Let's create some palindromes!

Palindromes are words, phrases, and passages that are spelled the same forwards and backwards, like the word "Racecar".

The most famous palindrome I've ever encountered was "A man a plan a canal, Panama."

A locally famous one is "Yreka Bakery." (Though, I'm not in Yreka. It just seems to be one that everyone here knows.)

If you can't think one up on your own, feel free to share one you've encountered before. :)

Bonus points if you create palindromes for languages you're learning.

Tripple points for palindromes that mix languages. ;)

I like this one: Aibohphobia. Funnily enough, it means "the fear of palindromes".

Whoever coined that one was cruel.

(I had no idea fear of palindromes was a thing O.O)
