Honorable Mention for Lack of Sophistication in Pluto Mnemonic Device Contest

goes to...yours truly and her hubby Jonah!!!

In Kottke's contest to create a new mnemonic device since the 'death' of Pluto, we came up with one that frankly should have won but we'll proudly accept the award. As I fix the tiara on my head and Jonah and I take turns petting our trophy, enjoy our sophisticated wit:


* Now you know the order of the planets and that as Jonah explains, "Michael Jackson really did suck underage nipples, you know!"
** Thanks to Jason for a fun activity that clearly revealed the best in us!


So much for the former and stately mnemonic of "My Very Elegant Mother Just Sat Upon Nine Pillows...

However, "Molesting Very Excitedly, Michael Jackson Sucks Underage Nipples" does celebrate both the time period during which Pluto was dropped kicked and memorializes a small piece of our colorful, pop culture. And setting the records straight on both Pluto and Michael is just an added bonus.

I am waiting with bated breath to purchase the pending "Astronomy: From the Earth to the Universe – 7th Edition” by J.M. Pasachoff that is certain to include the new mnemonic!
