TacocaT is a Palindrome

On the radio there is a channel that has a game with the name of something like "That's True or That's a Crock". I unfortunately listen to it from time to time as it is a quiz of sorts and I sure do like useless knowledge. This week they asked: True or False, a Palindrome is a word that is spelled the same frontwards or backwards. Well the guy didn't get it right but I sure did. Once they explained it the guy said, oh like dad. They thought he said dead and made fun of him. I decided that I needed to let these radio guys know about my favorite palindrome;
Yes I know it is not really a word but it still makes me laugh. So I called them up and actually got through. (That in itself is a miracle.) I told them my word and they had to say, well that isn't a word. What is it? I said it is a cat in a taco costume making it a tacocat. They then had to listen to themselves talk some more about other palindromes such as pip and mom. Heaven forbid they come up with one longer than 3 letters. A few minutes later, low and behold, I was on the radio. It didn't sound like me so I am sure no one knew it was me hehehe until now. =)
