Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I've had some troubles keeping apart and , so I draw this picture to settle this once and for all. With a picture in my mind it will be near to impossible to mix the two characters up again.

I also found that once I write a mnemonic for a character whose mnemonic symbols all have pictures already, it is much easier for me to remember that character. I didn't have a picture for "inside the Anchor Inn" before; now that that's settled, it will help me remember quite some characters since I now have a way to distinctly and clearly imagine the associated mnemonic stories.
