Bureaucracy

How do I spell it

For years, I have not been able to remember how to spell bureaucracy. I look it up every time. What is it about this word? Bu-, well, it definitely starts with “Booooo!” when I know I am going to need to spell it. Bu.r.eau-, hmm, how about burro (small donkey) and crazy. So, that gets us to small-donkey + crazy. Next, we need to flip the donkey around so it becomes crazy donkey. Wait, leave poor donkey alone. It is fine where it is: bureau.cracy. Holy cow donkey, I did it!

Feel free to test me on bureaucracy next time you see me.
