The Incredible 224-Word Palindrome (Reads The same Backward As Forward) Of Demetri Martin

I’ve always been fascinated by palindromes: you know, the phrases that read the same back as forth. I mean, can you imagine how hard it is to come up with a sequence like that?

So you can understand my excitement when i stumbled upon this 224-word palindrome of Demetri Martin. Not ten, not fifty, not hundred, but a whopping 224 word that can be read the same from the start or the end. Wow!

Without further ado, here it is: (the article continues after the ad)

“Dammit I’m Mad”
Demetri Martin

Dammit I’m mad.
Evil is a deed as I live.
God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
In my halo of a mired rum tin.
I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
Be still if I fill its ebb.
Ew, a spider… eh?
We sleep. Oh no!
Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
Both, one… my names are in it.
Murder? I’m a fool.
A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash,
A Goddam level I lived at.
On mail let it in. I’m it.
Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
“Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
Evil is a deed as I live.
Dammit I’m mad.

I don’t know if you got into the trouble to check it but i did and, trust me, bar some punctuation, this reads the same either way.

Now how cool is that?
