My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine…?

August 24, 2006

They cannot downgrade Pluto to a “dwarf planet!” If they do, a very impressive mnemonic device I learned in elementary school is useless!

My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine Pickles=Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, PLUTO.

Because of this mnemonic device, I can name my planets in order, very quickly. I’ve even shared this gem with Jonas, who will probably fail now because I taught him “pickles.”

I guess we don’t have to throw the whole thing away. It could be:

My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Noodles.

My Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nutella.

That’s all I got, and neither of them are any good.

  1. Well, would you rather have to add onto it? I think that would be more difficult given that one of the new “planets” would be Xena.

  2. Our Very Eager Mother Just Served Us Nine Pickles Xactly.

    Oh, you probably never liked Pluto, anyway.

    😉

  3. LOL…My history with the planet has always caused me to lean in the direction of it NOT being a planet. So, this all has been very exciting to me. Plus, as a science teacher, it’s fun to be able to say, “You are experiencing a majory scientific event!”

  4. I heard about Pluto being berated on the news. Poor poor Pluto. That was one of my favorite planets as a kid. No joke. I liked the fact that it was farthest from the sun. The distance gave it an eeire, illusive feeling.

    How’s that?

  5. I never knew people had such an affection for Pluto! That makes me laugh! 🙂
