Bonus Palindrome! (with upper-case P):
Every morning when we wake up in Alaska, the first thing we do is look outside to see if there are any Russians hanging around. And if there are, we ask them, "What are you doing here?" And they always answer: "Brews, nasyaw! Layeht dnae rehgni, odu? Oy! Eratahw mehtk saewer aereht, fid nad-nu or agnig nahs. Naissury 'naerae' rehtfie, esote distu? Oko olsio-dewgnihtts rifehtak. Salani pue, kawew-nehwgnin, romy reve!"
