are perfect anagrams!!!! I believe this sheds some light on the profound influence Shatner has had on the whole genre of dramatic acting and stage technique, specially in the area of dialogue.
As for hamsters, well, they are very clever little creatures...and they amazing thing is that all hamsters presently in "captivity" (if I may use that word) are descended from only 3 individuals...who came out of the same litter!!! Incredible, but true. If you don't believe me, look it up.
