THIS SIGN WAS TAKEN OFF THE WALL FOR AN OFFICE MOVE. YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT.

I found these while continuing the long, tedious process of cleaning out my hard drives. This was when Neopets was moving out of the Viacom offices after the company was purchased.

I want to make it clear that I had no involvement in this tomfoolery. I just stood by to document the scene… and laugh hysterically… and cheer them on… and possibly yell out word suggestions… but no direct involvement whatsoever.

Doctor Who's secret history of codenames revealed

The makers of Doctor Who have long used codenames and anagrams when they want to keep something from us. Most recently, Jenna-Louise Coleman revealed that she had to pretend she was auditioning for something called “Men on Waves”.

She told Radio Times: “When she was auditioning, Karen Gillan had been given a codename - Panic Moon, which is an anagram of Companion - so I worked out that Men on Waves is an anagram of Woman Seven, because this is the seventh series. Weirdly, seven is my lucky number and this is my seventh job.”

Back in 2005, the very biggest secret of them all was the show itself: everybody wanted to know what the revived Doctor Who would look like and the production team went so far as to relabel the very few videos that had to leave the office.

Instead of “Doctor Who”, they were labelled with an anagram: “Torchwood”.

In 1988’s Remembrance of the Daleks, the production team knew full well that listing a character as being played by Terry Molloy would tip off fans that Davros, creator of the Daleks, was back. So in the cast list they provided to Radio Times for that week, they billed the actor as Roy Tromelly.

PLL Names and Places- Anagram & References - Master Post

I did this while back, but it needed to be updated since we have so many new characters. If there is a person or place you want me to add, just send me a message, and I’ll add it. There are literally hundreds of anagrams in most names, so don’t take it too seriously. I chose the funny/relevant ones. The references to real life people is amazing though - be sure to check those out! Without further ado….

“Camp Koatohee”: Koatohee was Corn Tassel, he signed a treaty. Can’t find any relevance.

“Carissimi Group”: Carissimi is the pluralized version of Carissimo, Italian for beloved (credit to hannasangrydance. )

“Cardillo Art Fellowship”: Cardillo is also Italian, meaning Goldfinch.  Goldfinch is a prize-winning novel, summary here . 

**Cardillo is also the surname of Robert Cardillo,  Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Intelligence Integration. Link here

“Cracked Up”: Maybe a reference to this 1946 film, here 

“Declodyne”: anagram: CEDED ONLY

**Another thought is the French connection. Declodyne could be spelled declodine, de clodine. Clodine is the french name Claudine. De means Of in French. Declodyne = Of Clodine. A famous series of French novels titled “Claudine” can be found here. A little far out, but the novel summary is intriguing, and remniscent of Alison.

“Key Lime Pie”: anagram: I PEEK EMILY, I KEEP EMILY

“Lost Woods Resort” not the name, but the place is an homage to Hitchcock link here

Rauschenberg’s Early Bloomer [Anagram] (A Pun) (1998) was recently installed in the White House Old Family Dining Room, which is now part of the public tour! Works by Anni Albers, Josef Albers, and Alma Thomas were also added to the dining room by First Lady Michelle Obama, who believes “modern art and design is such an important part of the American tradition.”

When I was little, I didn’t understand that you could change a few sounds in a name or a phrase and have it mean something entirely different. When I told teachers my name was Benna and they said, ’Donna who?’ I would say, ‘Donna Gilbert.’ I thought close was good enough, that sloppiness was generally built into the language. I thought Bing Crosby and Bill Cosby were the same person. That Buddy Holly and Billie Holiday were the same person. That Leon Trotsky and Leo Tolstoy were the same person. It was a shock for me quite late in life to discover that Jean Cocteau and Jacques Cousteau were not even related. Meaning, if it existed at all, was unstable and could not survive the slightest reshuffling of letters. One gust of wind and Santa became Satan. A slip of the pen and pears turned into pearls. A little interior decorating and the world became her twold, an ungrammatical and unkind assessment of an aging aunt in a singles bar. Add a d to poor, you got droop. It was that way in biology, too. Add a chromosome, get a criminal. Subtract one, get an idiot or a chipmunk. That was the way with things. When you wanted someone to say 'I love you,’ approximate assemblages–igloo, eyelid glue, isle of ewe–however lovely, didn’t quite make it.

Where does love go? When something you have taped on the wall falls off, what has happened to the stickum? It has relaxed. It has accumulated an assortment of hairs and fuzzies. It has said Fuck it and given up. It doesn’t go anywhere special, it’s just gone. Energy is created, and then it is destroyed. So much for the laws of physics. So much for chemistry. So much for not so much.
