AncientSnow originated this lovely phrase today in the E2 catbox.


A mnemonic I use quite frequently.

The first letter of each word in Mr. Obama Can I Have a Pony corresponds to 7 elements:


Magnesium 12

Oxygen 8

Carbon 6

Iodine 53

Helium 2

Aluminum 13

Phosphorus 15


Next to each element is its atomic number. THIS IS IMPORTANT. 12 is December, 8 is the 8th day. On the 8th day of December, 1941, the United States declared war on Japan, following the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Next comes 6 (June) of 1953, which was the very famous execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for treason. The next number, 2, refers to their double deaths.

Then 1/31/5. Which, of course, was the birth date of Frank O'Hara, the author.

What we have so far:

12/8/41 Declaration of war against japan

6/53 Death of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg

1/31/1905 Birth of Frank O'Hara

I know what you are saying:

"You are mental defective, I saw that when I saw the node title. I didn't even see the original node title, I just saw Japan, Rosenberg, O'Hara etc. etc."


Putting it all together:

The last bit is a little tricky and may seem convoluted to some of you.

Squint your eyes at these three items, ponder them. I want you to really think about it. Okay, two more clues.

  • Mr. Obama, the 44th POTUS, has his roots in Kenya.
  • In Kenya, they eat zebras (horse ponies).

Obviously, this is a recipe.
