ΝΙΨΟΝ ΑΝΟΜΗΜΑΤΑ ΜΗ ΜΟΝΑΝ ΟΨΙΝ
Wash away your sins, not just your face.
It all started simply.
A man, a plan, a canal – Panama!
But then people got bright ideas. A cat fell into the canal. Then a yak.
A man, a plan, a cat, a canal – Panama!
A man, a plan, a cat, a ham, a yak, a yam, a hat, a canal – Panama!
And from there things quickly got out of hand [1,2].
A man, a plan, a canoe, pasta, heros, rajahs, a coloratura, maps, snipe, percale, macaroni, a gag, a banana bag, a tan, a tag, a banana bag again (or a camel), a crepe, pins, Spam, a rut, a Rolo, cash, a jar, sore hats, a peon, a canal – Panama!

I like palindromes. That big one (with the two bags of bananas) was pretty clever.

Some interesting palindromes for sure! These are great. I would never have even thought to look for them. Good job at finding them. Palindromes now where could I find me some of those. My favorite word activity is finding a phrase/word/sentence that is the same forward and backward. For example Star ratS
