    When I was a DMC (I suppose I still technically am), I would change the order to BWARF -- and suggest students remember to "bwarf" before getting in the water.
    I found it really helped it stick for those who had trouble with the usual version.

    Another mnemonic I remember hearing was "Bangkok Women Really Aren't Female".

    Any more funny (or rude) acronyms for the pre-dive safety check, got a bit of a competition going with a fellow instructor.
