Mnemonic symbol: King Solomon is someone who wants to cut everything in half. - Mnemonic by Matthias, over 2 years ago | add a painting


One day, the mean crocodile (丷) and Beelzebub (b-) came to King Solomon (mnemonic symbol for 半 in 判 伴 叛 etc.) in Anchor Inn's bathroom (-an4), and Beelzebub said:

Your Majesty, this crocodile (丷) and I share the same basement hobby room. Not long ago I soldered this huge capacitor (二) to my circuit, and three days later she soldered a huge capacitor to hers. We do not share the basement hobby room with anyone else.

One night while we were all asleep, she hooked up the capacitor reversed, and it popped. Then while I was still asleep, she got up and unsoldered my capacitor. She soldered it to her circuit, then she soldered her popped capacitor into my circuit. In the next evening when I wanted to continue to work on my circuit, I saw that the capacitor (二) was dead. But when I looked at the serial number in the light, I knew it wasn't mine.

"No!" the mean crocodile (丷) shouted. "It was your capacitor all along. My capacitor is alive!" "The dead capacitor is yours," Beelzebub (b-) yelled. "Mine is alive!"

They argued back and forth in front of Solomon (mnemonic symbol for 半, because he likes to cut things in haves), until finally he said, "Both of you say this live capacitor is yours. Someone bring me a sword." A sword was brought, and Solomon ordered, "cut the capacitor in half! That way each of you can have part of it."

"Yes, that is a very good idea! My circuit will be much faster this way anyway", Beelzebub (b-) exclaimed. "I agree, let's do it that way, it's a good compromise", the crocodile said joyfully. "Cut the capacitor (二)! Cut it! Cut it!" Beelzebub screamed. "Do it! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR YOU MORON KING!" shouted the crocodile.

Beelzebub and the crocodile (丷) placed down the big dinosaur bone (丨) they used to transport the huge live capacitor. Promptly King Solomon descended from the Anchor Inn's toilet (-an4) and cut the capacitor as well as the dinosaur bone (丨) in halves (半) using a huge broadsword.

Beelzebub and the crocodile carried their capacitor halves (半) home, and they all lived happily ever after. - Mnemonic by Matthias, over 2 years ago | add a painting
