Fun With Anagrams (or ... Amusing Wrath Fan)

Thanks to Mark Rosen, host of WPDH-FM's annual Christmas Eve show, for this nugget of rock 'n' roll trivia (which I'm probably the last to know):

"Mr. Mojo Risin'," a line repeated several times in the song "L.A. Woman" by The Doors, is an anagram for the name of the band's late lead singer, Jim Morrison.

Sadly, the only anagram I could come up with for my own name, Jeremy Schiffres, was Mr. Jersey Fish Fecs. (Well, there's also Mr. Jer Fishy Feces, but let's not go there.)

Actually, there are dozens -- sometimes hundreds -- of anagrams for most word combinations, and there are numerous sites on the Web that let you plug in words find out what the letters will spell in different orders. Here are two of those sites. Enjoy.
