Hot news from the anagrammatic parallel universes....



Beyond 'God' and 'Dog'

By Timothy Noah and Bruce Gottlieb

Pappy Chatterbox, amateur etymologist and author of The Man Who Stole
the Mona Lisa ("Instead of reading five books this year, read this
book five times!"--Chatterbox), passes along the following anagram,
which has been circulating lately on the Net:

"President Clinton of the USA"


"To copulate he finds interns"

Chatterbox invites the anonymous but obviously gifted author to step forward.

Sadly, Chatterbox must also warn this anagramatic John Henry ("Her
Johnny") that his days of glory may be numbered. The folks at
Anagram Genius (http://www.anagramgenius.com/) have invented a
computer program that turns an ordinary sentence into hundreds of
anagrams--ordinary or obscene, American or English--and it's pretty
darn good. Their website allows you to enter a sentence and have the
results emailed to you (http://www.anagramgenius.com/server.html).
It returned the following gems for "President Clinton of the USA":

"Nice flaunter, pot dishonest";

"Counterfeit dishonest plan";

"Rats! Telephone disfunction";


"'Let's fornicate' not punished!"

The site also notes that "Monica Samille Lewinsky" becomes "Slick
Willie's my A-one man!" (submitted by Dave Polewka) and "Hillary
Clinton" becomes "Only I can thrill." (submitted by Donald L. Holmes).
