What is Your Favorite Palindrome?

My favorite palindrome is officially “step on no pets.” What is a palindrome, you might ask? A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction. A palindrome is not necessarily a single word, such as the one I quoted at the beginning of this post. My hero, Weird Al, has a great list of palindromes that crack me up, and make me scratch my head.

I asked several people in the community what their favorite palindrome is, and the answers were surprising!
