Leagas Shafron Davis has a new game. After getting bored with calling
public phone boxes (Campaign, 14 June), staff now spend their time
dreaming up fun anagrams of prominent names in the industry.
As they are of a childish bent, most of them are rude, of course.
Leagas Shafron translates into ‘an avid shag for sale’ or ‘Ron has a
life VD saga’, while Ron Leagas, the agency’s chairman and chief
executive, becomes ‘a long arse’.
Yusuf Karimjee, a planner of Sri Lankan parentage, becomes ‘See Mi fuk a
jury’, and Maggie Welsh, the agency’s rather dishy receptionist, neatly
rearranges into ‘I’m a well shag’.
Other arguably apposite anagrams are for Campaign’s editor, Stefano
Hatfield, who becomes ‘Is he a fat fondle?’, Chris Ingram, moneybags
chairman of CIA Medianetwork, who becomes ‘Rich margins’, and Belinda
Archer, Campaign Diary editor, who translates into ‘gorgeous pouting sex
kitten’ (Eh? - Ed.)
Any other suggestions? A top prize could be yours.
