Default Palindromes Are Neat

Palindromes are interesting. At least to me. But my life isn't very exciting so you'll have to cut me some slack.

Plaindromes, for those of you who slept through your English classes, are words that are spelled the same way forwards or backwards. For instance:

noon
kayak
racecar
Thiht

That last one is a totally made up word, but it is still a palindrome. So suck it.

More complex is the palindromic phrase. For instance:

Madam, I'm Adam
Able was I ere I saw Elba
A man, a plan, a canal...Panama
Holy **** tihs yloh.

Again, I may have made that last one up of mostly fake words.

I decided to ask some people to create some on the spot palidromic phrases. Here are the results:

First, I asked a friendly looking elderly gentleman.

MOS95B: Can you made a palindromic phrase?

Elderly Gentleman: Radar, nun, radar.

MOS95B: That'* pretty good.

Elderly Gentleman: God lived as a devil dog.

MOS95B: Odd, but perfectly acceptable.

Elderly Gentleman: The robot aliens are coming. Warn the Vatican.

MOS95B: OK...that'* not a palidromic phrase at all.

Elderly Gentleman: Ah, Satan sees Natasha.

MOS95B: Hey, that'* pretty good. I like that one.

Elderly Gentleman: Save yourself.

At this point, he screamed at the sky and ran away.



Next, I thought I would ask a friendly looking hippy chick.


MOS95B: Can you made a palindromic phrase?

Hippy Chick: Gods send a madness: dog.

MOS95B: Hey. Nice one!

Hippy Chick: God, a wasp saw a dog!

MOS95B: OK. That works, too.

Hippy Chick: God, Steph pets dog!

MOS95B: You really seem to like dogs, don't you?

Hippy Chick: Goddam mad dog gnaws ****! Goddam mad dog!

MOS95B: OK...I'm just going to go ahead and walk away from you now.

At which point, I did exactly that.



I thought I would try asking a young male this time.

MOS95B: Can you made a palindromic phrase?

Mean Guy: Go screw yourself!

MOS95B: I don't think you understand. A palindromic phrase is when all the words in the sente...

Mean Guy: Are you some kind of ***?

MOS95B: No. I'm heterosexual. Although, I'm not sure what my sexuality has to do with a question about palidromic phra...

At this point, he began to rain blows down upon my head.



All palindromes taken from palindromelist.com. Go there to learn some more palindromes.
And that'* one to grow on!

But seriously, what about a sentence palindrome? A sentence where the words arranged in reverse order is still the same sentence, such as:

Run you jerk you, run!
