My piano and organ majoring brother came up with a game for me, the former English major, to amuse him with.

The traditional memory tricks for the treble clef, Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, et al, are old and dumb.  So here are some substitutions that haggard theory teacher and studious bassoonist alike can use instead.

Emulsified Grain Becomes Delicious Falafel
Eagles Get Beagles Delivered Faster
Evil Goethe Begat Damned Faust
Entering Georgia By Day Ferry
Evil Geniuses Betray Darkest Fears
Empty Gestures Become Dubious Facades
Elevated Gantry Ballast's Dangerous Fall
Emasculated Guy's Betrothed Daughter, Felicity
Energy Generated By Dancing Feet
Ernesto Guevara's Beard-Deficient Face
Elementary Geography Bee Deserves Funding
EVERYONE GET BUSY!  DANCE, FUCKERS!
Excited Gambler Betting Double Fails
Esoteric Ginger Bread Duck Feet
Euphoria Generates Burning Disco Fever
Epiphone Guitars Boast Dynamic Fretwork
EMRON Gets Business Degree Framed
Enraged Gestapo Burns Down Factory
Edward Gorey's Bizarre Drawings Fascinate
Estonian Goat Butter Dairy Farm
Enjoy Gary Busey's Drunken Face

I don't think I can top that last one.  Help me out here.

I'm a fan of these two:

Fat Bitches Eat All Doughnuts God Creates

and

(order of sharp keys)

This is going to completely take over all my idle thought processes, I swear.  Here's a couple that popped into my head on the commute this morning.

The only way I can remember the order of the species classification system (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, etc.) is this awful mnemonic invented by a 10th grade classmate:

King Phillip Can Only Find Gay Sex

This sustained me through several years of biology exams. Props to Maaik for "Enjoy Gary Busey's Drunken Face," that's my favorite!

It's funny you mention that, as my junior high earth science class came up with:

Kayla Peed Corn Over Fred's Good Studebaker

and as much as I'd like to, I can't forget that.

For the layers of the OSI model (computer networking bullshit) I use the acronym
Phil
Donahue
never
televises
sick
people
anymore

for

Physical, Data Link, Network, Transport, Session, Presentation, Application

I also use the stupid suggestion that a buddy came up to associate the Transport layer with Tampon Layer (provides flow control  Rolling Eyes )

long ago, when i was a geology/oceanography undergrad... the only mnemonic i was ever able to use successfully was for remembering the Paleozoic period, including intervening epochs...

Peter, Paul and Mary Died Slowly... Over Coals

best mnemonic ever....

by "pnemeonic" you mean "mnemonic" and not "pneumatic," right?? because explicitly sexual pneumatic devices are surely the stuff of nightmares...
