MicroHoo: Fun With Anagrams!

Who doesn’t like a good anagram?

Grumpy people, that’s who!

But for the rest of you out there, BoomTown ran the names of the pair of possible outcomes in the Yahoo takeover battle through Wordsmith’s Internet Anagram Server to see what would come up. We only printed the ones that had some semblance of sense.

And, apparently, MicroHoo has a stronger anagrammatic case.

Here are the results:

MICROSOFT+YAHOO

cowchair

Chamois Roof Toy
Oafish Coy Motor
Mafioso Torch Yo
Chair Of Moo Toys (pictured here, made of Yahoo sacred cows)
Fairy Smooch Too
Yahoos Comfort I
Yahoos Micro Oft
Yahoo Comforts I
Yahoo Comfort Is
Macho If Too Rosy (which, let’s face it, is the best analysis of the situation I have read so far).

YAHOO+AOL+GOOGLE

Aloha Gooey Logo (and a gooey logo it would be!)
