The Top Ten

Hangover (Revognah)

2Police (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.


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!


Sounds like a Sci-fi Language.

3Park (Krap)
Linkin Park sounds very amusing said backwards (Niknil Krap).


Hello Mr. Niknil Krap. Thank you for sharing that with me.


That's Mr. Niknil Krap to you. They're my favorite band, and I'll have you know they've only been called Niknil Krap three times. Once by you, and twice by me. Funny thing is, my name is Niknil Krap. Ironic, isn't it?

4Musical (Lacisum)
Sounds like a laxativ


5Solicitor (Roticilos)

6Telephone (Enohpelet)

7Computer (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.
Oh dear, PositronWildhawk, is this a chink in our nerdy, crazy friendship?
