:banana:Wow. I found these and thought maybe some of you had this ah...talent.

Was it a car or a cat I saw?

"Deliver no evil, avid diva! Live on reviled!" (not my own)

ROTAVATOR (a farming machine)

ZEROREZ (a carpet cleaning company)

I guess I don't have the gift. :)

Check out the lyrics to Weird Al Yankovic's Bob (http://www.com-www.com/weirdal/bob.html). Every line is a palindrome (including the title). Oh, and if you get the chance, have a listen as well.

Here are some of my favorites, none of which are mine:

"Dammit, I'm Mad."

"Go hang a salami; I'm a lasagna hog."

"Live not on evil."

"Never odd or even."

"Stack cats."

"Yo, banana boy!"

Dang, and me not at my own computer, where I have a small collection.

I remember a good one, though: No, sir--away! A papaya war is on!

Do you think Marconi ever said this? "I, madam, I made radio! So I dared. Am I mad? Am I?" (I doubt it.)

"Reviled did I live," said I, "as evil I did deliver." (Ooh, that's a good one, eh?) Are we not drawn onward, we few? Drawn onward to new era?

Longest I've ever seen: 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. (Wow, huh?)

Maryn, whose own palindromes are in the six-letter range

My favorite -

Able was I ere I saw Elba. (supposedly said by Napoléon)

This one comes from the song "I Palidrome I" by They Might Be Giants:

Son I am able," she said "though you scare me."
"Watch," said I
"Beloved," I said "watch me scare you though." said she,
"Able am I, Son."
