Fun With Anagrams

Hello, People!

I missed Monday’s Meeting yesterday. Don’t ask. It was a strange kind of day for me.

So today I thought I would bring you some more fun with words. Last time it was Palindromes. Today it’s Anagrams! Aren’t we exciting? Don’t answer that.

I’m sure you are all familiar with anagrams but let me refresh your memories. An anagram is a word, name or phrase formed by rearranging the letters of another, using each original letter only once. Some of the best ones I think are ones that manage to link the new word, name or phrase to the original one in some way, such as when ‘listen’ becomes ‘silent’.

Let’s see what I could come up with.




Astronomers = No more stars

Conversation = Voices rant on

The country side = No city dust here

If I wanted to see what I could do with my name “Jackie Phillips”…….. Jail Slick Eh Pip

Clint Eastwood = old west action

The check is in the mail = claim “heck I sent it (heh)”

snooze alarms = alas! no more z’s

William Shakespeare = Willie makes a phrase

To Breathe is to Write = a tot be shortie write

the detectives = detect thieves

debit card = bad credit

vacation times = I’m not as active





That’s just a few I found or made. I bet you have some to add to the list! Let me know.

  1. You guys are too smart for me. I’d have to look them up online and steal them from there.

    Oh, wait! I tried it with Susan Hunter.

    Susan Hunter = She runs a nut

    I have no idea what that means, but it works. 🙂
