couple of issues ago (No. 22,
November 2000), I presented the solutions to some anagram puzzles that had
appeared in Issues 10 and
15 (November 1998 and
September 1999). I am taking the chance today to offer a small handful of
further anagrammatical treasures unearthed for your appreciative
to occasional contributor Katisha for drawing my attention
via the editor to some of the following.)
me introduce you to a few Bikwilians who might need putting straight, if
one could only figure them out:
about a quartet of anagram-generating names from further afield:
tales (= Bill Gates)
class (= Alec Guinness)
leaping milk (= Spike Milligan)
modern (= Piet Mondrian)
great charmer (= Margaret Thatcher).
some miscellaneous rearrangement magic:
(= dirty room)
(= a rope ends it)
(= daily sex)
plus two (= twelve plus one)
(= partial men)
(= is no meal)
(= they see).
truly amazing one, if a bit confused in its tenses:
man ran; makes a large stride; left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!
one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. (Neil A. Armstrong).
believe it or not, the following epic:
In one of
the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries
on two fronts about how life turns rotten.
from no less famous a passage than:
To be or
not to be: that is the question, whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.
