Most Worthless Mnemonic Ever

The most recent XKCD makes fun of a mnemonic aid that I've never found useful:

30 Days Hath September

Here's what happens when I try to recite this one:

Thirty days hath September
April, [March, May or June], and [November or December]...

The mnemonic doesn't work at all when it's so easy to insert the wrong month and still have the poem sound right. I much prefer the knuckle method.

That is all.
