Palin: Hello, good evening and welcome to another edition of Blood, Devastation, Death, War, and Horror, and later on we'll be meeting a man who does gardening. But first on the show we've got a man who speaks entirely in anagrams.

Idle: Hamrag - Hamrag Yatlerot

Palin: Well, Graham, nice to have you on the show. Now, where do you come from?

Idle: Bumcreland.

Palin: And I believe you're working on an anagram version of Shakespeare?

Idle: Sey, sey - taht si crreoct, er - ta the mnemot I'm wroking on "The Mating of the Wersh".

Palin: I'm sorry?

Idle: 'A shroe! A shroe! My dingkom for a shroe!'

Palin: Ah, Ring Kichard, yes... but surely that's not an anagram, that's a spoonerism.

Idle: If you're going to split hairs, I'm going to piss off.
