Someone sent this to me. I thought the word and Bard buffs would like
it.

Cheers,

An Anagram is a word or phrase made by transposing or
          rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.  Here are
          some examples:
                  Dormitory       ==      Dirty Room
                  The Morse Code  ==      Here Come Dots
                  Slot Machines   ==      Cash Lost In 'Em
                  Animosity       ==      Is No Amity
                  Snooze Alarms   ==      No More Z's, alas.
                  The Public Art
                      Galleries   ==      Large Picture Halls, I Bet
                  A Decimal Point ==      I'm a Dot in Place
                  The Earthquakes ==      That Queer Shake
                  Eleven plus two ==      Twelve plus one
                  Contradiction   ==      Accord not in it

          This one's amazing: [From Hamlet by Shakespeare]
                  To be or not to be: that is the question, whether
          tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of
          outrageous fortune.     ==

                  In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our
          insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life
          turns rotten.

          And the grand finale:
                  "That's one small step for a man,
                   one giant leap for mankind."
                          -- Neil A.  Armstrong
                                    ==
                  A thin man ran, makes a large stride,
                  left planet, pins flag on moon -- on to Mars!
