Apparently the QI Elves Tweeted today (I don't Tweet myself) that if you swap ‘a’ for ‘z’, ‘b’ for ‘y’, 'c' for 'x' etc. in the word ‘WIZARD’ you get the word ‘DRAZIW’.

Still looking for the X and the Y in WIZARD... Hang on, I'm sure they were in there a minute ago... ;)

I like this. It is nicely quirky. Offhand, I can only think of one other word that does it, and that is "by". I can feel a night's programming coming on...
