Here are a few more people you know and what their scrambled names (anagram) comes out as.
In a previous post about mixed up names, I mentioned Elvis. (Elvis = Lives)
Here is another one on the King. Elvis Aaron Presley = Seen alive? Sorry, pal
· The next grouping is what I loosely call political name anagrams.
Monica Lewinsky = Nice, silky woman
(Not sure if Slick Willie came up with that one)
Camilla Parker Bowles = Workable caramel lips.
(No thanks, I’m good)
Adolf Hitler = Do real filth or Heil, old fart (Enuf said)
Chairman Mao = I am on a march (and he was)
I have a piece of paper on my office bulletin board with these anagram (anagramatical?) words on it. Unfortunately, I do not remember where I got it. My memory seems to recall that it was back when I was doing some calligraphy, and I needed some phrases to put to ink.
I have been told the words are Latin, but have not verified this.
The beauty of this work is that the words read forward, backward, and both horizontally and vertically. I think there are 16 different wordsin this matrix or grid.
Are there others like this?
5/15/09 While surfing the web, I discovered this is really a palindrome square.
Isn’t it funny how things work out in anagrams. Take these famous people for example:
Elvis = lives
Clint Eastwood = Old West Action
Madam Curie = Radium came
Jim Morrison = Mr. Mojo risin’
(from the Doors song, “L.A. Woman”)
David Letterman = Nerd amid late TV
Howard Stern = Retard shown
Princess Diana = end is a car spin
Do you have a favorite famous person anagram to share?
