BookBrowse's Favorite Quotes

Every now and then we take a break from our famous literary quotes to bring you something a bit different. This week brings some amusing anagrams:

From the pithy:
Dormitory = Dirty Room.
Evangelist = Evil's Agent.
Desperation = A Rope Ends It.
The Morse Code = Here Come Dots.

To the mathematical:
A Decimal Point = I'm a Dot in Place.
Eleven plus two = Twelve plus one.

To the political:
George Bush = He bugs Gore.
George Herbert Walker Bush = Huge Berserk Rebel Warthog.

And, last but not least, the adventurous!
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. =
A thin man makes a large stride; left planet, pins flag on moon! On to Mars!

In the next issue: More anagrams!
