For those who enjoy anagrams, check out
The Holy Tango of Literature by Francis Heaney.
He creates parodies of works by famous authors by anagramming their name to create a title:
Skinny Domicile by Emily Dickinson
I will be alarming islamic owls by william carlos Williams

An excerpt:
Toilets, by TS Eliot

These were featured on the now defunct "Modern Humorist" website. The book is well worth the $10.
