Here are some anagrams, courtesy of mikey's funnies.

An anagram, as you probably know, is a word or phrase made by transposing or rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.
Here are some good samples:
Dormitory = Dirty Room
Desperation = A Rope Ends It
The Morse Code = Here Come Dots
Slot Machines = Cash Lost in 'em
Animosity = Is No Amity
Mother-in-law = Woman Hitler
Snooze Alarms = Alas! No More Z's
Alec Guinness = Genuine Class
Semolina = Is No Meal
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 Shakespeare's Hamlet]
"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: [From the moon, Neil A. Armstrong]
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."

"A thin man ran; makes a large stride; pins flag on moon, left planet. On to Mars!"
