But Palindrome doesn't start with an E. I seen the palindrome but was to dim to not figure out Elba. I was looking for another word for palindrome that started with an E.

Yes, but what you were guessing was the "it". Really it should have been punctuated as (quote) "Able was I ere I saw" it (unquote), but that type of clue often takes liberties with punctuation. Anyway, that makes it clearer why the answer was "Elba", not "palindrome".

If you're going to give one fill-in-the-missing-word clue as "The ____ has landed", then instead of "Able was I, ere I saw it", the clue should be "Able was I, ere I saw ___".

Historically, blacks were made from ebony, whites from ivory. Now though, they're both mostly made of plastic coated or enameled wood.

Without giving away a spoiler - The "Able was I..." quote was what Napoleon said when he saw the Isle to which he was to be exiled. It also (when the answer is added to the end) a palindrome (not a spoiler, but a major hint there).

Napoleon would not have said the quote as I'm sure his command of the English language was not up to making palindromes.

What's the deal with "Elvis has left the building"? Is it from some kind of a tv show, a movie, a song?
+1
level 68
Jun 24, 2015
I think they always announced it when Elvis had left the building where he made a gig, so people wouldn't just wait for him to come back and ignore the other artists.

Or trample each other trying to get a glimpse of him as he was leaving. After his last song the band would keep playing long enough for him to exit at the back and get away before the fans engulfed him.
+1
level 54
May 15, 2018
I believe the phrase was related to the fact that Elvis did not do encores, so they announced that he had left the building, so people knew not to expect an encore.
