Enjoy today's Think Thursday mentalfloss.com Brain Game, a classic puzzle we first offered about four years ago:

Add the names Sharon, Marge, and Norah to the sentence below - in the right order - and the sentence adopts what special property? "_______ lets ________ see ________'s telegram."

Here is the SOLUTION.

THE SOLUTION:

The sentence becomes a palindrome if the names are entered this way:

Marge lets Norah see Sharon's telegram.

Palindromes contain the same sequence of letters both forward and backward. Thanks for playing!
