Anagrams are Fun

Anagrams can be fun.
For example:

1 Can you make one word out of the letters in ' new door? '

Yes.... The letters in newdoor = the letters in oneword

Five different shop name anagrams!

2 When is enough not enough?
When it is one hug......
Everybody knows that one hug is not enough!

3 A triple Anagram

Parental means "pertaining to the influence of a parent."
Paternal means "pertaining to the influence of a father."
Prenatal certainly involves the influence of a mother!

4 A Shakespearian Anagram

"To be or not to be, that is the question,
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune...."

The above is an exact anagram of the following:

" In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies,
Our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts
About how life turns rotten."
