Re: Mnemonics for the order of the alphabet (enough already!)

Hey - I was just KIDDING when I asked for a mnemonic for conditional
clauses to the tune of "Do The Hokey Pokey"!

I feel sorry for that poor writer who wrote last month (isn't it time to
split the archive into a March and an April discussion so it doesn't
take so long to load?) complaining that our discussions were at times
too theoretical (I think it was the aspect discussion that he was
reacting to). We've now seemingly gone 'way off the deep end in the
opposite direction (though the responses have been amusing at times).
I'd be surprised if we haven't lost a few new listmembers - I mean,
after all, Biblical Greek scholars sitting around thinking up
nursery-rhyme ditties and commercial jingles (hey, I hadn't thought of
that before - maybe the alphabet can be learned to the tune of "I wish I
was an Oscar Meyer Wiener" or "Munch, munch, munch a bunch of Fritos
Corn Chips"?). I hope the Jesus Seminar doesn't get wind of this.
