Johnny Mnemonic Contest

The vote is in and Pluto is no longer considered a planet!

So obviously we need a new mnemonic for remembering the nine eight planets. And of course the best way to get a new mnemonic is to have a contest!

The old mnemonic was:

My (Mercury) Very (Venus) Excellent (Earth) Mother (Mars) Just (Jupiter) Served (Saturn) Us (Uranus) Nine (Neptune) Pizzas (Pluto)

Tell us what you think the new one should be. Extra points for originality, humor and rememberabilityness.

Email your entry(ies) or post them in the comments. The winner, as decided by a yet undecided panel of experts will win a handful of Homestar Runner drink coasters or a Pope Innocent III action figure, or something cool like that.

UPDATE: I suppose I'm disqualified from the contest so this doesn't count as an entry but here is a decidedly Catholic mnemonic to give an idea of the possibilities.
