Breakup/Tower/Blade-goes-wham!/These don't help with an anagram.
Here is one anagram that has helped me keep the latter Catherines straight--"OW! (HER HEAD IN CART)".
I'm smart and I want respect.

Since we're having fun, how about a more serious attempt at useful poetry, based on the least amount of research possible. :)

Catherine of Aragon: loved her like no other,
Anne Boleyn failed to produce a brother.

Jane Semour brought the boy but no more,
Anne of Cleves was shown the door.

Catherine Howard kept her head but a year,
Catherine Parr saw the duty so drear.


Maybe in haiku?

Kate of A, Anne B
Jane Seymour, then Anne of C
Kate Howard, Kate Parr


No complaining. It's worth what you paid for it. ;)

I can't wait for Anagrammed Husbands of Elizabeth Taylor and Anagrammed Wives of Brigham Young. Good luck keeping those straight.

Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.
Ooh sorry. We were looking for "caught in a mudslide, eaten by a lion, got run over by a crappy purple Scion".
Judging by the following comments, looks like the Train quickly derailed after this ...

I've got just one to offer....

Higgledy Piggledy
Catherine of Aragon
Henry the Eighth found con-
Venient to wed

Irreconcilable
differences parted them
Cost her her crown but, thank
God, not her head.
I'm smart and I want respect.

I hadn't noticed until this haiku that the Catherines and the Annes individually come in alphabetical order. With this haiku plus the divorced-beheaded-died thing, I might actually be able to keep these straight from now on.

Sorry, I had just seen the Friday show's right-most category and was inspired.

Wrong Atlanta school for me. I went with GA Tech.
at least it was in the city of atlanta...the 2 dudes on the show that missed that clue went with a school like 50 miles away from atlanta
On the other hand, I believe that school at least has a medical school, unlike GT.

the only problem is the tracks are out of order chronologically, having to fit them on a vinyl album.
