Anagram Fun

You simply must try out the "Internet Anagram Server", if you're into word play:


http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/index.html

Check out the links across the top of the page first, esp. the "Hall of Fame".

Then try the advanced section and type in your full name with these recommended parameters:

Max words: 3
Min letters in each word: 2

Then skim along in the results, prepared to rearrange the words for better meanings. Perhaps it's just my brain, but I get amused, and start giggling.

For example: "Ralph L. Vinciguerra" produces these gems (not in any order):

ARCHIVAL RUNG PERIL
ARCHIVAL PRUNE GIRL
HURL CARNIVAL GRIPE
VILE GRANULAR CHIRP
EVIL GRANULAR CHIRP
ARCHIVE PILLAR RUNG
PLURAL GRIN ARCHIVE (My favorite!)
RURAL CHAPEL VIRGIN (yikes!)
ACHING PLURAL RIVER
ARCING UPRIVER HALL (Good spot for meetings...)
PERUVIAN ARCH GRILL (Hey, I'm going to Peru in April!)
GARNER VICAR UPHILL (Poor old fellow...)
GUERRILLA CHIRP VAN (My second favorite; lookout! here it comes!)
RICH PLURAL VINEGAR
REGULAR CHIRP ANVIL
REGULAR PINCH RIVAL
HAIRPIN GRAVEL CURL
GRAVE PILLAR URCHIN
VULGAR LINEAR CHIRP
VIRGINAL HARP ULCER

As I read them, they sound like newspaper headlines and I imagine photographs. Try your name!
