1st - Adrian Hickford with:
People are occasionally having problems with nominations. Teething problems are common with new changes.

The most common problem is making mistake on their nomination, pressing "Post Now", rather than "Review Message", then trying to correct the mistake on their reply (not the original post). The end-result is that the anagram becomes attributed to the nominator not the author.

Helpful tips to overcome this:

1. With all nominations, please use the "Review Message" button.

2. If you have made a mistake, then use your browser's back button and correct the error, and review the message again.

3. If it is correct, then press: "Post this message"

I hope this helps and will mean less work for me to look out for and correct mistakes.



Thanks, Larry (our sometimes spokesperson) for the enlightenment; these three top troubleshooting tips are marvellous.

Nevertheless, more things we must remember when posting to the Forum:

1. When Meyran Kraus has an anagram nominated within a particular category, you might as well not bother posting your pointless one - as he will win the competition himself!

2. Note: please check both the archives prior to being tempted to post discoveries like "A carton of cigarettes - I got a taste for cancer", "A ten-inch dick - Nice and thick" and "Astronomer - Moon-starer."

3. Larry will prohibit, or even remove without comment, bothersome posts (like this unwholesome abomination) that attempt to anagram his messages.

Best wishes,


eq.2nd - Larry Brash with:
On the twelfth day of Christmas


eq.2nd - Allan Morley with:
My name is Kelly LeBlanc, D.D.S. and I am a Cosmetic Dentist in Houston, Texas. I have come to realize that not everyone has the time to take off work to get his or her teeth whitened or bleached.

I have developed a unique system for bleaching your teeth from the comfort of your home and at a fraction of the cost of what it would cost at my or any other dental office.

The normal cost for teeth whitening at my office is $350-$500, but now because of the low cost of purchasing and selling on the Internet, I am able to offer to you the SAME bleaching system for only $99!

That's right, upper and lower teeth bleached as white as you would like them for only $99! There's no unnecessary trip to the dental office or the cost of seeing the dentist or hygienist. This is how I am able to pass the savings to you, your family and friends! Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone you know that might benefit from this tremendous offer.


Congratulations, feeble moron, for making the effort to realize that 99.99% of us do not have sufficiently flexible work hours (or the money) to accommodate these moronic cosmetic procedures--not to mention recommending that we offend family and friends by telling them that their teeth need to be whitened. It's shameful when a dentist has a cavity, but even worse when that cavity is where your *brain* should be.

Anyhow, let me hypothesise as to the nature of this fine idea of yours, that mystery teeth-whitening system: is it correction fluid? Clear nail polish? A fresh coat of lead-based gloss paint each afternoon?

Yeah, well I've got another teeth-whitening offer to make to you: for a mere $3,550.00 I'll come by your office, take a hefty hammer to your teeth and then squash pieces of soft white chalk into the resulting gaps. The effect is as good or better, and it's almost totally foolproof. So, how does Monday sound?


David Bourke with:
Thanks, Richard. It's pleasing to know I have a certain style of anagramming that may, on occasions, be recognisable as typically mine. I've sometimes thought it might make an interesting Anagrammy Challenge competition to try and compose an anagram in the style of someone else. Choice of subject matter, flattering or satirical treatment, selection of words and phraseology, etc. - these are all components that might be played with to good effect to mimc or pastiche another's style.


Each anagramming style to ape:

Richard Grantham: Sage, poet... sonnets, piano, code attachments, etc.

Larry Brash: Medical conditions, alcohol, sheep.

Mike Keith: Cool mathematical feats.

JB: O, nice tame inoffensive whimsy! Car names, eating, etc.

D.A. Green: Long names of organisations.

DB: No tact, no taste, pretty tacky common filth, more sewerage.

View: Slightly-off posts. (Getting there too!)

Tom Myers: Most highly topical.

Hans-Peter Reich: Teutonic translations.

Mey: A true ego...totally inimitable!


Richard Brodie with:
Chirac says that Islamic head scarves, Jewish yarmulkes or outsized Christian crosses have no place in the public schools, and the French Council of the Muslim Faith expressed deep reservations about banning head scarves, saying it would be viewed as a discriminatory move against France's estimated five million Muslims.
Massive immigrant waves seemed safe, thus France now pays a hellish price to enjoy the cheap labor: loss of cherished values and of strong national identity; disharmonious racial schisms; very divisive public discordances; diverse multi-lingual chaos; and the sick menace of extreme, subhuman, strict wahabiist sect crazies.


Jesse Frankovich with:
The Anagrammy Awards is a monthly competition for the best anagrams posted to the Anagrammy Awards Forum. Anagrams from the Forum are nominated to compete in nine categories, and the winners are determined by popular vote.

David A. Green with:
"What is Plain English Campaign? We are an independent organisation fighting for crystal-clear language and against jargon, gobbledygook and other confusing language. We are based in New Mills, Derbyshire in England."
The aforementioned coterie imprecates annoying labyrinthine patois, raw nonsense, and swagging arcane egghead lingo, and will gladly abjure, warn and gag all folk planning on using such ragtag gibberish as defined.


Adrian Hickford with:
"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns - the ones we don't know we don't know."
US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld


We now acknowledge that, whether to the unfortunate on-looker, eyewitness (or twenty), this awkward nonsense - awkward nonsense! - AWKWARD NONSENSE! - the brainless "Keystone Kop" hogwash, as now written and presented here, makes George W. Bush look like a new-found two-term thinker (rather than an outspoken, cantankerous stunted monkey)!
What now?
