Shakespeare Anagram: Julius Caesar

November 22nd, 2014

From Henry V:

And why should Caesar be a tyrant then?
Poor man! I know he would not be a wolf,
But that he sees the Romans are but sheep:
He were no lion, were not Romans hinds.

Shift around the letters, and it becomes:

Hot-headed Republicans, who re-won the Senate, loathe any intolerable snub from the enemy.

An unrepentant Obama shows the order, risks a shutdown.

Oh, wow.

I’m unfolding events, as a tale recollects;
The land under a tombstone, to pay last respects;
Place a point where the x with the y intersects;
And a plan hatched in secret that no one expects.

Who am I?

Shakespeare Anagram: Henry V

November 15th, 2014

From Henry V:

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:

Shift around the letters, and it becomes:

So, the GOP usurpers toss a mutiny, regain thin Senate lead.

Okay, fine. Let’s do this thing.

I’m the office supply store where everyone shops;
I’m in multi-page papers, connecting their tops;
I’m a culture’s consumables, based on their crops;
And a family of singers, most notably “Pops.”

Who am I?

November 6th, 2014

I’m a spot to get sun, or for grilling out back;
I record a cassette tape, or play an eight-track;
I’m adorning the halls; all the cards in one pack;
And the thing you should hit when you’re under attack!

Who am I?

I’m keyed into machines where transactions are made;
Struck by balls in the lanes; also, in the arcade;
To post pictures online where they’re often displayed;
I keep wrestlers down; and restrain the grenade.

Who am I?

I’m a list of the contents you’ll find in a book;
To find element names, I’m the place you would look;
I’m postponing that vote that the House never took;
And the spot used for serving a meal that you cook.

Who am I?

I’m the premium gas for which much will be spent;
I maintain your apartment as part of your rent;
I’m a Giant food market; the greatest extent;
And an adjective used for describing Clark Kent.

Who am I?

I’m a place where you might find a money engraver;
A sweet pungent herb that is prized for its flavor;
Condition of goods a collector would favor;
And candy like Certs, or a white-hued Life Saver.

Who am I?

I’m the small jurisdiction for refs or an ump;
I am similar work where professionals clump;
I’m a place to grow corn; I played mother to Gump;
And a non-track event like a throw, vault, or jump.

Who am I?
