Scrabble Anagram

scrabble

The March 11, 1975 issue of the London Times has this little curiosity.

Phoebe Winch was able to arrange the 100 standard Scrabble tiles into a meaningful anagram:

AAAAAAAAA BB CC DDDD EEEEEEEEEEEE FF GGG HH IIIIIIIII J K LLLL MM NNNNNN OOOOOOOO PP Q RRRRRR SSSS TTTTTT UUUU VV WW X YY Z [_] [_]

=

“I am dieting. I eat quince jelly. Lots of ground maize gives variety. I cook rhubarb and soda, weep anew, or put on extra flesh.”

Winch felt that the anagram was not good enough. She said, “I expect some of you can do better.”
