Roy G Biv. Easy. yanbu.

Richard of York gave battle in vain clearly never featured in their education then! I'm not that much older than Katie.

SavoyCabbage Thu 04-Dec-14 11:07:53

Yanbu. Or as cbeebies would say nubay.

ZingOfSeven Thu 04-Dec-14 11:09:02

I didn't know the acronym till I came to UK but I knew the right order since I was 5.

Richard of York gave battle in vain!

Everyone knows this. Sigh. It doesn't even make sense but it serves a purpose.

Similarly; my very early morning jam sandwich usually nauseate people, for the planets.

The Rainbow song on Show Me Show Me, although verbally correct, has Violet child before Indigo child.

Unless they've corrected it since I last saw it.

No no no. Yabu.

It's 'My Vet Earns Money Just Stitching Up Nasty Pooches' :D

ZingOfSeven Thu 04-Dec-14 11:16:35

lovely

is Pluto a planet again?

PenguinsandtheTantrumofDoom Thu 04-Dec-14 11:18:11

grin. It will just have to nauseate. Not people.

TiggyD Thu 04-Dec-14 11:19:34

I refuse to acknowledge the colour "Indigo".

LovleyRitaMeterMaid Thu 04-Dec-14 11:20:13

It was when I got taught that. It's not now. Poor Pluto.

TiggyD Thu 04-Dec-14 11:20:30

I checked on Pluto recently and it's still a planetoid.

WerewolfBarMitzvah Thu 04-Dec-14 11:20:37

Mm I've never heard the Richard of York thing.

juneybean Thu 04-Dec-14 11:21:20

I was taught my very elderly mother just sat upon nine pins ... Before Pluto was ousted

ZingOfSeven Thu 04-Dec-14 11:21:43

Tiggy

grin you take a stand mate.

Both wrong. It's 'My Very Easy Method Just Speeds Up Naming Planets'. wink

Poor Pluto. sad

As for cbeebies. Think they all need to go back to school.

LovleyRitaMeterMaid Thu 04-Dec-14 11:23:25

My one is the only one that makes sense if you omit Pluto.

DS once asked me the difference between Navy Blue, Dark Blue and Indigo.

Tied myself into terrible knots, I did blush

I seem to remember reading a few years ago that 'they' did away with indigo and violet and just called it purple. It was something to do with somebody wanting 7 colours in the rainbow because 7 is a special number but there are only 6.
