Hey, Pal. What’s a palindrome? (2)

I guess in Singlish, we would call a word that can be spelt forward/ backward as a ‘go-stan, balek’ (go-astern, return) word.

Responses included these palindromes from Dr David Deterding and Ms Yvonne Yin:

What the first man said to the first woman —
Madam, I’m Adam.

The fishy diet that a man told his doctor about —
Doc, note I diet on cod.

And Eliot who built the toilet —
Was It Eliot’s toilet I saw?

And the man with a plan for a canal —
A man, a plan, a canal -Panama!
