    I, Nan, a Loyola nun, bought a Toyota race car at noon.
    yeah yeah.
    how many of you realize that a palindrome is not just a word, sentence or paragraph or poem the same front to back; but any number as well. so if you wanna get technical I know the longest palindrome ever, as long as I get to go last

    Demetri Martin takes the cake with the entire 224 word poem being one giant palindrome.

    Dammit I’m mad.
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
    To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
    Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
    Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
    I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
    Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
    In my halo of a mired rum tin.
    I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
    Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
    No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
    Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
    Be still if I fill its ebb.
    Ew, a spider… eh?
    We sleep. Oh no!
    Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
    Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
    Both, one… my names are in it.
    Murder? I’m a fool.
    A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash,
    A Goddam level I lived at.
    On mail let it in. I’m it.
    Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
    A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
    Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
    “Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
    Evil is a deed as I live.
    Dammit I’m mad.

      Set a note- Don’t salt a burger up.
      Set a pupa in a manic ass.
      Mare slups a pupa pure, wets a pup,
      Deific, lactates in alpine moss.

      Upon a time, we fed on Agnus Dei
      Fed nude garnets, aortae, mad-eyed.
      Ah, burger – art, sacred lore – hops astray.
      Art’s asp? O, her older-cast, rare grub had

      Eyed a meat-roast enraged; undefied,
      Sung an ode few emit: an opus.
      So men, I plan, I set at calcified
      Pupa stewer, up a pupa’s pulse.

      Ram’s sac in a mania pupates.
      Pure grub at last – No! – detonates

        The title got lost from my sonnet:
        A palindromic sonnet from 2112 AD, in which the poet, recalling a lost, golden age of food production, attempts to cultivate a burger

    The “never odd or even” pic comes from Weird Al Yanovich’s video for his song “Bob”. The song spoofs Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and the video spoofs Dylan’s video. The song and video are made up of palindromes!

    there is an entire book that is a palindrome. it’s made of over 50,000 words. its called “Satire: Veritas” by David Stephens. pretty sure that is the longest.

    My favorites:

    “I, man, am regal, a german am I!” (8 words 21 letters)

    I love the imagery in “oozy rat in a sanitary zoo”

    of course there’s the short and sweet warning “Egad! No Bondage!”

    and the truism, “war, sir, is raw”

      I’m glad I wasn’t drinking milk when I read, “Egad! No Bondage!” Otherwise it would have been coming out my nose.

    This is really interesting stuff. I had never really given this kind of cleverness much thought.

    You call the name “Emma” a palindrome in your introductory paragraph.

    Um…no. Maybe you meant to type Anna?

    Do you think Napoleon really said that in the English language

      No, that is why I said reportedly. Just a famous palindrome about Napoleon’s exile.
