    The Wordplay Thread

    This is the place to dump all your witty palindromes, anagrams etc.

    Just to get the thread going:

    Marcus Edward Trescothick: I scored a duck? Screw that, Mr!

    Vanilla Pepsi: Nipple Saliva

    Mother-in-Law: Woman Hitler

    Marc Robbins: Man Robs Crib

    And some palindromes:

    Step on no pets.

    Rise to vote, sir!

    Ed, I spotted a clam in an animal cadet topside.



    Of course, feel free to contribute any other types of wordplay.

    I wrote this back in November 2003 (back in the days when life was simpler, motivation was measured in breadcrumbs and laughter its own reward) - this seems as good a place for it to see out its twilight years (it was originally referenced as 'DD finds anagram dictionary')....

    Not long to wait now before Shane Warne can return to the Australian test side, his mum all forgiven and him squeaky-clean. In keeping with today's theme, the following is the last test side he played in, against England in November/December 2002.

    Now I hope you won't have to use your imagination TOO much before you agree with me. Is this the rudest cricket side of all time? Or is it me?

    No, it is me, isn't it? You can tell me. I can take it (well, Shane knows someone who can).

    Two I know from years of following Football:

    David Ginola is an anagram of ****** dildo

    Finsbury Park (underground station near Highbury) backwards is krapy rub snif
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Douglas is an anagram of loud gas.

    Immature, but funny nevertheless.

    Reminds me of Full Frontal, where they had this guy who always went on Ray Martin's TV show taking advantage of Ray's indignance to the word "crap" (back when it was a swear word), and one day he asked how Luna Park was pronounced backwards (with the word order still the same).
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    Still catch Full Frontal on the Comedy Channel. The originals and the "Totally Full Frontal" which wasn't as good, but it still had some of the original cast.

    Classic show.

    I don't know how Full Frontal managed to go on so long and never get old. Why can absolutely none of the sketch shows these days emulate that? It's so far ahead of the competition in a way only Family Guy can relate to nowadays.
