> "Bad Boys Ravage Our Young Girls But Violet Goes Willingly -- and

I sort of collect these. The military used to teach:
Black boys rape our young girls but violet gives willingly. Or
Black boys rape our young girls behind victory garden walls. (Not very
useful if you don't remember victory gardens).

However, this was eventually deemed to vulgar, so it became:

Bad boys rape our young girls but violet gives willingly. (or goes
wanting).

I guess after women got into tech school, you hear this one a lot:
Bad boys race our young girls but violet generally wins. (I've also
heard this one as Big boys).

I had a lady tech once who had been taught:
Bad beer rots our young guts but vodka goes well.

After the first two "violet" ones, you'd sometimes hear added "Get some
now" which tells you the order of the tolerance codes (Gold, Silver,
None).

Others I have heard over the years in one or two isolated cases:
Billy Brown Revives on Your Gin But Values Good Whiskey.
Better be ready or your great big venture goes west.
Black Beetles Running on Your Garden Bring Very Good Weather.
Bye, bye Rosie, Off you go, Bristol via Great Western. (British?)

And one that I heard but can't remember completely was about Batman and
Robin and Gotham bridge. It was especially vulgar, but if anyone knows
the whole thing, mail it to me off list :-)

Some one at Nasa was offended enough, that they decided to make up their
own:

One of my odder interests :-)

Okay, I gave this a bit of thought a few years ago:

Well, how about:

Black Boots Rove Over Yellow Green Bricks: Victory Gets Won

That has three actual color names in it.

Or:

Bob Brown Read Our Yellow Green Brochure: Violet Got Windows

That has 5 colors phonetically. Nice thing is each ambiguous letter has
at least one that is really the color (b=brown, g=green)
