You, too, could win an Anagrammy

The film industry has its awards. The TV and Music industries theirs. But what award, you might ask, graces the conceptual fireplace mantles of the playfully literate? Why, mais certainment, it's the Anagrammy!

Here are a few exemplaries from the January 2004 awards:

1st place:
Adrian Hickford with:
International Airports =
Airline transportation.

Topical Category:
Meyran Kraus with:
Images from the NASA Spirit rover =
Impart great visions of Mars here.

Other Names Category:
Allan Morley with:
The Leaning Tower of Pisa =
A spire of note, with angle.

As you can plainly read, just from these few examples, though anagramming appears to be little more than another frivolous frippery, the art of creating a really good anagram is in many was as profound as any other art, which is, of course, what makes it really fun. For a few good insights into the sheer complexity of it all, see the hallmarks of a good anagram.

Should you wish an electronic assist into the anagrammatic joys awaiting you, here's a great list of online anagramming tools. One of my favorites: I Rearrangement Servant.
