    A few to amuse

    Each phrase is an anagram whose solution amusingly (IMHO) relates to the phrase itself. The solution is either one word or a short phrase.

    1# Dirty Room
    2#Evils' Agent
    3#A Rope Ends It
    4# Here Come Dots
    5#Cash Lost In 'Em
    6#Woman Hitler
    7#Alas! No More Zs
    8#Genuine Class
    9# Is No Meal
    10#Large Picture Halls, I Bet
    11#I'm a Dot In Place
    12#That Queer Shake
    13#Twelve Plus One
    14# Accord Not In It

    Alan,

    Most of us only get one of those, which would make for a slightly more accurate anagram.
