"The anagram is one of the greatest follies of the human spirit; one must be foolish to enjoy them and worse than foolish to create them." (Quote by G.J. Hecart)
Anagram foe,
Refine that decorum!
Some jests of snobs
May bother the Forum.
A lot of the jewels here
Got high quality -
Notice the notion
At this honest plea!

Anagrammatist, the
Merry, the jestful, the
Sane, the quiet ones. Oh, to life!

"The anagram is one of the greatest follies of the human spirit; one must be foolish to enjoy them and worse than foolish to create them." (Quote by G.J. Hecart)

The effete Joe
Hecart's not
Eloquent, is he!

A joyful topic that whets the brain is
No folly. Oh...
And one's
Got to
Remember this... he's
A Frog too.
Mute him!

Rosie Perera with:
Anagramming is quite a high art, not some effortless one. Oho, no! The oaf that jeers at these, he probably couldn't touch it if he stole notes from Mey the Jew.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Anagrams often offer the wise theme, honed jingle, mushy poem, or taboo tale--some qualities that bring joy to the enthusiast; the French oaf chortles too!

Ellie Dent with:
ANAGRAMS are HIS folly: no, not those
Here, for the fact is the GENIUS can gloat
For one job's with the mob, to transpose
The immediate theme...the joyful quote!

Tony Crafter with:

Dharam Khalsa with:
ANAGRAM critic (the foe here)
shows loathsome hateful etiquette. Ooh!
By sorting and rejoining some letters,
the offshoot of that may be just phenomenal!

Dharam Khalsa with:
ANAGRAMMING is not for the squeamish--
the offshoot may be too brutal (oh-oh)!
Her challenge, then, is just to alter it,
offer a sweet sentiment to echo deep joy.

Rosie Perera with:
Anagram enthusiasts just won't stand for that obloquy from some French fool. So they jeer at him in belle poetic notes: "I hate thee, I hate thee! Go home, frog!"

Adie Pena with:
ANAGRAMS: See the honorable creation, the honest effort of the jestful minds, of the jolly egos at the hip, hot anagrammy.com, the quite notorious website.

Dharam Khalsa with:
ANAGRAMME: Le Français a oublié qu'il les a écrits aussi (he forgot that he wrote them too). Oh, I bet he's forgotten months of enjoyment, then the depths of joy!

Andrew Brehaut with:
Anagram: I hope the healthy craft of letter jumbles is enough for the game boys to hoodoo the mass of socialites who frequent the entertainment joints.

Adie Pena with:
ANAGRAM? Oh, it's a joining together of the same mishmash set of jumbled letters to consequently lay out a piece for the benefit of those who honor the art.

Dharam Khalsa with:
Anagram: If letters shuffled join smoothly into the infrequent masterpiece in the "Long" category, he/she hoots the oath "Frabjous!"

to find a sense of joy, them to transpose.


1st - Tony Crafter with:

Whoopee! All set for the cruise tomorrow! All my elegant gowns, best swimsuits, packed. How exciting!

Our women's Red Hat chapter organised this "girls-only" trip.

It will be my first one. Ooh! Cannot wait!

Whole day out at sea, beautiful. Spotted whales, dolphins too. Met our Captain - John Houghton. Very nice man.

Red-hot. Lounged around the pool, swum a while, then bumped into Captain Houghton on the upper deck.

He invited me to join him at his table for dinner later. Felt honoured and had a wonderful time. John's very handsome.

Won £80 in the casino. Captain asked me to take dinner with him in his own cabin. Had yummy meal complete with oysters and champagne. He asked me to stay the night, but told him no; I would not be unfaithful to my husband.

At loose-end, so lounged around pool, though got sunburned so went for drink in pool-bar. Stayed there all day. John Houghton saw me, bought me several drinks. John's really charming. Once again asked me to spend the night in his cabin, but refused. He told me, if I did not let him have his naughty way with me, he would sink the ship... I was thoroughly shocked.

Today I saved 1600 lives.

Three times.

'Hi honey, this is Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?'

'No, Daddy. She's in the bedroom with Uncle Alec.'

(After a brief pause)

'... But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Alec.'

'Oh yes I have, and he's upstairs in the bedroom with Mommy, right now.'

(Brief Pause...)

