Congratulations.

By the way, wouldn't it make more sense for the word palindrome to be palindromic?

maybe. until then, we have to content ourselves with simpler palindromes like YEHEY!

Hm... There are a few out there that I really enjoy:
"A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!"
and there's this cool story that is one really long palindrome:

World's Longest Palindrome (http://www.norvig.com/palindrome.html), but not very elegant.

There's a Turkish sentence that's become a national joke (of sorts) for its palindromic quality:

"Ey Edip Adana'da pide ye"

what's it mean? I'm guessing something to do with some poor chap named Adnan?

No, rather some poor chap named Edip. Edip is a men's name, Adana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adana) is a province and pide (http://www.tuerkei-home.de/Fotos/Kochen/pide.jpg) is a food similar to pizza. I'd translate it as "Hey Edip, eat pide in Adana."
