    This is one that I found in the Web. Very interesting website:

    Fluoroacetate inhibits the citrate->cis-aconitate, and isocitrate->cis-aconitate reactions.
    Mnemonic: brushing a citrus fruit with a cleanisng fluoride toothpaste (Fluoroacetate) prevents the deterioration/transformation of such this citrus fruit (citrate) into a toxic conium plant (conitate).

    This is from a webpage dedicated to visual and narrative mnemonics for biochemistry, particularly to the Krebs cycle and urea cycle among others.
