    Not sure of this came up before.

    I am a five-letter word. I sound the same when you remove my first letter. I sound the same when you remove my 3rd letter. I sound the same when you remove my last letter, and I sound the same when you remove all three. Which word am I?

    Don't know where we are at - but here's an interesting one.

    Not a "riddle" as such - more an interesting fact :

    Also not a riddle. Today’s date is a palindrome.

    I am sure I saw it branded, is it not a brand?

    Edit,
    the only google match is some pre-WW2 diplomat, but the surname is probably coincidence.

    You are correct - it is a large pepper-mill and is called a Rubirosa.
    But the question is why.
    The Large and tall pepper-mill is affectionately called a Rubirosa, after Porfirio Rubirosa Ariza who was a Dominican diplomat, race car driver, soldier and polo player. But Rubirosa was also known as the playboy of the century - having being married to the 2 riches woman in the world at the time (well not at the same time...)

    The 11/12" (or I suppose taller ones) pepper-mill is "named" after one of his appendages.

    Not necessarily. If you write the date as 2021-02-12, then it doesn't work out at all. But if you write it as 12-02-2021, then it works as a palindrome.

    So no date palindrome in the states today for their normal notation
