What Planet Are You On?

Mnemonics are defined as memory devices we use to remember larger pieces of information. Word jingles are a great way to remember lists. Did you learn any of these to remember the planets? I posted these from a meme a couple of years ago.

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune

English My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos.

German Mein Vater Erklärt Mir Jeden Sonntag Unseren Nachtimmel.

My father explains our night sky to me every Sunday.

French Mon Vieux, Tu M’as Jeté Sur Une Navette.

Dude, you threw me on a shuttle.

This list doesn’t include the dwarf planets of Pluto, Eris, Ceres, Makemake and Haumea, which, a 2015 NY Times article suggested would have to be something like:

My Very Educated Mother Cannot Just Serve Us Nine Pizzas – Hundreds May Eat!

If you’re freezing your tooshies like we are here in London this weekend, give us your best mnemonic for your 9 planets or 13 planets + dwarf planets.
