Poor Pluto

Man Very Early Makes Jelly Sandwiches Under Neighbor's Porches.

(Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus (heh heh), Neptune, Pluto.)

That is how I remember the planets. I know there are other memory tricks out there for the planets but now that astronomers are saying Pluto is no longer a planet I am going to have to change my little acrostic (I looked this word up on dictionary dot com) because I can't just have it end with Neighbor. That would not make sense.

So people of the internet, can you make up a new acrostic for me to use? Please try and keep it clean because I may pass this knowledge on to my kids. Hell it does not have to be clean but remember my mom reads this blog.

I know! How are we supposed to remember that it isn't a planet when we are teaching our kids?

Poor Pluto...it's tragic. But think about how hard an acronym would be if they decided to include Xena.

Wouldn't it be something if mom and dad got together and decided that Jim was no longer a family member. Just for goofs.

Holy Moses, Weed Whacker! Yesterday I called my sister Angie Pluto. What has the world come to if I am thinking like a Weed Whacker?!

This is what I created in 7th grade to remember, William.
Most Vaginas Excite Men Just Seeing Underwear Nads Pump
You can't just exclude the pumping action there!
I also am at a loss. And I blogged about the loss of the Planet Formerly Known As Pluto.
Have a groovy weekend!

I saw on TV something similar to anonymous' suggestion. I always learned "My Very *Educated* Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas", and the new suggestion is now "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos."

Because how many guests do you have to have for your poor mom to serve NINE pizzas, anyway? Maybe that's why in the other version she is "energetic".

Lauren wins! Hands down.

Wait--there's been 2 planets ADDED to the solar system though--Cheres and the other one has a NUMERICAL name--but its nickname is Xena. Add those to your list. Xena is right before where Pluto was located and Cheres is located closer to Jupiter I think....

I was taught this in school:
M - Mary
V - Visits
E - Every
M - Monday
a (asteroid belt) - and
J - Just
S - Stays
U - Until
N - Noon
P - Period

This one is easy because you can take out the period!

I was distraught by this new Pluto removal too, and mainly because of the way I was taught to remember it with all of them:

My Very Easy Method - Just Set Up Nine Planets.

I also heard the one that Soleclaw posted, but hated it since you had to say "period" which always sounded stupid, don't you agree question mark?

rzdrms said...

well, this is easy: momo9 and lauren win! momo9's has no doubt upset anonymous though.

I still say they should have just shoved Pluto up Uranus, and not gotten rid of it altogether.
