Futurama-related anagram in John 1:1 ...

"In the beginning was the Word"
is an anagram of
"Bender: whitewash tin noggin"

Still, I can't see Bender painting his head white. Unless someone offered him money. And booze. And hookers.

I don't really understand this one. But it must be true because it is in the Bible...

Genesis 1:4 ...
God divided the light from the darkness.
is an anagram of ...
Light-hearted Kif moved odd nightdress.

Why did Kif move the nightdress?
What was odd about it?
... so many questions.

There are different translations of the Bible, and they usually have slightly different wordings. What you can make with the letters of a particular verse for one version will not usually be the same as another.

You should include the version of the Bible that you are using, and the year of publication, if you want people to be able to duplicate your results.

Also, you don't have to sign your posts. Your username appears at the top right of your post, above your avatar. PEEL does allow you the option of having a signature automatically added to your posts, but it's usually something a little more creative than simply stamping your username there.

As for this...
it must be true because it is in the Bible

We've had quite a few arguments here over the years as to what's true in the Bible and what isn't. The current religion thread would be the best place to take statements about that. Reading through past religion threads is recommended, too. It'll let you know what sort of response you're likely to get to a particular viewpoint. There isn't currently a list of those on the PEEL wiki, but somebody might get bored enough to do that at some point.

I really hope you're just joking...

It's not too hard, since there is only one Futrama-related word in them.

Luke 4:1...

"And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness"

May be re-arranged to make a suitable final comment on this thread...

"I, Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, with Fry and Leela, absent-mindedly judged the dull otiose nothingness."

1 Kings 9:16...

"For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife."

Pharaoh king of Egypt represents Zapp Brannigan and the Canaanites represent the aliens from Omicron Persei 8. Solomon's wife is clearly meant to be Leela. Evidently we are not to regard Zapp as a hypnotist, because the whole verse is an anagram of...

"Gag talk of white hypnotist. Thank nutty, woodenheaded, Zapp Brannigan, 25-Star General in a tutu, defending Earth during the first invasion of the Deathwatch aliens of Omicron Persei 8."

Obviously, the tutu reference is to Zapp's very revealing uniform.

How exactly do the numerals work in that anagram?

They don't. The "anagram" doesn't work.

Silly tnuk. If an anagram doesn't work, then by definition it's not an anagram.

Of course, you could be suggesting that it's not an anagram at all and that we are all gullible fools for giving any credence to the idea, but I know you're not that kind of person. smile

Totally. I'm not that kind of person at all, and none of you are gullible fools who have been paying far too much attention to the ramblings of a lunatic.

Also, I'm never sarcastic, caustic, arrogant, rude, wrong, or a toaster.

Well, the chapter is 9 and the verse is 16 - and 9+16=25.
I am still working on the 8.

Listen everybody. 8=9-1. 9 is the verse number and the "1" is from "1 Kings".

Eva, can I stack Rod's sad-ass, dork cats in a cave?

Egad! No bondage!

A man a plan a canal, Panama!

Punctuation and capitalization aside, these are all anagrams! Wait no, the other thing. Rhymes with "palindome".

Ok. Another try at 1 Kings 9:16...

"For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife."

Awkward Kif introducing Zapp Brannigan: "Tan, hotshot, twenty-five star general in tutu. Defended Planet Earth. Shanghaied filthy heathen iguanodons of Omicron Persei Eight. Toast."

Yesterday, I prayed long and hard about the Bible/Futurama project, asking God for direction. I was sitting quietly in my den eating a Manwich when, for no reason that I know, my Bible fell off my desk and landed open, face down, on the floor. A creature (a spider, I think) had been crushed by the falling book. But its life had been sacrificed for a purpose. Its squashed body was EXACTLY on the first letter of Matthew 4:4. I had asked God a question, and He had answered...

Matthew 4:4 "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."

4:4 ... square:square ... Every word that proceedeth ...

I picked up my pencil and pad and, as in a trance, wrote...
~~~~
"Tooth, Every nth verse of the Bible is a deliberate anagram about Futurama."
"Thy co-dependent hidden dotty words. No bullshit! Wow!"
~~~~
God's personal reply me, and my own, profane, unvoiced response. Both packed together in that one celebrated verse. I fell to my knees and cried.

Good news, everyone! The Pope continues to make Tweets about Futurama. His latest Tweet:

"Dear young friends, Christ has confidence in you and he entrusts his own mission to you: Go and make disciples!"

is an anagram of

"Fry is in dicey hymns, and he's in Futurama. Conscientious dendrochronologists use dead pines to know his age."

Jeez people, Clive's clearly a joke account. And a pretty damn amusing one, at that.

... Well, I'm digging how totally convoluted this is, anyway. roll eyes

Also I'm not bored enough to check if these are actual anagrams or not, but I'm sure there are websites/programs out there that can generate anagrams. Wouldn't be too hard to hust feed a bible quote in there, do a search for random words specific to Futurama and note down the best ones.

Good news, everyone! Today's tweet from the Pope-a-tron...

"Let us thank Blessed John Paul II for WYD and for the many vocations born during these 28 gatherings."

is an anagram of...

"28 odd boys, joyriding through nothingness, bonk Futurama's fave transcendentalist, Leela. Whip her."
