Overheard in IFR Magazine's "On the Air"

One day, while going into Detroit, Michigan, I had this exchange with a controller. They had an intersection MIZAR for many vears and added RAZIM.

Me:
"I know where MIZAR came from. What's the origin of RAZIM?"

Controller:
"That's MIZAR spelled backwards."

Me:
"If I were lexdysic, I'd have known that."

[Silence.]

Me (to the first officer, not over the radio) :
"He didn't get it."

Controller:
"Contact the tower. Have a nice yad."
