Ten of the Best Palindromes

Palindromes are interesting because they read the same forwards and backwards.  While phrases are common, complete sentences are rare.  The first palindrome that I saw was: Madam, I’m Adam, then I saw the longer: Madam, in Eden I’m Adam.  Since then Will and Guy have put together ten of the best palindromes:

  • Live not on evil
  • Rise to vote, sir!
  • Do geese see God?
  • Lisa Bonet ate no basil
  • Dennis and Edna sinned
  • Murder for a jar of red rum

Comment: It is interesting to see what things are done to the English language, it is humourously funny. And if I make a quip about it you may not understand what a quip is. That’s what the dictionary is for? Look it up, you may learn something. Hotdogfish
