Mnemonic

Flies really really like to eat SHINY pies.

(The pie is shiny because it is coated with the fly's glistening vomit. I'm not just being sick for the sake of sick here. Flies don't have a stomach, so they have to vomit acid on their food - digesting it OUTSIDE THEIR BODY, so to speak. Then they suck up the liquefied remains through their straw-like mouth-hole.)
