Anagrams

Anagrams are words or phrases made by transposing or rearranging letter of other words or phrases. This is a list of some pretty good ones, obviously there are people out there with way too much time on their hands.
Lets have a look at them...

"Dormitory" - Dirty Room
"The Morse Code" - Here Come Dots
"Slot Machines" - Cash Lost in 'em
"Animosity" - Is No Amity
"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


Character is who you are when no one is looking.

Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: Anagrams

I'm anagramless.


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

My name is not "they all." Therefore I do not say it!
