"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.
I've had a lifelong interest in English and writing, which I maintained throughout my engineering career. My computer language skills and open-source word lists made the Palindromedary possible, along with a sense of how to apply technology to the task of composing a palindrome. Drawing on my web development experience since 2002, a website seemed the natural choice for first publication.
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.
