Google's Anagram Easter Egg

Search for [anagram] using Google and you'll notice with a weird suggestion: "Did you mean: nag a ram". Obviously, "nag a ram" is an anagram of the word "anagram".

"An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or the phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once," according to Wikipedia.

Google can't find the anagrams of a word, but you can use WolframAlpha to find them.
This is not the first Google Easter egg that helps you understand a query: [ASCII art] and [recursion] are two other examples.
