My Palindrome My... (my palindrome eye)
I think what I like best about palindromes is that palindromicity gives a phrase validity, despite it's inevitable absurdity. Absurdity is good. I think I would be disappointed with a palindrome that said something normal. I must point out however, that absurdity does not mean nonsense. I can't stand a palindrome that has been created for the sole purpose of being the same forwards and backwards, without regard for meaning and usually with emphasis on length -- long lists of words or names, for instance. What's the point of achieving that?

Live to help pot topple hot evil!
