the verb was sinned. they all sinned. very good teaser... i bet it was hard to come up with. but i have plenty of time. note my last comment on your 'three paradoxes' teaser... took me a while, but anything in the pursuit of comedy ;)

Ridiculously crazy sentence! I had fun, but I got it because of the more common palindrome, Dennis sinned.

I never get these forward, backward things.
I thought it was nobody's name had a U in it. Maybe there is one.
Clever idea!

Jun 24, 2007

really easy. buy pretty fun all the same. did you come up with that yourself? if so, your pretty awsome. If not,your still awsome, but not nearly as awsome as you would have been.
cloughmeAws*
Jun 24, 2007

Just a bit easy... It probably took longer to type it out than to figure it out.

good teaser,my mind isn't working but it made sense after i saw the answer.

that was very good! One of my favotites and very clever!!

Jun 24, 2007

Liked it very much but some of the names are incorrect when you read them backwards. You have added/subtracted some letters but otherwise very good little quiz!
mepapaAus*
Jun 24, 2007

yeah it was a good one but the commas don't really work either or does that matter in a case like this?

OMG! Did u make this up or did someone show u? either way - WOW! - The things a brain can think of!

Good one!

Although I don't have much trouble spotting them, palindromes require a bit mental yoga that I just can't manage. I do get strange looks though, when I quote some of the more common ones. i.e. someone at work says they have a plan, and I quietly intone, "A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!"

And then there's the original palindrome: "Madam, I'm Adam," and the matching response, "Eve."

Great teaser! I loved it.
FatHeadAus*
Jun 24, 2010

It was easy enough; I noticed "Dennis" and "sinned" and didn't need to check the rest.
patiencewithaP*us*
Jun 24, 2010

I started out with a big question mark but when I saw "sinned," I got it. Wow! That must've taken a while to do! Great teaser!
antlerladyAus*
Jun 24, 2010

Stared at it for a while then focused on sinned for some reason and it popped out at me! Fun one!
barbaralv8*

Took me a bit, but I got it!
auntiesisAus*
Jun 25, 2010

I got it right away, but it must have taken quite a while to construct. Good one.

I've also seen "Dennis sinned" so got it after only a few moments. Had I not been familiar with the shorter sentence, I cannot say I would have got this one.
Maggiethe8th*us*
Jun 24, 2013

Didn't get it, but liked the reminder to open up a little when I saw the answer!
gaylewolfAus*
Jun 24, 2013

I agree with Auntie Sis! Good one! Thanks for posting!
Gospelo_O*
Jun 24, 2013

Really nice one there but it took me some time to figure it out cos I sure wasn't in the mood for a palindrome .....but anyway I think you really did a great job;)......
asupmdr*
Jun 24, 2013

This is really weird, but no Biblical names have sinned. No Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Daniel, Abraham, Adam, etc.
dawnrising*be*

Note; the middle letter in this palindrome is the "s" in "Sara".
