    The best sharps and flats reminder I've ever heard:

    Father Christmas Gave Dad An Electric Blanket
    Blanket Exploded And Dad Got Cold Feet

    I use the Electric blanket version, but I also like:

    Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle
    Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles' Father

    If you are one of those people who likes word patterns then the exact reverse that this gives means that one phrase can help you learn both sharps and flats.
