platypus beatkeeper

I'm sure y'all know about hinky-pinkies. Here's a sort of quasi-variant: one person gives a clue, others try to find an answer that consists of two adjoining words (or phrases) that are anagrams of each other.

For example, the clue might be "platypus beatkeeper." For the answer, see the extended entry.

A platypus beatkeeper is a monotreme metronome.

Mostly I just thought it was cool that monotreme and metronome are anagrams.

Yes, I realize this entry is way outside the usual scope of this blog. I'm still experimenting with what the scope of this blog is.

Don't know whether this will come out as intended in LJ, btw; sorry if the answer appears right below the question.
