Hiding words


Words hide in other words. We call them anagrams. Here are some of the famous ones.

William Shakespeare  = I’ll make a wise phrase

The eyes = They see

Christmas = Trims cash

Guinness draught = naughtiness drug

Western Union = No Wire Unsent

Breasts = Bra sets

A Decimal Point = I’m a Dot in Place

Dormitory = Dirty Room

Princess Diana = end is a car spin

Astronomer = moon starer

Actor Sylvester Stallone = Very cool talentless star

Narcissism = Man’s crisis

President Clinton, of the USA == To copulate, he finds interns

Clint Eastwood = Old West Action

Elvis = lives

Christmas = Trims cash

A shoplifter = has to pilfer

The Hurricanes = These churn air

Schoolmaster = The classroom

Slot machines = Cash lost in ’em

The public art galleries = Large picture halls, I bet

The Morse code = Here come dots

Election results =  Lies – let’s recount

The ménage à trois =  A giant threesome!

This one works in words and in numbers

Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one

Longer ones are far more complex and unlikely to be accurate

“To be or not to be: that is the question, whether its nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.”
Can be changed to
“In one of the Bard’s best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten.”

  1. Wow, excellent, Sidey! I have only heard thus far of anagrams being one word made up of the letters from another word, not necessarily of the same meaning. I’ve never heard of phrases and sentences – mostly of the same meaning!
