Whenever I hear "mnemonic devices," I remember Bart Simpson's classic:To which I replied, reasonably enough: "What does it stand for?" Here's her response:
"Canada's governors general: Clowns Love Haircuts; So Should Lee Marvin's Valet."
Thank you, Wikipedia:Classic.
When Bart is listing mnemonics, one he uses is "Quiet nerds burp only near school," to remember the original four Canadian provinces. (Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.
Another mnemonic Bart uses is for the Canadian Governors General, "Clowns love haircuts, so should Lee Marvin's valet" (Adrienne Clarkson, Roméo LeBlanc, Ray Hnatyshyn, Jeanne Sauvé, Edward Schreyer, Jules Léger, Roland Michener, and Georges Vanier)
