Demotions of Astronomical Proportions

Forget everything you thought you knew about Pluto. It is no longer a planet.

So, what, the mnemonic goes, "My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine"? That doesn't make any sense at all. How are kids going to remember the planetary order?

How about, "Mister Vindictive Evil Magistrate Judge Served Us Notices"?

Anyone else have any ideas? Leave a comment.
