The Anagrammy Rules
1. Do not bother to post woeful anagrams which use terrible grammar or obscure spelling into this cool site.
2. Do not write obscene,"off" anagrams with bed-sex. No... not nice! Cut it out!
3. Do contribute just the very best, choice, apt anagrams, which consist of orthodox content, without which the outcome will often be: "no win".

The Comic Rules of Anagram Conduct (For now, for tomorrow...)
1. A worthy phrase must be in (or close to) English. (I jest!)
2. The total can't contain the exact (or inexact?) word on both sides.
3. The result must be apt, too. Or funny. (Hope it's both!) (Or *brief*!)

But when the language is bad ("crotch words"), the crew must conceal it so it isn't highly visible on our own "Main" web image!
