Primary Education schools often taught the Alphabet to young children using the following phrases;

A= ANNIE APPLE B= BOUNCING BEN C= CLEVER CAT D= DIPPY DUCK E= EDGAR ELEPHANT F= FIREMAN FRED G= GOLDEN GIRL H= HAIRY HAT MAN I= IPPY INK J= JUMPING JIM K= KICKING KING L= LUCY LAMP LADY M= MUNCHING MIKE N= NAUGHTY NICK O= OSCAR ORANGE P= POOR PETER PUPPY Q= QUARRELING QUEEN R= ROBBER RED S= SAMMY SNAKE T= TICKING TOM U= UPPY UMBERELLA V= VASE OF VIOLETS W= WICKED WATER WITCH X= KISSING COUSINS Y= YOYO MAN Z= ZIPPY ZEBRA

Althought kissing cousing may not be the best phrase for the letter X, the alphabet which is based on iliteration is an excellent teaching method for children, and most remember it far into adulthood.
