting. I hope I did well; I welcome critique.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

=

I move from very cloudy nights
Obscure as chasm depths immense.
O! I act so proud of my rights
For handing me my own defense.

That, through a dull, confounded life,
My choice would never be to frown.
Through cutthroat battles of my strife,
My constant head cannot come down.

That hollow hole of shattered heads,
That chance will batter you to shreds.
The consequence? I still am here.

Perhaps I can bunch man to be
Unbounded, yet off on the brink.
It's palpable that I am free;
I see that I am what I think.

I only skimmed the anagrammed version, but I'm sure if you presented it to some people to analyze it would still work great

The Invictus anagram? Couldn't have been more than 30 or 40 minutes. The letters mostly cooperated, but some words were a challenge (and I spent a long time trying to fix the problem of one syllable being dropped from a line ).

That's a lot of new anagrams, JWinslow23 . I didn't have time to read them yet except parts of the 10 commandments but I'll check them out when I have a chance.

Thanks. It's fun making anagrams. It's even more fun when the letters just wanna fit for you. Although, arguably, it's the most fun trying to see how to get the letters to cooperate .

Donald John Bump.

I found some amusing anagrams of the Pledge of Allegiance.

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.
=
US Flag Code: If seated, stand at attention, face the flag, join in with pride, right hand over the heart. Bicycle police and soldier units in uniform will be obliged to salute.
=
We, inhabiting Americans, to fulfill a solid region, hatch justice, profit placidity, defend, be good and well, and steer in free evolution, signed that rich tablet to the USA.
=
I, B.H. Obama, new leader of the Free World, just one ebony politician, plight to change the racists' sullied attitude, indict infective drug dealers, and also fight inflation.
=
Birth of the Elected

I, Washington,
I, Garfield,
I, Cleveland,
I, Taft,
I, Wilson
I, Johnson,
I, Reagan,
understand the helpful, doubtless attitude of good American liberty.

I accept.
=
Those dirty, flag-waving Republicans
often pander without limit
just to get Bush the oil thief elected again.
Arnold's bold farce election
in California is hated indeed.
=
I promise to be faithful to this country under certain chief regulations and standards, eject ego, and dwell in a high, beloved titbit of wealth, politics, lineage, and life.
=
I, George W. Bush, an evil Republican fascist, used God to inflict pain on the world, end life, facilitate death, create militant jihad rebels, and to let youths die for nothing.

Here's a long one I constructed, based on those anagrams, but updated for the current Republican moroninee.

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.
=
I, Donald J. Trump, a Republican egotist, shall, if I get voted in office, fight ISIS, change tiny fences built on the southern border to a wall, aid deceit, and alienate the world.

As well, I made an anagram of a trending image macro explaining how Trump was "never once accused of being racist" through his 30 years in the public eye.

"Donald Trump has been in the public eye for over thirty years...and he was never once accused of being racist by anyone until he decided to run against the Democrats."
=
He could conceivably be President of the United States of America, and screw us over. It's already great, you ninny! Don't cheat and beg! He can end! Hurry, Bernie, stop him!

Bump.

Inspired by the April 2004 Anagrammy winner in the Special category, I decided I'd make some astrological anagrams! I'm going to take the same source text and anagram it into 12 horoscope-like predictions. I don't know whether or not they'll come true, I'm not an astrologer.

WORK IN PROGRESS!

The art of astrology lies at one level in the construction of accurate profiles of personality and relationship, through the skilled interpretation of symbolic patterns, and in mapping the general tendencies that present themselves over the course of our lives. This is a profoundly developed form of personal analysis, which has influenced modern psychology in its theories of personality and temperament (though in a selective and much simplified form). Astrology also brings a unique form of spiritual guidance, at the level required by individual consciousness according to its level of personal (or soul) growth.

=

Aries

Mercury, Venus, and the Sun enter many houses, and pilfer hundreds of satellite dish TVs, then allege it's some sort of "accident". Evil snobs.

You're quite a concern, pressuring opposition like the California Panthers in Super Bowl Fifty. It did result in a loss in the end, however, so do not get too hellish.

You never feel bladder discomfort at inappropriate times. Actually, it's never appropriate. I'd suggest to call a doctor.

You'll complain ventriloquism college is involved, so you offer to transfer off as a freshman at Dishcloth College of Peyton Manning. The highlight of sophomore year is launching cream on the principal.
