A Ram Sang (AKA Anagrams)

An anagram is a word or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase. There are millions of them, but here are some of my favorites:
  • Debit card = Bad credit
  • Snooze alarms = Alas, no more z's
  • Halley's Comet = Shall yet come
  • Slot machines = Cash lost in me
  • Punishment = Nine Thumps
  • The Morse code - Here come dots
  • Dormitory = Dirty room
  • Vacation time = I am not active
  • The eyes = They see
  • Astronomer = Moon starer
  • The Hurricanes = These churn air
  • A decimal point = I’m a dot in place
  • Schoolmaster = The classroom
  • Presbyterian = Best in prayer
  • Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one
  • Conversation = Voices rant on
  • A gentleman = Elegant man
  • Funeral = Real fun
  • Hot water = Worth tea

  1. We do the newspaper JUMBLE every morning. Sometimes I can unscramble the words easily, sometimes I have to give up.

    1. The only physical newspapers we get now are on the weekend, and so it's the (harder) Sunday JUMBLE. I usually can't make a dent in it.

    1. Figured these would be your cup of tea.

    2. Yes, I like anagrams. Anagram is an anagram of granmaa!!! My granmaa was bad at spelling two ... too ...

      God bless, Kathy.

      P.S. I accept the challenge you set on my Blog.

  3. Oh my! Using your debit means you aren’t using the credit card so u probably have good credit. Funerals fun lol!!

  4. Love them, they're so much fun, but someone has to figure out a new anagram for "funeral," that's decidedly not fun. For the mourners and, I'd imagine, the "guest of honor."

    1. You're's nice to catch up with the distant relatives I only see at weddings and funerals, but 'fun' probably isn't a good word to describe it.
