Today’s Rhymes With Orange:

(Play on mnemonicdemonic.) But can grammarians exorcise possession?

Three mnemonics here: one on spelling, one on the number of days in a month, and then one on the levels of biological classification, from largest to smallest:

kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species

There are a great many KPCOFGS mnemonics starting with

King Philip Came Over

and variously continuing:

For Good/Great Spaghetti/Soup/Steak
For Green Spaghetti
For Grape Soda
For Good Sex
From Great(er) Spain
From Germany Sailing
