Me and Jonni were watching "They Might be Giants, Science" last night and they pointed out that since Pluto was deplaneted, the old mnemonic of
"My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas"
doesn't work any more and suggested instead :
"My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nothing!"
Which stuck me as terribly funny. And got me to thinking. And let me say that, now that it's too late, I am a bit disgusted with the stupidity of the human race for making us crutch along with the educated mother severing pizza thing all those years when:
"My Very Educated Memory Just Showed Us Nine Planets"
would have made way more sense. How did they not think of that one? I bet They did, but deliberately suppressed it. That would be like our educators. Of course now its too late. Curses.
So. Down to eight planets, and I have been lieing awake thinking of helpful memory tricks for you all to memorize their names and order. (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus Neptune, for those of you educated in public schools)
Here's a few:
My Victims Eat My Juicy Stuffed Up Nose.
Monstrous Vampires Eating My Jugular! Shutting Up Now!
My Vigorously Exercising Mother Just Showed Up Naked.
Once you get started on the naked theme it's hard to stop. More later mebbe...
