On last night's House, we learned that "Sorry, Huge Ego" is an anagram for Gregory House. What other apropos anagrams can we find for TV shows, characters and actors (or other real people on TV)? The game would work like this: one person posts an anagram and provides the category, and other people work to unscramble it. Honor system - you can use anagram generators to compose your entry but not to decipher other people's entries.

A suggestion for the stumpers: if a day or two goes by with no solution to your anagram, maybe you could post a second related one - either the show name or another character from that show or something like that.

Anyone game?

In case the answer is yes, I'll start:

ACTOR:
Necessary Rat

A non-slack Jedi=Daniel Jackson! Hee.

SHOW:
Rot, Demure Shrew

P.S. The cool thing about anagrams, is it's usually pretty clear when you've got it right. So I suggest that anyone can drop in with an offering, even if they haven't solved one yet. Might keep the thread more active, and more anagrams for all! But I'm happy to withdraw that offering if people prefer turn-taking to amp up the challenge...

Nice work!

Balsa Guitar = Gaius Baltar (maybe he plays one in his spare time)

OK, I'll do one more and then I'm off for the night. Thanks for playing, Dren, even if it winds up being just you and me swapping anagrams for the rest of eternity ;)
