Word nerds, unite!
We’re going to take a trip down palindrome lane and full disclosure: it’s going to get a little weird (but, like, the good kind of weird). Before we get going, here’s a quick recap on what palindromes are: they’re words, sentences, phrases, or even numbers that read the same forward and backward. Pretty simple, right? So, why have we never noticed some of these palindrome examples that are basically hidden in plain sight?
We need to talk about the fact that palindrome sentences exist in the first place. Whole sentences that read the same forward and backward? Surely not all of those sentences can make perfect sense, right? Well, fellow word nerds, some of them do, some of them don’t, and some of them – uh – really don’t (but those are our favourites).
Sit on a potato pan, Otis
Yep, first up on our list of bizarre-yet-humorous palindrome sentences is “Sit on a potato pan, Otis.” In case you’re wondering, this is definitely our new favourite comeback. Now we just need to find a potato pan…and someone named Otis.
Ah. Satan sees Natasha.
We don’t know what Natasha did, but apparently, Satan sees her – so that’s a problem. Good luck, Natasha.
