In order to add my bit to preventing as many of us as possible from wasting any time coding, I accidentally thought of a new word game last night - (possibly related to my getting on wrong train and watching my connection pull out of the station.)
 
It's an adaption of anagrams, but more restrictive. Find a word that can have it's letters rearranged into another word. One-word to One-word only. Ideally, the two can be made to actually mean something when juxtaposed (with such awful punning going on in a supposedly KSS forum, that should be easy)
 
Examples:

over rove - wander too far
mesh hems - undergarment trim
rose sore - result of mishandling aforementioned flower
link kiln - new name for SourceForge
kale leak - leafy losses at vegetable market
sate seat - place to park your carcass when overeating
dare read, dear - challenge a loved one to do some self improvement
tame mate - dull lover
bare bear

 
One may play this by dumping an outburst at any time. You may wish to disavow the consequences.

Very Special case:
polish polish - a shining euro, of sorts
