Misleading thread title. :(

I read "lateral gene transfer". :O

Twas a pun. Memes, memetics... you know..

No, no...not a pun...What's that thing that spells the same backwards as forwards?

A palindrome. "A man, a plan, a canal; Panama!

(Which has evolved: "A man, a plan, a canoe, pasta, heros, rajahs, a coloratura, maps, snipe, percale, macaroni, a gag, a banana bag, a tan, a tag, a banana bag again (or a camel), a crepe, pins, Spam, a rut, a Rolo, cash, a jar, sore hats, a peon, a canal--Panama!")
