palindromes - wierd al style!

A few years ago, I found this book, and I thoroughly enjoyed its contents. A few years later, someone introduced me to the song "Bob" by Wierd Al. Just yesterday, a student sent me a link to the music video! Once again, Wierd Al is clever, weaving together palindromes to create one wacky song!
Palindrome: A word, phrase, or sentence that reads the same backward or forward.

Two of my favorite palindromes are:

drowsy sword, and

oozy rat in a sanitary zoo,

Although after visiting this site, I think I might have a new favorite!

Oops. Yes, that's correct. I suppose I should go back and change my "solitary" rat to a "sanitary" one! (edit made 1/20/07)
