From Word Genius
The next time you have to go to a boring event, challenge yourself to speak in palindromes! Palindromes are words or sentences that read the same backwards as they do forwards — a symmetrical collection of letters (excluding punctuation and spaces). Composing a palindrome is no easy feat — the longer, the harder. Here are a few prime examples that might hurt your brain, but they’ll win you big-time conversational points.
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.
Sixty-three words, 263 letters
Sounds like a good party! It might look like a simple list of people who have sinned, but it is indeed a palindrome.

Straw? No, too stupid a fad. I put soot on warts.
