From Unforgettable Languages, a company promoting a word-association method of language learning, comes what is without a doubt the Worst Mnemonic Device Ever:

Yeah, imagine. I can't think of a single way to generate that donkey-at-a-bureau imagine without first knowing that burro means donkey - in which case, the chest of drawers only confuses things, no?

For what it's worth, the way I remember it is to imagine Raymond BURR as Perry Mason, kicking ASS (as in "donkey") in pursuit of justice. Just like Burro Hall.

(I found this via this blog, which also has this item that's just too funny not to link to.)
