So it began and English language lovers have been playing with palindromes ever since.Some are deceptively simple as in “A Toyota’s a Toyota”And some are mind-boggling in their complexity. E.g. “Dennis, Nell, Edna, Leon, Nedra, Anita, Rolf, Nora, Alice, Carol, Leo, Jane, Reed, Dena, Dale, Basil, Rae, Penny, Lana, Dave, Denny, Lena, Ida, Bernadette, Ben, Ray, Lila, Nina, Jo, Ira, Mara, Sara, Mario, Jan, Ina, Lily, Arne, Bette, Dan, Reba, Diane, Lynn, Ed, Eva, Dana, Lynne, Pearl, Isabel, Ada, Ned, Dee, Rena, Joel, Lora, Cecil, Aaron, Flora, Tina, Arden, Noel, and Ellen sinned.In 1975, the Swedish vocal group ABBA released the hit single, SOS a rare and possibly unique instance when the name of the singing group and the hit song they produced are both palindromes.Weird Al Yankovics 2003 song, Bob, a parody of Bob Dylan’s song Subterranean Homesick Blues is comprised of rhyming palindromes.

(No mean feat!) If you visit Youtube, you can see the video for this song in which Weird Al holds up cue cards of the palindromes as they are being vocalized.Ready?Well, if you don’t suffer from Aibohphobia, the fear of palindromes, (and itself a palindrome), read on.Have fun!
