"One-ton knot, Eno." "One big knot, Tonk." "Gibe?" "No." "One-ton knot, Eno."- Ray N. Franklin, © 19:02 19 Jul 2020
Seed: wonton Time: 15 minutes I was testing some code and entered the classic palindrome, "Wonton, not now!" As so often happens, a couple of random perverse thoughts popped up. One was to add a k between wonton and not: Wonton knot, now! The other told me to replace the homophone won with one. That lead to another short palindrome. One-ton knot, Eno. Then I played around with the natural response a person might have to a one-ton knot: "That's one big knot." The last three words completed the excercise and I had a conversation between a couple of friends admiring an example of post-Gordian conspicuous consumptionism.
Part A is sure not one Russia trap.- Lloyd Wood, © 10:49 24 Feb 2021
It has been somewhat difficult not to think about Russia over the last four years, so why not use it in a palindrome?!
Part laminate id, a diet animal trap.- Lloyd Wood, © 16:37 24 Feb 2021
Everyone has a laminate piece of identification, but I’ll bet there aren’t many who have a diet animal trap!
Pu, can I snort celeb electrons in a cup?- Ray N. Franklin, © 13:24 14 Dec 2020
Time: 15 minutes Seed: electrons Browsing the Main list, I saw the entry for electrons. The reverse split stood out: snort-cele. At the very least, I wanted to know how many words ended with snort so I entered electrons into the Word Explorer field in Palindrome Composer. Then I selected the snort-cele split. So how many words end in snort? Just one, snort, but that was enough. I wrote "electrons snort cele" in the Current Composition field. Somehow that didn't sound useful, so I reversed the phrase to "snort cele electrons" and saw a possibility. The first word that begins with cele is celeb. I added the b to the end of cele and got "snort celeb electrons." That's a truly surreal phrase. It also solved the doubled-letter in the middle problem. Now the palindrome isn't quite so obviously symmetrical. But I didn't want to stop there. Playing around, I expanded the phrase to "I snort celeb electrons i." For no particular reason I expanded the right side to the word inactive. Then the left side became evitcani and I added some spaces to make "evit can I snort celeb electrons inactive?" That sounded unsatisfying, and, the only word ending in evit is the name Levit. Dropping evit, I looked at the remainder and came up with "can I snort celeb electrons in a c," which has a nice grammatical flow. Randomly trying cup for the last word, I decided it was finished. "Pu, can I snort celeb electrons in a cup?" Pu is a name and also the atomic symbol for Plutonium, a rich source of electrons, both ordinary and celebrity.
Rail set is a sites liar- Kris Rickards, © 10:51 29 Dec 2020
This palindrome is inspired by those trainsets you get and ignore as child, but become obsessed with as a retired Grandfather. These old men in their attics and sheds create this idyllic landscapes in the most minutiae detail based upon the sceneries invented by their rose tinted nostalgia. But as Simone Signoret said in 1975, "nostalgia isn't what it used to be," and they are missing the truth of history. Old men hobbyists, And young novelists Create their own little worlds. Based on reality Letting their mind flee A power of God unfurled. But it isn't true Skies aren't always blue Quaint, peaceful and full of bliss These make believe lands Crafted by many hands by men who just need a kiss.
Rats! No iron on Orion star.- Lloyd Wood, © 14:12 18 Mar 2021
I was counting on it. And to think I traveled all that way for nothing... I like “No iron on Orion” by itself but the additional words seem to help it make more sense.
Re: Grub — “Lion on Oil Burger.”- Lloyd Wood, © 21:35 17 May 2021
Strange fare, but don’t knock it until you try it, I suppose.
Repel a storm. Ergo, depart! Oh, can a reviled snot sue us tons? Deliver a nacho. Trap Ed. Ogre M rots a leper.- Lloyd Wood, © 17:29 25 Feb 2021
For me, explaining how I do it is more difficult than doing it and much less fun. For this palindrome, I had compiled a list of words (mostly in twos) I had thought of that are palindromic. In this case, I started with “snot tons” and it grew from there. I also just wrote down random words to see if the ends of them could be made into a word, reversed. It took me about 0.5 hours for this one and I laughed out loud when I finished because it is so nonsensical, but some words just go so good together. It doesn’t hurt that I go by my middle name, Ed. Just did this today, 02/25/2021.
Have you ever tried to compose a palindrome? It can be hard unless you happen to be a stable genius. I’m no genius and I failed to ever write an original palindrome, until I created Franklin’s Palindromedary. I did it to help my underperforming brain. And it worked! The computer did the hard work, and I just supplied a little creativity. I’m sure you are more creative than me and that the Palindromedary will work for you. Give it a try today. I’ll pay you for palindromes I accept for an anthology.
