we've got a man who speaks entirely in anagrams.

Idle: I stom certainly od. Revy chum so.
Palin: And what's your name?
Idle: Hamrag - Hamrag Yatlerot.
Palin: Well, Graham, nice to have you on the show. Now, where
do you come from?
Idle: Stah't it sepricely.
Palin: And I believe you're working on an anagram version of
Idle: Sey, sey - taht si crreoct, er - ta the mnemot I'm wroking

Idle: "Ring Kichard the Thrid".
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. (Exit)
