Verse and Wordplay Maps: AMERICAN ANAGRAM SWARMS
Incidentally, if you want to enlarge any slide in this presentation, simply click on it. (To escape from enlarged mode, click on the little 'x' in the upper right of the dark background field that will surround the enlarged slide.)
The above slide includes the important political anagram 'FEAR NOT, IL DUCE' (to appreciate this letter-scramble you would have to remember that Il Duce - the 'leader' in Italian - was a frequently used form of address for Benito Mussolini).
After discussing the reshufflings on these maps with my nephew M.H., I am embarrassed to have to admit that I neglected to include the name of the high-profile California performing entity 'If-Loner Duet CA'. Sorry about that oversight!
To review the entries in a recent National Anagram Contest that used the phrase 'ELECTION FRAUD' as the target for letter-scrambles, check this blog-link, (or you could go to Giorgio's Facebook Photo-Album collection, where much of this material has also been posted).
As often happens, until corrected by some callers-in, I inadvertently left out a few relevant locales. So, apologies to the residents of Tunisian Loot and Alto Unionist CT, Stout Coaltin and U.S. Cottontail IN, and of Antisnout Cot IL, and Locust Tot Inn IA.
If you would like to see the complete 'anagram swarm' based on A VERY STABLE GENIUS, check this post.
