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.
"I know where MIZAR came from. What's the origin of RAZIM?"
"That's MIZAR spelled backwards."
"If I were lexdysic, I'd have known that."
Me (to the first officer, not over the radio) :
"He didn't get it."
"Contact the tower. Have a nice yad."
