Darla - gotta admit, I didn't know the anagram to the presidents. But once I saw your answers, some of them was like slap on the forehead and "duh" LOL

This was fun...but am never good with this kind of quizzes ;)

Mine is up! And I know you're gonna hate me LOL
 
Sure, make me think first thing in the morning. ;) I only managed to figure out a couple of them, mostly because I'm unfamiliar with most of the US presidents, except for the famous ones and the ones who have been president during my lifetime! Since I'm not American, it's not one of the things I ever learned in school or had any interest in learning!

Fun idea to do anagrams though. :) Very cool. Happy T13. :)
 
Interesting.
Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
My TT is posted.
Have a wonderful day!
Happy TT'ing!

omg my head is still spinning! Happy TT, mine's up! it's Presidents, too, but they're in ::ahem:: more traditional spelling! :)
 
Hee! What a neat idea for a Thursday Thirteen! Though my caffeine hasn't yet taken effect, I managed to figure some of 'em out. :)

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!
 
what a neat list! my brain doesn't work this early, though. ha.
 
Wow!Great list. I had fun!

Happy T13.
 
It'd take me too long to figure these out!
 
The crossword I worked on this morning had an anagram theme as well.

Didn't get enough sleep last night to offer up a good effort on these. But great TT!

Fun! I love wordgames!
 
Very cool list. :) Those are quite funny! "Immoral elf drill" - *grin* Thanks for visiting. :)
 
great list..I need to remember to send hubby (www.valtool.blogspot.com) over here..he would love it
 
I am SOOO impressed! It would probably take me a day to figure out the answers, let alone the clues! You're talented.
 
Now that's a unique list idea.
I haven't got a clue about any of them.
I'm off to see the answers.
Thanks for stopping in
 
Wow, I didn't know any of them. I feel so stupid. LOL! Happy Thursday, Darla! Mine's up too. :)
 
Wow, you're waaaay too clever and it's waaay too late for me to even try. I'll have to come back when I'm not about to fall asleep.

Very neat idea. Happy (belated) Thursday. :)
