When I was in elementary school the teacher would refer to Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana as MIMAL, going down from the top and moving down, and she claimed Mimal was the name of this guy, and that Minnesota is his funny little hat. But now I can see his tray, and his KFC... except he seems to be holding the tray with his shaft, but sure enough, I see it ;P
Yeah, my teacher used to say something similar to that, just that each state had its own gimmick so that it would be easier to remember. I remember that he also shared the name of MIMAL, but he was a chef at KFC. His hat was sagging down because a Mini-soda had spilled on it, his face was where his Eye-owa was, and his stomach was in Missouri because he ate some of the chicken.
I can remember what Arkansas and Louisiana were for, but I think they had to do with clothing.
