image for Britney Spears Discovered To Be Strange Anagram
Forefather of the I'm Britney Spears church

Britney Spears, the faded princess of pop, is back in the limelight tonight, after it was discovered the singer's name is, in fact, a strange anagram of Presbyterians.

If you think that's strange though, consider: Presbyterianism - an anagram of I'm Britney Spears.

Spears, who releases her new album this week, is not thought to be religious, but experts say what has thus far passed for her 'real name' (Britney Spears) may actually be a name made up from the letters of 'Presbyterians' by her insane parents.

Yes, Presbyterians are strange, but Presbyterianism is much stranger.

The territory within about a 50-mile (80 km) radius of Charlotte, North Carolina is historically the greatest concentration of Presbyterianism in the Southern U.S., while an almost-identical geographic area around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania contains probably the largest number of Presbyterians in the entire nation.

Spears was born in McComb, Mississippi, which is a long way from both, but an even more extraordinary coincidence, is that Mississippi is an anagram of Britney's 'on tour' nickname: Missi Pis Pis.

Jean Cauvin (10 July 1509 - 27 May 1564) has a lot to answer for.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
