palindrome

I find word games fascinating! that's why I love palindromes. What are they? The definition is simple and plain: word or phrase (or number) which reads the same backward or forward.

One I like in English is : A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.

Others I have found in the net:
A dog! A panic in a pagoda!

Madam in Eden, I'm Adam.

Lived on Decaf, Faced no Devil.

Marge lets Norah see Sharon's telegram

Flee to me, remote elf.

Naomi, did I moan?

A global rotator lab, Olga.

Bird imitators rot a timid rib.

Name now one man.

Sex at noon taxes.

Included the last one just for the stats: let that google search list this blog! any contributions??

  7. I'd contribute, but then my brain would hurt, and I'm trying to avoid all thinking. :) Signed the guest map, though.
