As the great John Green informed us back in 2006 during his stint as a mental_floss blogger, "Britney Spears" is an anagram for "Presbyterians."
I've been trying to work that into conversation for years. Since today is Britney's 30th birthday, it seemed like the time was right.
To celebrate, let's have an anagram contest! Leave your favorite awesome, unbelievable, or apt anagram in the comments. Three winners will be chosen by the (also great) Andréa Fernandes on Monday; they'll win the mental_floss bookmark set of their choice.
1. Herman Cain = Inane Charm (Josh)
2. Snooze Alarms = Alas No More Zs (Haydn)
3. ELEVEN PLUS TWO = TWELVE PLUS ONE (Tim Harrod)
