My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nuts

Apparently nine pies weren't very good for us. Perhaps our mother is on Atkins. Still, it's probably better to lose a planet than to gain hundreds and hundreds, in the grand scheme of elementary school mnemonic devices. My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pies, Clobbering Quite Orange Sheep Xrays?

(Why does Every Good Boy Deserve Fudge? I remember this mnemonic, but I don't remember what it helps you remember. :( )

It's for the lines in the staff in treble cleff for music, isn't it? It goes with FACE.

My very erotic mate joyfully satisfies unusual needs pleasurably. (Although I guess s/he won't be doing it pleasurably anymore.)

It goes with YOUR face! I wonder why I know that. I didn't know I ever knew that.

I remember a rather naughty mnemonic device for remembering cranial nerves. Damn if I can remember what the letters in OOOTTAFAGVSH really stand for: Olfactory, optic ... uh, some other ones ... vagal ... hypoglossal(?). Yeah. I definitely remember the naughty words, though? ;-)

Don't forget All Cows Eat Grass / All Cars Eat Gas.

Auditory (also vestibulocochlear - thank you, Wikipedia for fixing my spelling)
Spinal Accessory

These are the ones that I can usually come up with looking at the letters. I was missing:


Pretty good for not practicing cranial nerves in a long time. I found that I kept forgetting the mnemonics.

I'm still confused after they took the four foodgroups and put them into a triangle.

I don't know All Cars Eat Gas. What's that mean?

Spaces on the bass clef.

Good to know you remember mnemonics from playing the piano, even if you don't remember what they mean.

gravatar Fraulein N - August 25, 2006 - 1:27 PM -

apete, whatever you do, don't look at the NEW food pyramid. Talk about confusing; it sort of blew my mind.

On old Olympus towering tops a Fin and German viewed some hops. (Good job, Alfie.) I don't know the naughty one.
