“Taco cat spelled backwards is taco cat”

“Taco cat spelled backwards is taco cat” is a popular sentence with a palindrome (“taco cat”). “Taco cat” has many internet images of a cat inside a taco.
 
The “taco cat” palindrome has been cited in print since at least 1992.
   
             
9 July 1995, New York (NY) Times, “On Language: Surveilling Maskirovka” by Willliam Safire, pg. A12:
Every year, somebody comes out with a collection of them (palindromes—ed.) that hooks me. This year’s is by Craig Hansen, from Plume Books, titled “Ana, Nab a Banana,” where the taco cat pursues sleek eels.
