Madam, I'm Adam

Dennis, Nell, Edna, Leon, Nedra, Anita, Rolf, Nora, Alice, Carol, Leo, Jane, Reed, Dena, Dale, Basil, Rae, Penny, Lana, Dave, Denny, Lena, Ida, Bernadette, Ben, Ray, Lila, Nina, Jo, Ira, Mara, Sara, Mario, Jan, Ina, Lily, Arne, Bette, Dan, Reba, Diane, Lynn, Ed, Eva, Dana, Lynne, Pearl, Isabel, Ada, Ned, Dee, Rena, Joel, Lora, Cecil, Aaron, Flora, Tina, Arden, Noel, and Ellen sinned

Allegedly, it's the longest named-based palindrome ever written. As palindromes go, it's lacking spice (nothing like "Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas"), but over at Significant Objects, Ben Greenman has a clever short-short which uses the "Dennis...and Ellen sinned" palindrome as its springboard.

I have a soft spot in my heart for S.O. since they published one of my short-shorts a few months ago.
