The Top Ten

Police (Ecilop)
Thanks P.W: that's just made my day! Haha! I think all the Welsh words look and sound like English words backwards. Great language though.


Heddlu is actually pronounced HE-TH-LEE so sort it out yeah you mug
You think that's a sci-fi language? In Welsh, "Police" is "Heddlu" (pronounced head-loo). I bet the Welsh can't walk past a single crime scene without laughing!


2Park (Krap)
Linkin Park sounds very amusing said backwards (Niknil Krap).


This is my last name laugh out loud
Linkin Park. I get that Brit.


3Hangover (Revognah)
What is this? The name of a BAR mitzvah or something? Get it? Don't mean to be racist.


Laugh out loud your list's are funny Britgirl.


It sounds like an Irish pub!

4Yellow (Wolley)
What a 'wolley' word.

12Computer (Retupmoc)
It's an anagram of "Rectum Op". So dyslexics everywhere will be texting/tweeting everyone that they've just got a new rectum op! At least it's better than saying "I have dailysex" (anagram of dyslexia).


Retupmoc. I like this. I'm going to call my tortoise this because I like saying this.
