Lavishly Wettest

Via Boing Boing, A map of DC’s Metro system (PDF) with all of the station names re-arranged into creative anagrams. Thus, my West Hyattsville station becomes “lavishly wettest,” and I work near the “Buckaroo Land” station. My favorite anagram: Pentagon City, which became “Giant Potency.”

For my Atlanta friends, There’s another anagram map for Atlanta’s Marta system.

Both of these anagram maps (along with several others) appeared soon after the London Underground demanded that one remixed map be pulled down (also via Boing Boing).

    I gather Washington is (potentially at least) quite a wet place, is that right? Is it built on drained swampland or something along those lines?

    I’ve heard the story that it was built on swampland, but I’ve also heard that it’s a bit of a legend. It certainly seems plausible given how humid it is around here, especially in the summer.
