ROLL OVER STEVE MARTIN TO SEE (OR CLICK TO HEAR) WHY HE IS LIKE A TRIPLE REVERSE.
The answer is that he is funny anyway you look at him, which leads us to what DoubleTake calls TRIPLE REVERSES. Although some people like to call them "ambigrams", DT is going to stay with our sorta sports' analogy (could use a bad pun here, but then some web blocker/censure might "eliminate" lots of people from seeing our website). 

NOTE: A TRIPLE REVERSE might have the characterists of a any of the HITS AND MISSES (SINGLES, REVERSES, ETC.). PLEASE SEE CHART BELOW FOR MORE DETAILS.

FLIPPED OUT (Flip Wilson) : Most DoubleTake TRIPLE REVERSES use this type of rotation, like the example "MOW" (above). Others include: suns, MOW, NOON, and SWIMS. While many TRIPLE REVERSE are symetrically like a DoubleTake REVERSE (the word is the same both ways, like "mow"), verbally asymmetric like a DoubleTake DOUBLE REVERSE (the words are different, like "mom" and "wow") but often include a DoubleTake meaning.

HARPS: (named after the famous Lucy and Harpo mirror routine). Known (in the ambigram world) as bilateral or mirror-image symmetry, TRIPLE REVERSE HARPS include words that can be both read normally and when reflected in a mirror. Although not really DoubleTakes, we include them here because they are interesting and who knows if Leonardo is looking? 

Some uppercase letters have vertical (left/right) symmetry: A, H, I, M, O, T ,U, V, W, X, Y. For example:

T
O
M
A
T
O

H
I
S
W
A
Y

Try these words in a mirror (or your mind if you mind): TOOT, wow, mom, HAH, YAY, TOT

Other uppercase letters have horizontal (top to bottom) symmetry: B, C, D, E, H, U, K, O, X.  For example: CHOICE or CODEBOOK.


The HIT List 
   HITS INTERNAL LINKS
   HITS CLASSIFICATION THEME / SCHEME / DEFINITION
Singles
Bar None

SINGLE: any word that spells a different word when read in either direction.

 Reverses
and Verses
REVERSE: a word or expression that spells the same thing forward as it does backwards.
Doubles
Bag Word Connections
DOUBLES: the same as a Single, (in that it spells another word backwards) but in addition, the meanings of the two words are connected in some way.
Double
Reverses
DOUBLE REVERSE: occurs whenever a word spells a different word when read backwords and the two words mean the opposite of each other.
TRIPLE: occurs when a word's spelling and meaning remain the same when reversed. In addition, any word that may have been in one of our other HITS may also be included.
TRIPLE REVERSE: occurs when a word or phrase can be read in more than one way or from more than a just one point in space. The basic TRIPLE REVERSE is a 180° rotation," mean"ing (pun intended) that it reads the same upside down and right side up.
