Does anyone know what is special about the title to this post? Yes, that's right (and 10 points to you!) - it is a palindrome. Woohoo!
I have been thinking about palindromes lately, especially some of my most favorites ones. I think that we are all familiar with:
- A man, a plan, a canal: Panama
I just learned some new ones, though!
- Lonely tylenol
- I prefer Pi
- Was it Eliot's toilet I saw? (I love this one!!)
AND, there is apparently a word for an extreme fear of palindromes (I apologize if any of you suffer from this):
AIBOHPHOBIA (Phobia backwards and forwards, natch!)
Anybody know any fun ones? My brain totally celebrates when I think about these words and phrases - they are just so delightful!
