Oz spelled backwards is "Zo"!

There's something weird I just realized....

Oz spelled backwards is "Zo"!


weird, huh? Like a subliminal message!

Can you think of any other word from the "Wizard of Oz" that says something when spelled backwards? I think I'm onto something here!

Um, what does "Zo" mean? I don't think this is pointless, but I don't get it.

The witch of the north's name might be something. But I can't spell it.

"Live not on evil" is also a palindrome.

For some reason, I like rearranging letters in my head and saying things backwards. I'm not dyslexic, I do it on purpose.

Like "Wal-mart" backwards is Tram-law. Crazy, huh?

Yeah, this thread seems pointless.....

While I didn't quite get the purpose of this thread from just the first post, it is fun.

Here's possibly longest palindrome,

According to M-W a palindrome is
quote:
a word, verse, or sentence (as "Able was I ere I saw Elba") or a number (as 1881) that reads the same backward or forward
There is nothing that says a name can not be used in a palindrome. Therefore it makes little difference if "Rouy" is a word or not.

Palindromes are a game. This needs to go to Dale's Bar....with some editing.

Well, obviously "Zo" is part of the language used by whatever conspiracy group corrupted L. Frank Baum! As is "Adnelg", which is Glenda spelled backwards. (Glenda: The Good Witch of the North).

And, if you want a few palindromes...

No Son!

Sue Us?

Radar!

Well, I do know that OZ was taken from a filing cabinet which read "O-Z". Or so I heard...

Glenda = Adnelg

Adnelg was the writer's original name before he came to Earth and adopted an Earthling name so no one would know he was not of our world.

Either that, or Baum hung out with Aldous Huxley and did copious amounts of LSD with him.

Then again, when the Wizard of Oz was first published, Huxley was 6. But they must've started them off early those days, no?

no, i've been doing that ever since i was little. i often read things backwards before i would read them forwards. it bugged the hell out of me.

i dubbed it sdrawkcab syndrome. haha. it seemed like some sort of cruel affliction to me.

p.s. my all-time favorite word is embargo. why? because backwards it spells "o grab me". Pleased
