This is far superior to my intended post to celebrate this palindromic date – so check out my lovely friend at Poetry Fluff! And do please follow up her post for 2.2.22 – some more nice little snippets about British vs American English.

(Arguing the other side)

Five little ducks came out to play
On the western world’s new palindrome date
One little duck said, Hey, UK!
Thought you drew a line for the USA?
22/2 is what you say
2/22 is the co-rrect way
The line ‘twixt each is carefully placed
Thus, that’s
not a palindrome date

You’ve got duck egg all over your face


If you’re fairly new to this blog, you’ll have missed the previous similar but notthe same post, 2/2/22.

I suggest you check it out for context.


I might have argued your case, America, but I couldn’t bring myself to use the incorrect format in the title. Some traditions live totwo too deep.
