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.

Elvis=lives
The eyes=they see
Conversation=voices rant on
Debit card=bad credit

And finally, stifle is an anagram of itself.
