Palindrome is a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward, e.g., madam or nurses run.
"Mom is a palindrome, and so is Dad," I said. "Your cousin Hannah has a palindrome name. How cool is that?" We identified more words as we drove along: pop, non, gag, poop, and racecar. I was relieved nobody mentioned tit or boob.
"Hey, why isn't the word palindrome a palindrome?" Chris asked. Laughter erupted from behind the driver's seat.
"Is it too late to change the word palindrome to palinlap or palindnilap?" I asked. "I know you won't believe me, but I've sung these words: sit on a potato pan, otis. That's a palindrome, too." I was feeling pretty smug. How could anyone top that?
Henry spoke up. "Rats live on no evil star."
"Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog!” yelled Noah from the back seat.
"How did you come up with those so quickly? I asked, shocked.
"It's something Weird Al sings about in a song," Henry explained.
"Really? Which song is that?"
Noah said, "It's a song called Bob!"
Of course. If I would have been quicker on my feet, I would have said, "Ha! On, on, o Noah!"
