What's In A Name? Contest

Using my name (Dan Champion) and Inge's Anagram Generator, here's what I came up with:

a damn phonic
a nomad pinch
chip madonna
coin hand map
and the always popular DNA hop manic.

Pretty lame. So what's your name? Best anagram from the letters of your name wins 100 points. You have until Monday evening.

On the one hand, the Spanish function came up with "Rompe te" (it breaks you).

When I spelled out Mister E Poet, I got "sí teme torpe" (Yes, I was afraid of clumsiness).

In English, I don't do as well.
Mr. Topee (a pith helmet, apparently from RonCo).

If I spell out mister, I got:
épéeist mort (I'm deadly with a foil)
Epitome rest (I'm the king of napping)

"Bulk Jay Cola?"


Nice sword reference, Mr. E: that can be your medieval villain name.

Then again, what do I know? I'm a damn phonic.

Wow... what full name did you use Stacie? That's a humdinger.

Posted by: Big Dan at October 9, 2004 09:38 PM

I was always jealous of Stacie's anagram. Sigh.

Can I add in an apostrophe? If so, then--using my full name of Joel Andrew Caris--I am Alice's Downer Jar. I always knew I was good for something. Poor Alice.

I'm also:
Andorra Jew slice
Acorns derail Jew (oh, the mental images)
acrid answer joel
ailed jaw scorner
ajar CEO swindler (I didn't know I worked for Enron!)
censor jawed liar
CEO-drawn jailers (could use a few more of those)
CEO jails redrawn
ice Jane warlords!
Joan lewd scarier
Joan liar screwed

With just Joel Caris:
is joel RCA (I don't think so . . .)
relic soja
ace jr oils (sounds like I'm the son of an oil tycoon)
cajole sir
carl is joe (I never knew!)
CEO jr lias
jail score

With my middle name:

• toy jock Allah bunny (velveteen, too!)
• a chunky, jolly baton (for Pavaratti)
• a hot July nylon back (for streetwalkers to beat the heat)
• Hulk cannot ably joy (so Hulk smash!)
• call Johnny about KY (the state, not the jelly)
• unknot achy ally job (someone has to fix Bush's mess)
• act blankly, you john (and maybe the cops won't bust you for soliciting)
• (Question: LA-style face lift? Answer:) NY honk job, actually
• ahoy, junky NC ballot! (even if John Edwards isn't on it)
• all-county hanky job (trying for a Guiness record)
• cut honky banjo ally (we need to streamline our jug band)
• jolly KC-NY autobahn (drive as fast as you want!)
• hotly lay junk bacon (mmmm, bacon)
• ban jolty UN halcyon (gotta make sure those drug imports are safe!)

Anagrams! Now more fun with middle names!

Um, Joel, I'm not sure I would have posted "jail score." Just don't serve any time, ok? And if you do, ask for solitary.

Acorns derail Jew!
Hulk cannot ably joy (so Hulk smash!)
cut honky banjo ally!
call Johnny about KY!

UPDATE: Jail score, if you do get convicted, be sure to call Johnny about KY.

Just my first and last, Dan -- Stacie Whitacre (the "I am" is not part of the anagram).

And, Joel...I'm pretty sure there's an erectile-dysfunction medication with some form of your name on it.

Posted by: Stacie at October 10, 2004 04:26 PM

that's a good all-purpose insult, too: "I'm pretty sure there's an erectile dysfunction medication with your name on it."

Posted by: Big Dan at October 10, 2004 09:46 PM

I don't know if I should be proud or not to have initiated a brand new insult.

I think I'll just be confused.

. . .

On second thought, definitely not proud.
