Ryan takes ecstasy and other US presidents

Struggling to remember the names of Cold War US presidents? Here's a handy South London mnemonic taught to my daughter by her history teacher!

'Ryan takes ecstasy. Kenny just nicks Ford cars really badly'
= Roosevelt/Truman/Eisenhower/Kennedy/Johnson/Nixon/Ford/Carter/Reagan/Bush

How about Russian leaders in the same period:
'Silly Kids Buy Guns. Yes'
= Stalin/Khrushchev/Brezhnev/Gorbachev/Yeltsin
