2019 saw an abundance of world-class palindromes, and for that we are grateful. As I have made clear in earlier posts, a palindrome is a word or phrase that reads the same forwards and backwards. Famous examples of palindromes include: “Madam, my name’s Adam” and “Was it a cat that I just saw? I hope so, I like cats.”

It should come as no surprise that some are calling 2019 “The Year Of The Palindrome” and “A Most Wonderful Year For Palindromes.” After all, what other recent year has gifted us with so many words or phrases that read the same whether perceived going forwards or backwards?

Let’s close out this year’s installment of my lists (my wonderful lists, that is) with a celebration — and a remembrance — of “the year in palindromes.” Here are the TOP TEN PALINDROMES OF 2019:

10. Mayo man on a yam

9. Is it Star Wars? A la Saran Wrap, ’tis I.

8. Pelosi is eloping!!!

7. He got a toga, eh?

6. Manafort’s on an ant farm

5. 024: Reefer referees see reefer! (420)

4. Impeachment? “To each his own”

3. (TIE) Dallas, Texas is a sexy salad / Sexy salads in Dallas, Texas

2. Eels sleep in peepee

1. Wow in 2019

And with that, we take our leave of my year-end lists! I wish you a happy new year and look forward to seeing you again next year with my lists on this web site.
