New Solar System Mnemonic

On September 8, 2006, in Marginalia, by JB

Kottke reader Josh Mishell has done us all a favor by shooting two birds in one stone: he’s suggested a new mnemonic for the now-official (some Pluto die-hards insist it’s “semi-official“) eight planets of the solar system, and an across-the-continents spit at those bright anal-retentive boys and girls who “made a difference” in Prague.

My! Very educated morons just screwed up numerous planetariums

…replaces other very helpful mnemonics in schoolchildren’s popular lexicon, like “My very elegant mother just served us nine pizzas.”

Hat tip to Kottke.