'Er, okay, this is what I want you to do. Lay the phone down on the table, hurry off upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and call to Mommy that Daddy's car is just coming into the driveway.'

'Yes, okay Daddy, just a minute.'

(A few minutes later...)

'I did as you said, Daddy.'

'And exactly what happened, honey?'

'Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug and hit her head real hard on the dresser and now she isn't moving at all!'

'Oh, my God! What about your Uncle Alec?'

'He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on as well. He was really scared, and he jumped straight out of the back window and landed head-first in the swimming pool. But I guess he didn't know that you took out all the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he's dead.'

(A long pause...)

(A longer pause...)

(An even longer pause...)

(Then Daddy says...)

'Swimming pool...? Erm, so... is this 02080 113456?'

'No, I think you have the wrong number...'

2nd - Dharam Khalsa with:
"Do you believe in life after death?" the boss asked his newly-hired employee.

"Yes sir, of course," the new worker replied.

"Well, that makes everything all right," the boss continued. "Right after you went home early yesterday
to attend your grandmother's funeral, she stopped in to see you!"


At breakfast the fatherless little Petey, an irreverent youngster, asked his retiree grandmother Beverly,
"Hey, how old are you?" Whereupon, she sweetly testified, "I'm thirty-nine and holding!"

Petey assessed her for a moment, then precociously asked, "How old would you be if you let go?"

3rd - Adie Pena with:
Castration [refer to book on spaying or neutering or fixing] is any foolproof action, surgical or chemical treatment, by which a male loses the functions of his testicles for life. Fact: To prevent or minimize erections, eunuchs or "ball-less fellows" have performed as gentlemanlike people, from the best harem servants to old guardians of big-boobed bombshells.


The sport of choice for the urban poor is basketball, for maintenance level employees it's bowling, for front-line workers it's football, for middle management it's tennis, for supervisors it's baseball, and the sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is golf. The amazing conclusion is the higher you go in management, the smaller your balls become.

Dharam Khalsa with:
I found it interesting to read about how the name of any of the Elements of Atomic Numbers greater than 100 is determined:

Until a better name is given, the nomenclature is derived from the atomic number of the element using the numerical roots. The roots are put together in the order of the digits which make up the atomic number and terminated by "ium" to spell out the name. The final "n" of "enn" is elided when it occurs before "nil", and the final "i" of "bi" and of "tn" when it occurs before "ium".

Next, the symbol of the element is composed of the initial letters of the numerical roots which make up the name.

The root "un" is pronounced with a long "u", to rhyme with "moon". In the element names, each root is to be pronounced separately. ~
The following is the chronological list of the temporary designations for the fresh elements which have been confirmed but not yet scientifically named:


Therefore, based on the aforementioned criteria, the temporary names for almost 100 hypothetical elements from ununoctium down through unpenttrium have been identified beforehand.

For entertainment or show, the smart mathematician or theoretician could attempt to determine the correct designation of each element. Oh, it might take someone like me the better part of a tormented lifetime indoors (a hellish idea), but the names I assigned would be obsolete before then, so I won't bother now.

A small sample from a coven's spell verses found in the play "MacBeth"

2nd - Christopher Rump with:
A set of twenty chemical elements, anagrammed into a different set of twenty elements. All forty elements are distinct from the sixty used in Mike Keith's 30/30 doubly-true anagram here.

lithium + chlorine + potassium + titanium + copper + arsenic + yttrium + cadmium + barium + gadolinium + gold + polonium + radon + americium + einsteinium + fermium + rutherfordium + dubnium + hassium + roentgenium
neon + sulfur + gallium + germanium + strontium + technetium + indium + iodine + promethium + dysprosium + holmium + iridium + lead + astatine + francium + radium + protactinium + seaborgium + bohrium + copernicium

If you replace each element with its atomic number (position in the periodic table), there is still equality, making this a 20/20 doubly-true anagram.

3 + 17 + 19 + 22 + 29 + 33 + 39 + 48 + 56 + 64 + 79 + 84 + 86 + 95 + 99 + 100 + 104 + 105 + 108 + 111
10 + 16 + 31 + 32 + 38 + 43 + 49 + 53 + 61 + 66 + 67 + 77 + 82 + 85 + 87 + 88 + 91 + 106 + 107 + 112
(= 1301)

Thus, combining this 20/20 element anagram with Mike Keith's 30/30 anagram yields a 50/50 doubly-true anagram of 100 of the 112 currently named elements.

