BBM Anagram Game
« on: November 21, 2007, 03:02:00 am »
Newest additions in blue:

Hi there, I just discovered ToOP/Bruce's thread called "Brokeback Mountain Anagrams."  In it he gives a link to a site that makes anagrams of the words and phrases you give it.  So I thought we could make it into a game.  You may need to help me refine the rules, but basically I picture us playing it much like the Cryptoquips game -

Choose a word or very short phrase (let's say four words maximum) from the short story or film, and run it through the anagram maker.  Then select any one of the answers it gives you, or create your own.  Post it here, telling us how many words are in the phrase we are trying to figure out. 

Here's an example (the number in parentheses indicates we are looking for a 3 word phrase):

Darn Isle Men (3)

Answer: Ennis Del Mar

Guidelines:
Allow at least one turn before going again.
Check back occasionally, and see if you might need to add a clue.
Please use a new post each time you add clues, or make corrections.
Please include all previous clues in newest post.


Here's the anagram maker:

A Cicadae Flown Pronto (4)

I'm tryin'.  I even tried cheating by running it through the anagram maker, but couldn't figure out which of the 971 choices it spit back at me were BBM-related!  This is hard.

I'll give a little hint:  it's a phrase uttered by Jack.  Second word is "and".
