Palindromes

A palindrome is a word, line, verse, number, sentence, etc., that reads the same backward as forward, as "Madam, I'm Adam," "Poor Dan is in a droop," or the one I mentioned the other day, "Was it a cat I saw?"

A reader pointed me to Weird Al Yankovic's song "Bob"--a Dylanesque piece made up of nothing but palindromes.