3rd - Tony Crafter with:

People could all learn so much from this elegant and gracious lady.

You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deluded and deranged young man who shot President Reagan in 1981.

Hinckley was absolutely obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster and, inside his twisted mind, loved Jodie so much that, to make himself well regarded by her, he decided to assassinate President Reagan. But his attempt failed - the President was wounded but survived.

There is speculation that Hinckley may soon be released, having been considered as rehabilitated. Consequently, you will all appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to John Hinckley:

To: John Hinckley
From: Mrs. N. Reagan

My family and I wanted to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we are with the great strides you are making in your recovery.

In accordance with our country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we wanted you to know that we bear no grudge against you for shooting President Reagan.

We are fully aware that extreme mental stress and pain could well have driven you to commit such a desperate act.

We're confident that you will soon make a complete recovery and return to your family to rejoin the world as a healthy and productive man.

Best wishes,

Nancy Reagan and Family

P.S. While you have been incarcerated, President Barack Obama has been banging Jodie Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into that.


A Key Way to Rearrange Our System.

Easy! Let's put the seniors in jail, and the criminals in a nursing home.

This way the seniors would enjoy access to showers; hobbies; a walking (or jogging) area and any games they enjoy; they'd have unlimited free dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc. They'd learn new work-skills and receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed emergency assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice weekly and their clothing ironed and returned to them as new.

A guard would look in on them by arrangement every twenty minutes, and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They'd enjoy family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would enjoy access to a library, a weight room, a pool, humane spiritual counselling and education breaks.

Basic clothing. Shoes, slippers, pyjamas, are free, and any legal aid can be arranged on request.

Private, secure rooms for all, with an outdoor exercise yard, with gardens.

For entertainment, each senior would have a PC, a TV, a radio, and make daily phone calls.

There would be a Governor and a board of 11 directors, to hear any complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that they must strictly adhere to.

The 'crooks' would get near-cold food, be left alone and unsupervised, lights off at 8pm, and a shower once a week. Must live in a tiny room for eternity, and pay $9K per month with no hope of getting out.

Justice for all. Ok?

While walking down the street one day, a corrupt Senator is tragically hit by a car and dies.

His soul arrives in Heaven and is met by St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

"Welcome to Heaven," says St. Peter. "But, before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're
not sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in..." says the Senator.

"Well, I'd like to, but we have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do is have you spend one day in Hell and one in Heaven. Then, you can choose where you'd like to spend Eternity."

"Really? I've made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven," says the Senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to Hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the center of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his buddies and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is dressed in evening attire and happy beyond belief! They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about all the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. After having played a friendly game of golf, they dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the Devil, who is really a very friendly guy and is having a fabulous time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.


The elevator goes up to the top floor and the doors reopen in Heaven. St. Peter is waiting for him. "Hi! Okay, it's time to go to Heaven..."

Twenty-four hours pass with the Senator joining a group of contented souls, migrating from ethereal white cloud to fleecy white cloud, playing musical harps and lyres, singing holy hymns in unity. They have a very nice time. Before he realizes it, the Saint returns.

"Well, you've spent one day in Hell and another in Heaven. Now, choose your own eternity."

The Senator hesitates for a minute, then answers, "Gee, I would never have said it before...I mean Heaven has been delightful; however, I think I may be better off in Hell."

St. Peter escorts him to the elevator, says, "Bye!" and he speeds down to Hell.

When the elevator doors open at the bottom, he's standing in disbelief on a barren hillside, covered in waste and decayed garbage. He sees the stylish friends, dressed in filthy rags, weaker and ill, picking up trash and putting it in a bag, as more trash falls down from above.

The Devil awaits him, "Hello!" Then, he reaches out to the politician and puts an arm around his shoulder.

"Hey! I-I-I-I don't believe it!" the Senator stammers. "Yesterday I played golf here, saw the extravagant clubhouse while everyone fed me delicious lobster and caviar. I drank the sweetest champagne and had an ideal heyday, yet suddenly there's just this wasteland of vile garbage! My friends look so miserable. What happened here?"

The Devil unleashes a hollow demonic howl, "We lie, lad! Yesterday, we were campaigning. Today, you voted."
