Tova had a good one recently and I realized we didn't have a thread for them.

A thread dearth, to make a phrase with a word and its anagram.

"Scorched earth" is an anagram for "Oh, sacred retch".

A variation I like is to put something together with its anagram to form a phrase.

Loathe a hotel.
Holstein in hotel.
Tide diet.
Outre route.

"Holstein in hotel" is missing an 's'. Probably should have been 'in hostel'. Maybe the German habit of pronouncing it as 'Hol-shtein' mislead you here?

(German is said to be 'pronounced as it is written' - I have my doubts on that. The German and English 's' are identical. Ditto for the 'st' - in theory: Most Germans would pronounce the 's' in 'stein' (~stone) as a 'sch' (sounds roughly like the 'sh' in names like 'Shulz'), instead of as 'ess-tee' as in 'hostel' or 'stand'. There are regional variations - it's more common in the German North to pronounce every 'st' as 'ess-tee'. Theirs is a minority position, but at the same time, Holstein is located in that very same north ...  :angel: )
