Sure, you recognize Mom and Dad are palindromes, but did you notice the racecar? It was a Toyota. Yep, that was another one. It could be expanded in context, too: A Toyota. Race fast, safe car.

When Mr. Carlson gets his next hair-brained idea for a Thanksgiving promotional for WKRP, someone please remind him of what happened last time.
