Not sure how we were supposed to know it was a palindrome from the clue. That's not one of the usual ones I've heard. I assumed it was a song lyric or line from a movie. Know nothing about skateboarding, either, so learned something new today.

Yeah, I'm with Ander217, that's VERY obscure. If you haven't heard or seen it before you have very little chance of getting it.

"Able I was, ere I saw elba...". is familiar. I'm 46 with a college education and I've never heard of the potato pan palindrome before. If this is European, then fair enough, not likely many of you got Oakland. Sauce for the goose.

American and never heard it. Only got it because I couldn't remember the Garfield dog right away and guessed Otis as his name before remembering it. So I got it right but didn't know why! I agree; "A man, a plan, a canal, Panama" is probably the most well-known palindromic sentence.

Definitely not european, I've never heard of it.

After googling, it is thought up by Jon Agee, a children's book writer and illustrator from New York. So quite american.

He made a children's book by that name, and it is a book about .. palindromes (from 1999 I believe).

Is an otter really considered a sea mammal? I mean they live on land and in water but rather lakes and rivers than seas. I'd say a dolphin is a sea mammal.

So what would you recommend they change the name of the "sea otter" to?

I agree. Most otters we think of here are river otters.

Studies have shown that dolphins have difficulty holding hands. The most likely culprit is that they don't have them.
