Question Of The Week

Question of the week: When you were in school did you ever make up a rhyme or little saying to remember something?

My youngest daughter made the mistake of asking me what year Christopher Columbus discovered America the other day. I told her:

In 1492 Columbus was a Jew,
He sat on the grass,
Which tickled his ass,
in 1492.

My mother told me that little rhyme when I was a kid and it is the only way I can remember when Columbus discovered America. 

I use Never Eat Shredded Wheat to remember  North, East, South and West. Another one I have is My Very Excellent Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas for Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto.
