Palindromes Are Fun

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number or any other sequence which can be read the same forward and backward. I've been interested in palindromes for a long time. I taught my 6 year-old daughter what a palindrome is a while back, and now every time she looks at a digital clock and its says something like 7:07 or 3:53, she goes: "Palindrome!" Here are some funny phrasal palindromes:

A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.
A slut nixes sex in Tulsa.
A Toyota's a Toyota
Anne, I vote more cars race Rome to Vienna.
Are we not drawn onward, we few, drawn onward to new era?
Camus sees sumac.
Dammit, I'm Mad.
Damn. I, Agassi, miss again. Mad.
Depardieu, go razz a rogue I draped.
Do geese see God?
"Do nine men interpret?" "Nine men," I nod.
Dogma? I am God.
Dumb mobs bomb mud.

Ed, I saw Harpo Marx ram Oprah W. aside.
Eros? Sidney, my end is sore.
Flee to me, remote elf.
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog.
Go, desire vagina. Man I gave. Rise, dog.
God, a red nugget. A fat egg under a dog.
He won snow, eh?
I madam, I made radio! So I dared. Am I mad? Am I?
I maim Miami.
I'm a lasagna, hang a salami.
Is Don Adams mad? (A nod.) Si.
Kayak salad, Alaska yak.
Kodak ad, OK.
Laminated E.T. animal.
Lee had a heel.
Lid of fade, metallic soot, emit Garret-simple, help mister ragtime to oscillate me, daffodil.
Lisa Bonet ate no basil.
Man, Oprah's sharp on A.M.
Marge lets Norah see Sharon's telegram.
May a moody baby doom a yam?
"Naomi," I Moan.

Never odd or even.
No, it can, as it is, it is a war. Raw as it is, it is an action.
No, it is opposed, art sees trade's opposition.
No, it is opposition.
No, Mel Gibson is a casino's big lemon.

We panic in a pew.
Won't lovers revolt now?

Sweet, thanks Jason. There's a lot of these. Weird Al made a song out of some well-known palindromes, Demitri Martin wrote a 224-word palindromic poem, David Stephens wrote a 58,000-letter palindrome called "Satire: Vertias," and Lawrence Levine wrote a 31,957-word palindromic novel called 'Dr. Awkward and Olson in Oslo'. I can't imagine trying to do that...
