Ever notice that sauce & cause use the same letters?

Anagram.

No, has nothing to do with preparing for a colonoscopy. (Think about that…now THAT was funny!)

An anagram is when same exact letters of one word are rearranged to form one or more different words.

I happen to love all word games…Words With Ftowns, Scrabble, Boggle, Word Find, etc…even though I only tied for 1st (with several others) in the 4th grade spelling bee when none of us could spell “pigeon” correctly. “Pidgeon” is the actor Walter & no matter how many times you say “pigion”, it’ll always be wrong every time!

So embarrassing & humiliating!
My anagram is “medical”…declaim, decimal, claimed.

BTW, “maliced” is not a word & “Alice, MD” is a bit sketchy.

Here’s are some of the more amusing anagrams I’ve come across where they actually have similar meanings as well…
