The double gives it a new twist, doesn't it! I hadn't thought of that angle. And I hope Otis comes along and find the second one. Clever, Mountain Man. :)

Hi Didge,

This has been my favourite palindrome ever since I found it about two years ago now:


Since coming upon that one, however, I have suffered from aibohphobia, and thus had to stop looking at palindromes.

My goodness, I hope they took precautions, Virginia.

I agree, it is wort remembering. I'll add it to my As file, along with aibohphobia which is brilliant. Wonder who dreamed THAT one up. :)

This is one of the clever ones, Ray. I can never remember de Lesseps' name -- which probably defeats the purpose of the palindrome. :(

I can never tell which questions are going to work. Some that I like are virtually ignored; others, that seem too ordinary, get lots of answers.

Great question Didge. Sometimes you need simple questions for my simple mind.
