Montreal Metro - Anagrammed

Posted by John / February 28, 2006

anagram.gifCourtesy of the nerds at BoingBoing, who for some reason have taken it upon themselves to become the international hub of public transit maps with the stop names anagrammed, here are two takes on the Montreal system by local bloggers:

This one from In Over Your Head, who apparently have a hip-hop podcast (I can't keep up with cultural texts anymore - writing this post has officially put me so far behind on reading magazines that I won't get to the 2006 issues I've received until 2008), is pretty good. But this livejournal one is better, with numerous changes that seem not just funny but weirdly appropriate.

Some might question the point of anagrams in general, and anagrammed subway maps specifically. Well, obviously, it's rearranged letters. That spell occasionally amusing things. It's very useful, clearly, for, um, hmmm. The people who have taken the time to make these should be commended for their dedication.

"OK, Lisa, here's one for you: Jeremy Irons."
"Um ... Jeremy's Iron."
"I have a ball. Perhaps you'd like to bounce it."

I am so glad to call More Snot metro stn my stn. And it's so accurate in the wintertime! Overpass or train track route, both are cold and blustery - perfect snot-making conditions.

The best anagram for Jeremy Irons is obviously "I's Ron Jeremy."

You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I in finding this
topic to be actually one thing which I believe I would never understand.

It seems too complex and extremely extensive for me. I'm taking a look ahead in your subsequent publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!

Some genuinely interesting information, well written and
broadly speaking user pleasant.
