I spent entirely too much time this morning looking for a “unique words” website I stumbled across earlier while doing some research. Back and forth, back and forth through my web history, through my previously closed tabs. Back and forth. Finally, I found it. In honor of that, I’m going to take a word from that site’s palindrome page for today’s word.
Wow! Wow! Despite what you may remember from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, a wow-wow is not a pig being cradled like a baby while a bunch of pepper is flying in the air. A wow-wow is a gibbon, particularly a silvery gibbon from Java.
Here is Duke the wow-wow going, “Whoa! Whoa!” on a couple of ropes. Duke’s mom-mom abandoned him at birth, but he seems to be doing fine now.
