I found this sentence in Orinoco's post in Samp's "homomentum" thread

quote:
Prop 8 is so baldly anti-constitutional, so badly defended...
strangely satisfying with near-permutations "baldly" and "badly" so close together.

So I propose an amusement (no permutation dictionary cheating please!): meaningful single sentences using as many single-word permutations of a group of letters as possible.

I'll start simple:

Levi was surprised to live through his live televised battle under an evil veil of vile darkness.
[counting heteronyms for 'live' as two words]

Come on you lazy prats, find the parts to strap down the tarps before the weather traps us eating our sprat in the rain.

Tina's and Nita's belief was strong that their favorite actor, Sean Astin, would be a saint to travel to Tanis to remove a stain from some satin covered tains, no matter how many "he ain'ts" they heard from friends who in this case were antis.

Ere we err, does a dose of permutation need all letters to already be in the word like in "veil and evil"?

If I understand your question correctly, Vadon, yes, all letters should be present in each permutation.

ETA: Plurals and possessives are fair.

Anne Kate's whole stake would skate to collect teaks, and John Keats makes steak that takes the cake!
