Those are great! I would say you saved the best for last for sure! Remind me to never play scrabble with you!

Never seen anything so clever! I love anagrams, but am sure could never have come up with those!

And my Mum-in-law was a really lovely lady, and a real Mum to me!

Very clever.

What's in a word? Well, plenty :-)

The mind that can think those up is AMAZING! I have some dyslexia so I've never been good at these sorts of things, but I sure admire those that are! That last one is Something Else! (lol)

Very Clever, but like all the other women, I wish the writer could have come up with a different anagram.

I know, you men love it. :-(
